3.0 out of 5 stars Worth watching April 13, 2004
Rating System:
1 star = abysmal; some books deserve to be forgotten
2 star = poor; a total waste of time
3 star = good; worth the effort
4 star = very good; what writing should be
5 star = fantastic; must own it and share it with others
STORY: DEA agent is out to take revenge on the drug dealers that killed his wife.
1) Forget XXX or Fast & Furious, this is a much better Vin Diesle movie (Pitch Black is still his best though). Vin does some decent acting and his general charisma carry a large portion of the movie.
2) Good attempt at developing the relationship of Vin's character with other characters in the movie
3) Not a huge action flick but enough guns to keep this drama moving
4) Some suspension of belief is needed in this movie
5) Seemed the editing didn't explain a plot twist or two but cut things out leaving gaps in the story.
OVERALL: We enjoyed the movie and didn't feel like we wasted out time with it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Man Coming Apart April 25, 2003
By A Customer
Better than I expected, based on the mixed reviews I've read. Vin & Larenz were good, I was surprised they made such a believable & natural pair! & the story did have a couple of surprises (for me). Watch Diesel's expressive face convey the way Vetter is often on the verge of exploding from pain & anger, Vin does this even when he's not the focus of the action.
Vetter is a man overwhelmed by his wife's murder, & no one put him in check before he went completely haywire, even though they saw signs of trouble. I would like to have seen the guy referred for some therapy or at least have a real good cry, but that wouldn't make for much of an action movie.
There were certainly holes in the story, & the 'happily married man phase' was a bit overdone. Diesel acted so smitten & the wife so sweet she had 'DEATH' written across her forehead! But it's all make believe anyway, and still worth seeing and listening to (good music). So Vin, where's the soundtrack?

5.0 out of 5 stars Vin can act - no really, he CAN! January 2, 2004
I know a lot of people laugh at the thought, but this film illustrates that Vin Diesel can act...he's actually damn good at it.
I think this is Diesel's best film ever. Sure, it's got lots of action and fighting, but what really makes this movie for me is the transformation of Diesel's character from beginning to end. It's quite possibly the most tangible thing throughout the entire film. That's not even doing it jumps out the screen, grabs your heart in it's fist and bursts it...yeah, that's a little better.
You owe it to yourself to at least check this film out as a rental. You'll be glad you did.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of Vin's Best April 14, 2003
I don't understand why critics are so hard on Vin, I think he has great range as an actor, personally, and he's the best action star of this generation. Sly and Arnold always gave the cheesey one-liners, and couldn't pull a tear outta me if they bit me on the ass. But "A Man Apart" really demonstrated Vin's acting abilities, and he can go far, in my opinion.
"A Man Apart" was a pretty dramatic movie, moreso than expected. It had a lot of heart, and plenty of action, and some real comedic moments, which were well placed, considering the plot. I didn't hear any cheesy one-liners, which I was thankful for, cause, in my opinion, it destroyed Vin's blockbuster "XXX."
AMA was nice break from some of the other flops I've seen lately, and I was glad I spent the money to see it. The only downfall, no that I said that is this, the trailer gave away soo much, too much. You basically know the entire plot from the trailer, which was a mistake made by the production company's, and one reason why I don't have to tell you the story, you know it. But I strongly reccomend this movie, Vin fan's won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vin Diesel at his best April 4, 2003
By A Customer
I just saw this movie and I loved it. It was a tear jerker. It shows that Vin can be be more than an action hero. This movie also shows that he has depth and that he can act in drama movies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nobody does it like The Diesel November 4, 2004
This movie truly shows another side of Vin Diesel in a way. He's such a bad ass in his other movies. He's a bad ass here too but he's also a sensative man. He plays Sean Vetter, a former gang member turned DEA agent whose street smarts make him the top dog. In the beginning of the movie, he brings down Memo Lucero and it looks like the drug empire is over. But not so fast. A new dealer named Diablo orders a hit out on Vetter at his house and the bullet meant for him accidentally hits his wife and she loses her life. He's devastated by the loss of his wife and seeks revenge against Diablo. Vin Diesel was a perfect pick for the lead role. The emotion and intensity of Vetter was captured perfectly by Diesel. And Larenz Tate as Demetrius Hicks is the perfect compliment to Vetter with his subtlety and calmness. This is one of the best action movies ever made and it's Vin Diesel's best movie ever!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great June 2, 2003
By Caleb
I thought that they did a great job on this movie. Now i know why its rated "R" I mean for the language, blood, nudity. I would recommend it for people to 16-17 years old.

3.0 out of 5 stars New Diesel Flick - A Man Apart September 4, 2003
By Brandon
This movie was not what I expected it to be. It's sold as an action film when it is actually a solid drama that happens to have guns in it. When I think action I think over the top thrills and intense stunts. I think adreniline, fast-paced suspense, and a certain momentum. I didn't find any of that in this film. But what I did find was a genuinely interesting story. Perhaps the concept has been done before - but that's the case with a lot of films these days. Looking past that: the movie does have substance. It delivers believable emotion and is worth sitting through at least once. I'd say the main draw is getting to see Vin Diesel stretch his wings a bit and hit us with something fresh. Sean Vetter is a little more unique than any of his previous characters.Perhaps not dramatically so - but we can see that Vin put forth an effort. I like the direction he's moving in - and you must admit - seeing him move in a different direction is reason enough to watch the movie. This one isn't about and edgy street racer like in The Fast And The Furious. Or an attitude-driven adreniline junkie as seen in XXX. This is a story about a man who loses his wife. A man who is driven nearly to the breaking point. A man who discovers what his friends are made of when he truly needs them the most.
