Also include the Screenwriter as another voice in this commentary. The atmosphere is very congenial, with Director Tillman taking the lead for the majority of the commentary. He talks about the challenges in going from a small budget film like "Soul Food" to an action drama like 'Honor.'
Cuba is on hand to give some intriguing insight into the difficulty of wearing all the heavy diving apparatus while trying to stay in character.
There are some fun moments when Cuba visibly says nothing on screen, much to the chagrin of the ever present screenwriter. Smith, is a good sport, and admits that all writers should expect some alteration of their work at some level.
You will also learn a fair amount about the real man this story is based on, and some of the nitty-gritty about Naval affairs. 7/10
