It deserves a court-martial for taking such a promising premise and grinding it into mediocrity.

Even if the saccharin level is raised to gargantuan heights, the diving scenes are exciting, right? Wrong.

It's hard to sit through Men of Honor without being pulled out of the story by the nagging feeling that creative license runs wild and unchecked throughout this blatantly fictionalized screenplay.

Swelling syrupy music and lingering shots draw out each and every triumph with numbing overkill.
