  1. 88
    In-depth performances by De Niro and Gooding Jr. provide the oxygen for this extremely shipshape biopic.
  2. Inspirational biographical movie that really works.
  3. 70
    If you don't view it too analytically, Men of Honor provides almost more uplift than a body can handle.
  4. 50
    In an effort to turn Brashear's life into a larger-than-life sermon, Men of Honor almost manages to make it all feel like an overbearing crock.
  5. Gooding and De Niro bring their characters to vivid life despite the unsubtle screenplay and hyperactive music score.
  6. Reviewed by: Sean Means

    A bad movie about a great man.
