This film has deep meaning and shows how the determination of one man can make such a difference in a society that seems unchangable... Throughout the film you are grasped into the life of Carl Brashear and his natural talent and love for the water.
With this love he decides to join the Navy with a promise to his dad "to be the best, and never give up, EVER" through the pain of breaking the barrier of racism it shows how he managed to survive the tourment.
This DVD has special features describing the making of the film, and shows scenes with Carl Brashear himself, and once you have finished watching this I assure you you will feel a new life within yourself to achieve the goals you are heading for, absolutely amazing!
The film which had eleven nominations for various awards, starred Robert De Niro as Master Chief Billy Sunday, a role for which he was ideally suited and Cuba Gooding Jr. as Chief Carl Brashear, a role to which his acting brings all the necessary characteristics, making both their characters believable.
It may not be accurate history but there is truth in there somewhere. Recommended
However British fans should be aware that when buying the BLU RAY - the 'US' edition on 20th Century Fox is REGION A LOCKED - so it won't play on UK machines unless they're chipped to be 'all regions' which most aren't.
Buy the UK version instead - it's relatively inexpensive now - a looker on the Format - and a quality triumph-over-adversity movie you probably haven't seen...
A must see film. One of my all time favourites.
