Men of Honour - an old movie (2000) on TV last night

Men of Honor (released in the UK as Men of Honour) is a 2000 drama film, directed by George Tillman, Jr. and starring Robert De Niro and Cuba Gooding Jr. Okay I know this movie isn't new but I only saw it for the first time on TV (Channel 4) last night. Wow! I thought it was excellent, very moving and inspirational especially since it's based on the true story of Carl Brashear (January 19, 1931 – July 25, 2006) who was the first African American to become a U.S. Navy Master Diver in 1970. Cuba Gooding Jr was outstanding in the role of Carl Brashear. His acting always impresses me. In fact, that's why I watched the movie. I knew it would be good if he was starring in it. Have you seen this movie? If you haven't, I highly recommend it.
