Men of honor is all you need to know

on 5/31/2012

This movie is a masterpeice. It's very powerful, and realistic. This movie shows how segragetion made ones man's life a living hell when he tried to join the Navy. Robert Deniro is wonderful. He portrays his character of Master Chief Billy Sunday perfectly, and Cuba Gooding Jr. does an equally amazing job of playing the only colored sailor trying to become a diver.

Review Men Of Honor tackles military racism during the '50s and '60s in a straightforward manner. Some scenes are probably overplayed, but the technique is effective at underlining the kind of opposition encountered... the acting by Gooding Jr. and DeNiro is of a high enough caliber...

ReviewSource Chicago Sun-Times
Review Carl Brashear was quite a guy. A black sharecropper's son without a high school education, he signed up for the Navy right after World War II. Harry Truman had integrated the services, but the Navy was slow to change, and blacks were guided toward two job choices: They could become cooks or officers' valets. Brashear (Cuba Gooding Jr.) wanted to be a diver. "Men of Honor" tells the story of how he became one despite everything, and then how he insisted on returning to active duty after losing a part of a lower leg in an onboard accident...Cuba Gooding Jr. is the kind of actor who bubbles even when he's idling. That kind of energy wouldn't be appropriate here, and he dials down and delivers a strong, convincing performance.
