Overview

The story of Navy diver Carl Brashear, the first African-American to achieve the rank of Master Diver, Men of Honor comes to DVD in an excellent Special Edition package. As DVDs pile up on the shelves, that phrase often gets tacked on to even the most sparse discs. Here, however, the title is richly deserved. Boasting a stellar transfer -- a 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen picture -- this is another good buy to show off the visual attributes of the medium. Men of Honor isn't the kind of film that absolutely requires Dolby Digital Sound, but the 5.1 treatment puts the underwater action center stage. These are fine additions, to be sure, but the special edition moniker usually refers to one thing -- extras. Here, viewers get a great commentary from director George Tillman Jr., star Cuba Gooding Jr., and the producer and writer. There is also a bevy of deleted scenes, including an alternate ending. These are available with or without a commentary track from Tillman. Also included are a pair of featurettes, including a look at the real Carl Brashear's life. In addition, this DVD also offers an animatic storyboard, a music video for the film's theme song, and the usual trailers and TV spots. All in all, Men of Honor is a solid release and the excellent extras make it worth owning.

A real life movie that shows the courage and determination of a man who others were intent on stopping and putting down. It teaches us never to give up on something that we truly seek to have. This movie makes one feel strong and able to 'hang in there' when the going gets tough. What a great movie!

THIS MOVIE HAS GOT TO BE BOUGHT AND WATCHED. THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH WORDS TO DESCRIBE THE ACTING SKILL. THE ENDING KEPT YOU AT THE EDGE OF YOUR SEAT!

Honor, Loyalty and Discipline... the qualities of a man. Never-giving up and never accepting defeat, a spirit of life and strength. A movie that demonstrate "the only tradion I know: Honor".
