* ShownTheirWork: The blue-ray release features several documentaries covering the pre-production of the movie, where the filmmakers do everything from talk former child soldiers through their traumas to start a diamond mine - documenting the ''stacks'' of cash they spend on bribes - just so they can say they know what they're talking about.

* SpecialEffectsFailure: JenniferConnelly's character had a tear digitally added to her face when [[spoiler:Danny calls her cell phone as he's about to die]].
