Men of Honor Reviews
it's got a very generic inspirational tone and feel too it. A pretty decent film I must say. this is very predictable but still a well adapted script. I will say the surprising predicament of billy Sunday in this story was different than most films of this kind and it was nice to see..
great work from cuba gooding jr. A straightforward performance where he plays a determined diver who looks to prove that he can do what others said he couldn't. He held his own with the veteran de niro. A solid performance from Robert de niro too. The relationship between Carl and Billy is one of respect but of honor as well.
The film had very good editing. decent cinematography as well. Does make you wonder what other navy stories there were that involved black people.
Overall the film definitely inspires and uplifts. 3 out 5 stars for sure.
The true story of Carl Brashear, the first African-American master diver in the US Navy, and the first amputee diver. Shows his training, and the opposition he faced.
Interesting movie. Shows the courage and determination it took for Brashear to make it as a diver. Feels a bit flat otherwise, though: the story is told in fairly join-the-dots fashion and there is very little emotional attachment to the characters. Character development is reasonably shallow.
Solid performances from Cuba Gooding Jr and Robert De Niro in the lead roles.
