This is all quite uplifting on its surface, but in attempting to hit the requisite highlights of an inspiring biography, director George Tillman Jr. (Soul Food) reduces Brashear's achievement to a succession of clichés, forcing Gooding and De Niro to battle sentiment with their noteworthy performances. As Sunday's neglected wife, Charlize Theron is completely extraneous; Hal Holbrook's diving-school commander is a ranting caricature; and newcomer Aunjanue Ellis barely registers as Brashear's wife (in part because their obligatory romance is handled with an utter lack of finesse). There's no question that Brashear's efforts are heroic and worthy of recognition, so Men of Honor serves its basic purpose. Still, one can't help but wonder if Brashear's story would be even more impressive with a more authentic treatment. --Jeff Shannon
This movie will make you really angry that this actually happened.
Men of Honor continuously reminds me of the great obstacles African Americans had to overcome in order to achieve the great feats that they have.
That storyline also is inspiring but is handled much less skillfully than the first storyline.
A very powerful movie with an extreme message....NEVER GIVE UP!!! In a few words this movie is brilliant with a magnificent story to tell and emmy winning actors. Read morePublished 15 days ago by Rigoberto Duque
