The best.

I really want to say that this movie is the best. It is a work that is really perfect, no need for words ... the performance power of the two principals was truly amazing.

Cudding Jr. showed Junior his unsteady will to good acting skills. Acting by a company that declares him · de Niro is also a nonesuch ...

The process of experiencing all hardships is totally sad The will to win is truly impressed ... The tears of my boss who takes in a serious injury and pushes it out to the bottom of the frustration My beloved spirit truly makes my breasts touched...

The content of the movie and the plot, shooting, acting ability, impression and so on all really harmonize perfectly ... Tears are flowing when we overcome what it was impossible to break through that difficult ... Oh. , It is really very moving ...

"Goddammit Cookie, move your ass, I want my TWELVE!" - De Niro is awake in this one

Inspiring, but by-the-numbers epic melodrama based on the true story of Carl Brashear, the first African American master diver in the United States Navy, directed by George Tillman, Jr., penned and shot with a sense of old school storytelling & filmmaking in the vein of the all time classic "From Here to Eternity" or the 80's unforgettable tearjerker "An Officer and a Gentleman".

Cuba Gooding Jr. stars as Brashear offering an acceptable performance of playing the character for almost three decades with fine support of Robert De Niro, in one of his very few good performances since "Casino", playing the irascible Master Chief Sunday and Charlize Theron, even if her character was unnecessary to the plot, as his 'attention seeker' alcoholic wife. The rest of the cast, just comply in their jobs, David Keith & the late great Powers Boothe can play Military figures with accuracy & conviction even in their sleep such as Michael Rapaport can play his usual outcast / nerdy character to almost perfection by the time this movie was shot.

"Men of Honor" is visually beautiful to look at and the production values are top notch, but the screenplay itself is a bit cliché-ridden, nothing much happens beyond what we could expect from a movie like this (good black man being pushed to the limit by the evil authoritarian white man and ostracized by his fellow white comrades, then he gains the respect he deserves from them all and the evil white man got a change of heart and, ultimately, helps him) became, somewhat, predictable and the direction didn't helped it being too mellow and corny with the Mark Isham's maudlin score being the pinnacle for grab a Kleenex and sob along...

The special effects for Gooding's prosthesis are very competent, the same used about 6 years earlier for Gary Sinise in "Forrest Gump".

In short, "Men of Honor" delivers a passable Sunday afternoon flick, and even if it isn't a masterpiece of the genre, it possesses a strangely re-watchable quality, maybe because it's nicely paced and engaging to look at.

This well-acted story of the end of segregation in the military

This one is a great one! Robert De Niro and Cuba Gooding have teamed up to make a powerful and very influential film. This is the true story of the first black US Navy diver and the obstacles he faced in attaining his certification at the hands of a racist Master diver. Along the way, he must also face plain old bigotry from all of his classmates, none of whom want him in their class.

They move out of the barracks when he arrives. Ultimately, he becomes certified and goes on to have a great career as a US Navy diver. Watch this one! It's a great tale of courage and honor. As the story unfolds, we get to watch racism slowly dissipate and everyone begins to respect men one at a time. This well-acted story of the end of segregation in the military is told through the true experiences of Carl Brashear.

Ultimately it is a story of human honor and dignity triumphing over small mindedness, bureaucracy, and prejudice. Some of the scenes are deliberate attempts at crowd-pleasing, but they are nevertheless effective.
