Gooding is the ideal actor to portray Brashear. Not only does Gooding perform the physical demands of the role, he also meets all the emotional challenges. It is an unforgettable performance.

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

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.

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?

There's nothing in this movie you haven't seen 12 times before.

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

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

engrossing enough to qualify as solid entertainment with a meaningful message

By the time its clunking climax rolls around, the film has built up enough honest good will that you can forgive its tear- jerking pomp.
