Stirring story--may be appropriate for some teens.

Brashear is all sheer determination and nothing else, displaying none of the vulnerability that would make him into a believable human being.

This seaman's tale languishes in shallow waters.

Strangled with formula.

Courier-Journal (Louisville, KY)

The decision to shift some of the attention to De Niro's character...dilutes the power of Brashear's fascinating life story.

...a well-made throwback to the days of old, when telling a story was what mattered; not special effects or flashy editing.

An unfortunately sappy telling of a truly amazing story.

The performances, especially De Niro's quiet rage, occasionally lift Men of Honor above its predictability

a pair of potentially fascinating characters at its core, two wonderful actors in the lead roles and a boatload of good intentions. So why does this telling of the life of Carl Brashear seem enervated rather than invigorating?

It holds few surprises, but it's just the ticket if you're in the mood for two hours of proudly traditional entertainment.

...the liberties Hollywood took in dressing it up only serve to undermine its effectiveness.

Bypasses the ambition and integrity found in a similar-themed but markedly better film like Norman Jewison's The Hurricane.

With every dramatic scene and turn of phrase molded by a formulaic, Screenwriting 101 mentality, it's pure Hollywood pap.

So full of schmaltz that it leaves viewers in constant jeopardy of gagging.

Generic and poky, redeemed only somewhat by the two leads and the periodic effective segments.

The story is inspiring. But Men of Honor just isn't inspired.
