Great Men, Good Story, Okay Movie
21 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the story of the black man's struggle for equal rights within the United States Navy. I had never heard of this movie but I am a fan of Ossie Davis so when I seen him on the box cover I wanted to watch it. This was a very good movie from many aspects but it could have been so much better with a little more dramatic action during the naval battle scenes and a good score (music). It tells the story very good but that is all it does, tells a story much like a narrative program. It's not much of a cinematic movie but with about 6 months more of production and an Alan Silvestri sound track it would be so much better. Regardless, you owe it to yourself to see this movie purely for the historical value.
