Critics say the stupidest things about movies. This movie was, by far, one of the best movies that Vin Diesel has made. Story was great, teh pace moved fast, tons of action, revenge throughout the movie, a classic for anyone! Great movie, highly recommended. A+++
This movie is gripping, heartbreaking, and awe-inspiring.Though not completely original it grabbed my interest from the start androad it until the end. Vin Diesel acts as Depressed vengeful cop SeanVetterwith beautiful conviction and I found myself sympathising with most of theemotions and thoughts displayed in this movie!!!
This is a very good action-packed, suspenseful, fast-moving revenge film with lots of anger, shooting, and deaths. Deep voice, muscular, capable, dangerous when riled, Vin Diesel is a DEA agent. He captures a drug boss; but then his wife is killed in a revenge shootout. Vin Diesel loses his cool and does things he shouldn't do, resulting in the death of three DEA agents. He is suspended from the DEA, but continues his efforts to find the people who murdered his wife, people who resumed the drug trafficking after Vin Diesel captured the boss. Although the film is titled "A Man Apart," he is not alone in his efforts to revenge his wife.
This review is from: A Man Apart (DVD) This was an action movie from the get go. Vin Disel is a tough DEA officer but is a loving person at home. After he and his partner arrest a drug lord, Vin's wife is killed in a gun battle by the drug lord's men who were after Vin. Vin gets tougher and go after them all. The end is well worth waiting for as justice prevails. This is a keeper to watch over and over.
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.
I enjoyed this great movie. I usually enjoy the movies that Vin Diesel stars in ( like xXx and the Fast and the Furious). All those movies were great and this is no exception either. 'A Man Apart' also has a storyline that has more heart than those other movies. The storyline is also more enjoyable and much deeper than before. Even if you didn't like the other movies Vin Diesel was in and just dismissed him as a strong bald guy who stars in heartless action movies, this is different from those. There is still action and stuff, but its much much deeper. Check out this great movie sometime soon and be sure not to miss it.
And the title of the comment says it all. Vin Diesel is in that part of hiscareer where he is given every kind of roles, just to check out on which onehe does better. Well, it surely isn't on this thriller attempt flick, justbecause it fails in just about every possible aspect. The good cop, sees hiswife die, and promisses to revenge her death against the bad guys who justhappen to be running a drug cartel. Well, you can't get more original thanthat! 15 minutes into the movie, when you start figuring everythingbeforehand when you're not supposed to, than that's a really bad sign. FGary Gray's direction ads absolutely nothing to the movie: it lacks emotion,depth and thrills. and Vin Diesel isn't really helping himself very much,because we liked him in those guilty pleasure kind of movies that were theFast and the Furious, merely because of the car chases. But if the panoramadoesn't change fast enough, than Steven Seagal and Chuck Norris know theyhave their inheritance assured.
Director F. Gary Gray (The Italian Job) is at the helm of this ludicrous mess which features overmuscled wanna be action hero Vin Diesel as a DEA Agent out for revenge. A Man Apart is pretty much a vehicle for Diesel and nothing more, it is allegedly supposed to demonstrate Diesel's acting range by trying to feature a large emotional scope, but the whole thing is a mess. Everything just seems so cliche and generic, action scenes and scenes where Diesel is trying to be "emotional" just have a "I've seen this before, and I've seen this done better" feel to it; and in the end, A Man Apart is pretty much another excuse for Diesel to flex his muscles and blow stuff up. I liked this guy better when he talked with an Austrian accent.
I liked the movie because it showed how someone who is in love willstop at nothing to find out who, what, when, where, and how.Personally, I feel that the movie is great because of who the producerschoose and how they portrayed their characters.This movie shows howfriends stay strong through think and thin. Plus, it shows how loveseems to prevail through and through to the end. I honestly feel thatthe movie was a great one. It also did not matter that the lead actorhad some muscle and is cute. If the producers decided to do anothermovie and use some of the same actors that it would as great as thisone is. In conclusion, I give it a 10 because I liked it a lot.
