In the scene showing the ships departure from New York harbor, the camera pans down the side of the ship as the men "man the rail", and shows that the ship is still tied up to the pier. See more »

A fitting tribute to the late Ossie Davis
16 March 2008 | by mediawatch-1See all my reviews

I enjoyed the movie. Despite the low budget and a foreigner that said he did not know there was discrimination in the American military this film is worth watching. A proper last film for Ossie Davis. With all the violent shoot em up movies out, this should be seen by young people alike. With the exception of Mr Davis and veteran actress Denise Nicholas the group of newcomers performed great. Shooting on location in Ireland added a touch that gave you the impression that you were actually there. Add to that actual footage of the ceremony honoring the crew of the USS Mason for their service to the country. May someone continue to produce these stories without worry of not being Oscar material. Bravo.
