Despite the overflow of diamonds out there, many diamonds that are sold in stores are known as either conflict diamonds or blood diamonds, which are diamonds that were bought from terrorists or other people who cause great suffering to get the diamonds. "Blood Diamond" takes place during a civil war in Sierra Leone, where a group of revolutionaries known as the RUF have just invaded a small village of families. There they raped the women, killed the men, and took the children with them to train them to be revolutionaries too. One man that is spared is Solomon Vandy (Djimon Hounsou), a fisherman who's family is taken to a special prison, and who's son is being trained to be the next general of the FUS. Solomon is forced to fish a river for diamond stones, where he finds the biggest diamond ever seen by man.
Parents will want to keep this movie away from children. There is extreme violence and language. Recommended for ages 17 and up.
