    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
    The main body of the film earns comparison with the military parables of John Ford, particularly "The Long Gray Line" and "The Wings of Eagles."

    There's something refreshing about its utterly unembarrassed embrace of the familiar. The director, George Tillman Jr., either doesn't notice or doesn't give a hoot about the way Scott Marshall Smith's script piles up cliches.
  5. Gooding and De Niro bring their characters to vivid life despite the unsubtle screenplay and hyperactive music score.
  6. It's hard not to like a movie like Men of Honor, but it's entirely possible.

    A bad movie about a great man.
