    DiCaprio and Connelly give off the sexual tension of pickled herring.
  2. Director Edward Zwick tried to make a great movie, but somewhere in the process he forgot to make a good one.

The story is strong; the cinematography is excellent; and overall, Blood Diamond does everything I want a movie to do (to educate, captivate, and be enjoyable). Full Review »
