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.
This movie moves me every time I watch it. This movie plus how to kill a mockingbird and West Wing inspired me to pursue my dreams of being a lawyer.Published 10 days ago by Jaz_b
