A riveting tale of bucking the odds and overcoming discrimination, Men Of Honor tells the story of Carl Brashear, the son of a Kentucky sharecropper who joins the newly-integrated Navy. Carl's training officer, Billy Sunday, wants no part of Carl or his ambitions. Sunday, a celebrated master Chief Navy Diver whose exploits as a troublemaker are as legendary as his accomplishments as a diver, relentlessly taunts and challenges Carl, expecting him to falter and quit. But Carl has other ideas. His goal is clear, his determination fixed. Nothing will stand in the way of his dream of becoming a Navy Diver. Not even Billy Sunday.
History is made by those who break the rules.. Against formidable odds -- and an old-school diving instructor embittered by the U.S. Navy's new, less prejudicial policies -- Carl Brashear sets his sights on becoming the Navy's first African-American master diver in this uplifting true story. Their relationship starts out on the rocks, but fate ultimately conspires to bring the men together into a setting of mutual respect, triumph and honor.. Men of Honor Wiki
Overrated and pretty boring.
I thought this was a great story and overall movie. Very inspirational and definitely underrated. Easily a five star movie.
Movie is played in many Chief Petty Officer initiation to teach Chiefs the value of the Anchor. The only thing that bothers me, is the fact that they use a "Master Chief" when the Master Chief rate was not established back then. Other then that, 5 stars.
This is the best movie I have seen and I'm only 9
this movie is among the beast i have ever seen in my life, that may not be many but if you haven't seen this movie you should see it and if you have seen it watch it a few more times.

I LOVED this movie. The story was so well-told, and the acting was superb. I've always loved the military and the movies about the strength and endurance of the armed forces. Everyone should see this movie!!
