In wartime, the first casualty is always truth. January 1991. The world watching the Gulf War. Day and night, millions tune in to CNN-TV to see a real life and death drama played out in the cities and deserts of Iraq. As the U.S. Forces take a starring role, the PR department at the White House is working overtime. What they're looking for is a hero. What they find is a scandal. What a troubled officer must now uncover is...the truth.
MEN OF HONOUR
One of those rare films that grabs you by the gut and never lets you go, Men of Honour was inspired by the life of Carl Brashear (played by Academy Award® winning actor Cuba Gooding Jr.), a man who fought all odds to become a US Navy Master Diver.
Academy Award® winning actor, Robert DeNiro, plays Carl's training officer, Billy Sunday, who wants no part of Carl or his ambitions. He drives Carl beyond the levels of any normal endurance in an attempt to make him falter and quit. Yet Carl never gives up and over time, the two men establish a respect that will ultimately see them battling alongside each other as they must fight to protect their honour and their lives.
An inspirational story about achieving the impossible, Men of Honour is an adventure into the human spirit and determination with an incredible finish that will leave audiences cheering.
