Now, stalking the Tijuana nights accompanied by the glint off the barrel of his rifle, Vetter hunts -- A Man Apart. Also starring Larenz Tate and Timothy.]]>

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 justice...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.
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?
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.
"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.
"A Man Apart" is the story of a volatile DEA agent, Sean Vetter (Vin Diesel), who along with his partner Demetrius Hicks (Larenz Tate), go undercover to bring down the top Mexican drug lord. With the toppling of the top drug lord in Mexico, a new cartel begins to assume control of Mexico, led by a man called Diablo, this new drug cartel is even more ruthless than the one before it. To get the attention of the DEA, more importantly Sean Vetter, Diablo orders a hit on him, Vetter narrowly escapes with his life, sadly his wife was not so lucky. Vowing to take revenge on Diablo, Vetter strikes a deal with the very drug lord he just put away, and with the aid of his DEA partner, Demetrius, sets out to deliver his own lethal brand of justice.
Many revenge films have been hugely successful in Hollywood such as, "Desperado", "The Punisher", "Four Brothers", and many others. Now, "A Man Apart" can be added to the list, directed by F.Read more ›
