Summary: A young black man singlehandedly wages war on the racist standards of the U.S. Navy in the 1950s in this stirring drama. Based on the life of famed Navy diver Carl Brashear, the film stars Cuba Gooding Jr. as the young Navy chef who makes his mark on a superior and gets sent to the Navy Salvage School. Under the command of racism-spouting, corncob-smoking Master Chief Diver Billy Sunday (De Niro), Brashear charts an incredibly determined course through insults, fights and humiliations to achieve his goal of becoming a diver. But while he gains Sunday's respect as the toughest of the tough, Brashear must still face adversity in the form of a bigoted, senile commander (Hal Holbrook) who refuses to break the color barrier. Charlize Theron, David Keith, Michael Rapaport and Powers Boothe co-star in this powerful film. (R) (AC,AL,V)
