Men of Honor Reviews
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.

Cuba Gooding Jr and Robert De Niro give power packed performances and the story of the film is quite good. Like most of the inspirational films, this is also slightly predictable and the film can't be accused for that.
