The above rating is an average of the critic reviews below.

(Close new window when finished with Full Reviews)

James Berardinelli, Internet Critic  Full Review
Above Average "Gray's direction is kinetic enough that no one in the audience will become bored, and, despite a few mild plot twists, the storyline is straightforward enough that only someone who spends an inordinate amount of time at the snack counter will lose track of what's going on. Ultimately, however, while A Man Apart is effectively paced and nicely choreographed, the fundamental letdown of the ending results in a mild sense of dissatisfaction.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Average "A Man Apart sets chunks of nonsense floating down in a river of action. The elements are all here--the growling macho dialogue, the gunplay, the drugs, the cops, the revenge--but what do they add up to? Some sequences make no sense at all, except as kinetic energy.''

USA TODAY  Full Review
Average "It's all fast and furious up to its draggy finale, and yes, it could spark a sequel. Prepare yourself for coming dread in 18 months: A Man Together.''

TV Guide Online  Full Review
Below Average "The film works best when it's sticking to the guns and poses conventions of macho crime pictures. When it reaches for emotional resonance, the results range from unconvincing to ludicrous. Diesel is a great screen presence but an actor of limited range, and the scenes in which Tracy and Sean slow-dance in the sand in front of their suspiciously expensive-looking beach house are so blissful that her death is inevitable.''

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

These opinions are high, but not quite as high as I thought they would be. Looking at the detailed opinions, it appears that many felt the content was too strong. Too much nudity, violence and profanity were the main comments. I would assume the lower opinions came from these people.

There are however, a large percentage of very high opinions ("Fantastic" and "Excellent") which obviously indicates many moviegoers loved A Man Apart.

If the high level of strong content is not something that would concern you, I would highly recommend A Man Apart.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before moviegoer opinions are collected)
An intense, hard hitting police drama where Vin Diesel actually gets to do some real acting. Fans will likely be pleased with his acting and his role. He plays a very tough and dedicated cop with a sensitive side. There's some great gun battle action a decent amount of humor and a very good story that keeps you guessing. I have little doubt that A Man Apart will receive some very high moviegoer opinions.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Sean Vetter (Vin Diesel) and his partner Demetrius Hicks (Larenz Tate) came up on the mean streets of Los Angeles but now work together as DEA agents, fighting a seven-year war to stem the virulent drug pipeline along the US/Mexico border. Dubbed "the gunslingers" for their tough street tactics, their perseverance pays off when they take down notorious Baja Cartel kingpin Memo Lucero (Geno Silva).

With Lucero locked away in a maximum security prison, Vetter is finally able to go home to his wife, Stacy (Jacqueline Obradors), a sanctuary from the harsh realities of his job.

But in the wake of Lucero's arrest, a mysterious figure, known only as Diablo, emerges to violently claim the Baja Cartel. And when Vetter and Hicks set their sights on identifying and stopping this dangerous and elusive new player, Diablo makes the fight personal – robbing Vetter of the one person who gives his life meaning – Stacy.

With nothing to lose, Vetter pulls out every hidden resource at his disposal to bring Diablo down – including an unlikely alliance with the jailed Cartel boss Lucero. He will stop at nothing to avenge his wife's murder, edging dangerously close to the line between justice and lawlessness, even if it sets him at odds with the police unit to which he has dedicated his life.
