Based on the life of Carl Brashear, Men Of Honor is an inspiring tale of one man
The anamorphically enhanced 2.30:1 DVD exhibits a picture with bold, well-balanced colors, accurate fleshtones, and deep blacks. Contrast and shadow delineation are nicely rendered, even in the murky underwater scenes. Viewing in a completely blackened room is recommended for optimal visual information in these scenes. Perhaps to enhance the 1960s setting of the film, images can have a soft character, but otherwise the picture is nicely detailed. There is enough edge enhancement to distract, but no bothersome pixelization. Minor source element artifacts are detected at times. (Suzanne Hodges)

I read Widescreen Review because itís simply one of the most intelligent sources of A/V information, both in terms of format and content. Product reviews are honest and thorough. I humbly admit that for the last two years I have been borrowing my brother-in-laws' copies of WSR when he was finished reading them. I am now happy to report that as of last week, I am an official subscriber of WSR and will be for many years to come. I have not been in the Custom A/V industry very long (two years), but I have spent the last 12 years in the computer and networking world, and I know thoughtful, well-sourced copy when I read it. I have come to trust WSR's reviews as a benchmark from which I form many opinions. The hard work of each reviewer makes each of us who reads it a much more credible source of information for our clients. A mentor of mine once told me that no one person has all the answers. The trick is knowing who you should listen to, and WSR has proved itself worthy month after month.
