Blood Diamond

Corrected entry: The big diamond that Solomon found at the river changes shape and size at the end of the film.

Correction: When Solomon discovers the diamond it is rough. By the end of the film it has been cleaned, recut and polished - this happens to all diamonds.


Corrected entry: When Danny and Maddy share the wine, the red cap on the jug appears and disappears repeatedly without explanation.

Correction: You can see Maddy take off the red cap and then holding it in her hand.

Corrected entry: Danny Archer references the term "Bling Bling" in the conversation with Maddy early in the film. Because the song "Bling Bling" (of which the term is based) was released after the turn of the century, they would not know the term "Bling Bling" in the late 1990s, when the movie is set.

Correction: Actually, that song was released in 1999, and the term itself was coined by the Cash Money Millionaires a few years before. Danny Archer could easily have heard this term at the time the movie is set.

Corrected entry: When Maddy is taking photos of the families in the refugee camp about 15 shots are taken, and she is shooting through a chain link fence, yet when they cut to the scenes where they show her view through the lens, only one of the 15 shots shows the fence in the photos.

Correction: She is close enough to the fence to shoot through the holes without having the chain in the photos.

Jason Hoffman

Corrected entry: When Solomon talks to Archer about his son, he mentions that he likes to play soccer, yet in Sierra Leone, as in most other countries worldwide, soccer is called football. This is obviously a deliberate choice by the director/screenwriter because the movie is chiefly directed at American audiences.

Correction: While it is true most countries call it football, soccer is an acceptable alternative for talking about the game.
