This is, as everyone knows, Vin Diesel's proof that he has range and depth with a character emotionally. He himself has said he loves getting in tune with a character. (Obviously moreso with his "Riddick" character of course.) So A Man Apart never seemed to be even hyped so much as a fantastic movie but moreso that Vin Diesel had to be a fantastic actor.
The plot was very tired as everyone has pointed out. There are dozens of movies similar to this. A cop's significant other/child/family was murdered (sometimes, and in this case as well, the main character was supposed to be killed right along with them) ordered by a convict whom this said cop busted in some way. Cop seeks revenge. Cop gets revenge.
A Man Apart is the same way, but carried by a normally rough-and-tumble action star (ironically, even this movie is labeled "Action") showing that he can pull off these extreme emotional stakes. Many thought it would be laughable to see Vin Diesel nearly loose his mind and go on a killing spree to avenge his wife. But like the man or not, he pulled this role off powerfully.
Sean watching his wife die under him while she was smiling through bloodied teeth repeating "I'm okay, I'm fine.." while he couldn't even speak on the phone to the police was wrenching to even watch. The bloodshot eyes (when drinking on the beach behind his house), the few seconds when realization first struck in while crying his wife's name (when Demetrius had to hold him down in his hospital bed), and the "come down" after the purposely insane shootout after he beats the man who actually did kill his wife, cleaning his wedding ring on his hand were undoubtedly the most powerful scenes in this movie.

Format: DVD
Vin Diesel stars as a DEA Agent out for revenge in "A Man Apart" and the results are solid.
THE STORY:
Former gang banger turned DEA Agent Sean Vetter makes the biggest bust of his career taking down the biggest drug distributor on the West Coast. Before he can celebrate his victory his wife is killed in a plot of revenge. Vetter must cope with his lose while setting out to find the people who killed his wife while keeping a new drug lord from taking over the turf.
THE COOL THINGS:
This is your standard macho tough guy "take no prisoners" movie. Diesel's cool "tough guy" persona shines through as he makes the rounds kicking butt and taking names of all the bad guy drug dealers out there. The powerful undertones of loss and companionship as Vetter's boys help him out makes the movie touching as well as a good action flick.
THE DVD EXTRAS:
DVD special fiends are in for a disappointment here as the movie only has 7 deleted scenes (all crappy) and trailers to speak for it. Surprisingly there's no commentary or featurettes to speak of.
THE VERDICT:
"A Man Apart" makes a solid rental for the evening and is definitely worth a watch. As far getting the DVD goes, with no features to speak of this one is probably only worth the pick up by true Diesel fans and collectors.
Final Grades:
Movie: 4 stars
Extras: 3 stars
Total: 3.5 stars

Despite the mixed critiques, luke warm reviews, A Man Apart ain't all that bad...Diesel is still in his early stage of his acting career so there is much room for improvement...You still have to give the man an A for effort at least. But, soon he will definitely need something to really prove that he can play other well rounded or multi-faceted in-depth roles to avoid being stereo type casted or stuck as the tougher than tough and take no bs guy for the rest of his career.There's only so many limited "don't f with me, man" expressions viewers can take.Otherwise, it will just be Vin Diesel, well, playing Vin Diesel...
What the film may also lack in story depth it makes up for in it's quick and fast paced action. The thrilling twist did keep me as a viewer interested as to who El Diablo (the new cartel druglord taking over a major pipeline) was. Early in the film I thought it was one character but was actually surprised and got a chuckle that it was someone else ! You'll never guess who it is until towards the end...Diesel's portrayal as Sean Vetter, a somewhat renegade DEA officer, trying to smoke out El Diablo for a personal vendetta does allow Diesel's acting abilities to show some vulnerbale and emotional moments without the man totally breaking down or hitting a melodramatic melting point...
The video and audio technical aspects, well, are your average to pretty good run of the mill stuff. Surround effects are effective for ricocheting bullets, cars exploding, and packed with rumbling bass for some pivotal scenes. The video transfer is clean and film-like with no harsh grain or color bleeding. Darks are dark to black and lights are light to bright...Clean picture, clean sound.
As a casual Saturday evening, stay-in-home flick, A Man Apart is worth viewing once, but maybe not twice.

In this action film Vin Diesel portrays an ex-gang member turned Los Angeles DEA undercover agent Sean Vetters. Upon successfully arresting and jailing the kingpin of a Mexicali drug cartel, Vetters finds himself the victim of the cartel's retribution. In a hit meant for him his wife Stacy is killed instead. Vetters' sense of rationality in the wake of his wife's death is lost. His moral bearings are buried along with her. In comes a new drug lord named Diablo who reestablishes control over the vast shipment of cocaine transported between Mexico and the U.S. The downfall of Diablo becomes the centerpiece of Vetters' existence as he seeks his own form of retribution. This film is full of shoot out scenes. Sometimes it's hard to keep track of who's the good guy and who isn't. Larenz Tate displays good chemistry is portraying Vetters' partner Demetrius Hicks. Vin Diesel is an excellent action hero plus I love the voice and the attitude. Nothing is new in the characterization of the drug cartel participants. If you don't mind hearing the "f" word used every two seconds, this is the movie for you.
