DESPITE its moral tone and political speeches there is not much in Blood Diamond that really shows a country in crisis.

After all, we should have been reminded that this is war-torn Sierra Leone.

The moral side is left to Jennifer Connelly as a journalist concerned about the diamond trade and Djimon Hounsou, as the ex-rebel captive.
