Review
Based on a true story we follow Carl Brashear, son of an impoverished share cropper, and his determination to become a diver in the American Navy's search and rescue division. Carl is hindered every step of the way by his training officer, Billy Sunday, a bigot and a racist, but Carl's relentless determination and faith in himself eventually wares down his instructor, and what began as hatred gradually develops into respect. Men Of Honour is an old fashioned return to heroic drama, sadly it's a bit turgid and clichéd, but courtesy of its two stars just scrapes muster.
