THIS IS LEONARDO DI CAPRIO'S NEW MOVIE. EVERYONE SHOULD SEE THIS MOVIE BECAUSE IT'S TRUE STORY. BEFORE THIS MOVIE I DIDN'T KNOW A LOT OF AFRICANS DIE OR TORTURE EVERYDAY BECAUSE OF DIAMONDS. I'M SO UPSET WHEN I SAW MOVIE, BUT I'M HAPPY BECAUSE I HAVE NEVER WANTED TO HAVE DIAMONDS AFTER THIS MOVIE I' SURE I WON'T HAVE IT.

It's very ugly what's happening with the diamonds and the african people. I thought the movie was a little bit too Hollywoodish, but it does have an important message.
