It is hard to critique a movie like this. I would say, that Cuba Gooding Jr. is better in cop flicks, or comedies. As a serious role as a captain, is just not his cue. There is allot of hype, and fast breaks during the conversation ( reminded me of my own writing), which is probably alright for certain genres but not for a show like this.
Yet, it is a historical film. And, I have allot of respect for a film like this. I think young people can learn, allot from a film like this. So I do think it does go beyond a rating. Good job, as the intent was a well placed one. Have a good night, till then..
