The mercenary intervention in the Sierra Leone civil war (Executives Outcomes PMC) began in May, 1995 and ended in January, 1997. They were long since gone by the time of the RUF invasion of Freetown in January 1999 when the movie is set. It was actually a combination of British and UN troops who brought the war to an end in 2001. Possibly made deliberately to avoid associating EO with the fictional mercenaries, whose activities were much more sinister. See more »

I saw this on December 2nd in La Canada, CA @ a Sneak Preview...a week before it opened nationwide. How do I express my utter satisfaction & amazement with this film.
Take Leonardo DiCaprio's best performance over the last 15 years and multiply it by 10. He is mind-blowing. Awarding him an Oscar for Blood Diamond would not be a big enough compliment for the way he aced the role of Danny Archer.
The fabulous & flawless Charles Leavitt script is only enhanced by Ed Zwick's masterful directing job. Djimon Hounsou is perfectly cast and is more-than-believable when he wields a shovel.
And, Jennifer Connelly's understated elegance & expressiveness is captivating.
Put this movie at the top of your list.
