this is so far the only movie that i think van diesel really got some potential being a real actor. he did well in this film and very convincing. the script is somewhat too loose and random. the camera did well, directing could be better. by viewing the deleted scenes, i was pleased that the editor/director did a better job by deleting those purposeless scenes. one of the firefights scenes is the 2nd best shooting scenes i've ever seen besides the 'heat'. not bad at all, 'casue i didn't fall asleep as when i watched segal's 'out for a kill', i indeed fall asleep during it. van diesel still has to work on his two dead fish eyes. he need put more energy into his focus of his eyes, then he would become even better.

This bluray disc version of this film is great. Great clarity on bright parts of the movie and darker scenes and is exact fit to the 16x9 plasma/lcd's with no bars on top or bottom. Sond is also highly superb.

A Man Apart

A 2009 Alliance Home Video blu-ray release

Video: 1080p, 1.78:1 aspect ratio (original aspect ratio is 2.39:1)
Audio: English 5.1 DTS HD-MA, English and French 5.1 dolby digital tracks

This movie surprised me. I was expecting a really cheesy action film, but it was actually better than that. Don't get me wrong, it's not a perfect movie but it's a good cop-revenge film. It was a very predictable movie though, so don't go into it thinking there's a mind-boggling thriller story to this one. Good performances in it too. I enjoyed this one for the most part. This is a definite re-watch for me. Very entertaining.

Picture quality: The picture quality of this release is a bit of a mixed bag.
First the bad... Black levels can be TOO strong in this blu-ray release. They over-power the image a little too much in some scenes making it hard to see the detail of certain objects, people, clothing, etc. The whole movie isn't like this, but a good amount of it is. There's a nice layer of film-grain in this movie, but sometimes it can get a bit heavy and a little distracting. The film print itself has dirt specs and some very small scratches that'll pop-up consistently; you'll definitely notice them, but thankfully they're not very distracting. Also, the original aspect ratio of this film was 2.39:1. However, Alliance has 'opened-up' the print to a 1.78:1 aspect ratio to fully fit your HDTV. Some people won't like this movie on Alliance's part, however I didn't mind it.
Now for the good news... Detail and clarity is exceptional for the majority of the movie. In close-up shots, detail can be phenomenal. You can see every hair on Vin Diesel's beard, every bead of sweat, facial textures, etc. very clearly.

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.

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.
MY FEEDBACK:
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.
