Rent it now!By a customer from London, England , 15 Feb 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]I was sceptical about this for a number of reasons: I?m tired of the same old USA army or navy shouting sadistic officer?s kind of movie. Also, De Niro, being great, tends to play the same role over and over again. However, what a surprise! The story itself, being true, is far beyond the regular story about someone who overcomes obstacles and succeeds. It really grabs you. The actors are impeccable, dramatic, sound, deeps. The direction is stunning. Cuba Gooding Jr. is phenomenal. It?s not a movie about fighting and it?s not about sadistic shouting officers. It?s about racism and the drive of one remarkable man not to care much about it, and achieve what he wanted to achieve: professionalism. What are you waiting for? Rent it.

Men of Honour - Outstanding Movie.By Cornetto (959 reviews) from Lancaster , 02 Jun 2007Men of Honour is an outstanding movie. This movie is the biography of Carl Brashear, who made it to be a US Driver against all odds of discrimination, predjuice and racism. He had an hard instuctor who didn't want him to be there so in a way Carl had to worker harder than anyone else. Magnificient story, super acting throughout. I really enjoyed it and highly recommend this as a first rate film.
An Honourable FilmBy Sharon Willmore from Hemel , 23 Mar 2007Based on a true life story of one mans mind blowing ordeal, up against truly incredible odds and literally smashing them to pieces!
Despite the inevitable saccarinization by Hollywood the nuts & bolts of his life story seem to be left intact & true to form [see bonus features] and it really shines through.
At times it takes all youve got to stop one shouting at the screen or crying out loud at the non-stop barrage that he has to endure. Whats beautiful here is the innocence robustness he displays in the face of real evil, malice and outright pig-ignorant stupidity.
Ultimately though, its the triumph of the human spirit thats the real winner here, and as such it should be in everyones collection. This could better be named A beautiful Mind [NO ref to Crowe] as that is what we see demonstrated time and again. Truly Wonderful Stuff!
Great idea, well executed with first rate actors.
Must See!! Excellent!!By a customer from London , 17 Jan 2007This film is excellent, well worth watching. Cuba Gooding Jr and Robert De Niro both take on their roles very well. It is an extremely moving film and the struggle the main character goes through just to prove himself. It is wonderful