First of all, I have to say that this movie is definitivelyunderestimated. What is the movie about? Well, the plot is nothing new or special. Thetwo DEA agents Vetter and Hicks (Vin Diesel & Larenz Tate) arrest theleader of the Mexican drug syndicate. A new - and mysterious - oneappears and one of his first actions is to get rid of Diesel'scharacter. Instead of killing the agent the assassins shot his wife.Hungering for revenge Vetter does everything to find out who the newleader of the syndicate is. As I said. Nothing new. But does this simple idea make a movie bad? Notnecessarily and in this case the answer is: NO. Vin Diesel is neitherthe cool guy like in 'Pitch Black' and 'xXx' nor the funny guy like in'The Pacifier'. He is, let's say, real. His character makes mistakesand therefore presented human. This makes him plausible in his role -like all other characters as well. Due to that you get an authentic andrealistic movie. So, don't expect a firework of explosions like inother Vin-Diesel-movies. The key term here is: authenticity.
This movie isn't as bad as everyone says it is. Although it does fitinto the "formula" and is pretty much what you would from a Vin Dieselmovie, it's still a pretty good movie. The story itself was wellwritten and the acting isn't terrible. It still does step away fromDiesel's other movies, though, in that it is story driven and not justblowing stuff up left and right (though they still do that). Where hisother movies had action every step of the way to keep you interestedthis one has actual plot and emotion. If that's what you're looking forfrom Diesel then sit back and enjoy. Otherwise go rent XXX or Fast andthe Furious.
nice job but you could do better then that i like you to fine ass. real nice like that the way you did the show in the movie.bye, STEPHANIE
A Man Apart isn't exactly interesting, but it presented a different direction for the often times stone-faced Vin Diesal. Sure, even Stallone had Copland, but this film has little life to it, especially considering the over-idealisticlivelihood of Diesal's character. Sadly, this film never lived up to its own hype, and I'm glad it will most likely take a loss at the box office. Vin Diesal's star needs to roll around in the dirt a little while before people start begging him for franchises.
I think this movie brought out a character that we have never really seen Vin Diesel play before, an emotional role. Though the tough bad boy image is there as in the other rolls, this character gives him a chance to show that he can play more than a tough guy. He is a great actor, and the movie had a great storyline to it, to back him up. I give it an A!
A MAN APART is another fine Vin Diesel sleeper. Like KNOCKAROUND GUYS, A MAN APART showcases Diesel's intense, multilayered, talented and underrated acting skills. Vin plays himself playing Sean Vetter, former gang-banger turned DEA agent. In this tired plot, Vetter arrests cartel king Memo Lucera (Geno Silva)and sends him up for life. To fill the power vacuum at the top a mysterious figure, "Diablo" takes over Lucera's operation and kills Vetter's wife(Jacqueline Obradors). Vetter then becomes a vigilante, calling on his former street connections to hunt down Diablo.Although A MAN APART has a predictable storyline, Diesel makes of this movie more than the sum of its parts. The action sequences are dynamic (if a bit chaotic), but Vin is once again hypnotically believable onscreen, and totally in sync with his character.Vin Diesel is a much better actor than his second-tier resume of action-adventure films would lead you to think, and A MAN APART proves it.
This review is from: A Man Apart (DVD) A good example of someone who doesn't let an unjust act slip through the cracks. He's unstopable in his drive to succeed.
Vin Diesel trying to break into drama? What? Thats the reaction Ihadwhen I saw this, and lets just say, that comment stayed with me till theend.The plot is quite expectant of a Vin Diesel film: half-naked women,extreme violence, and get this: half-naked women(!). The story revolvesarearound Sean (Diesel) who's wife gets killed over his involvement ofcapturing the leader of a large drug cartel in Mexico. Must I go on? Ofcourse, there is revenge, and then there is some name calling and thenmorerevenge.I was quite suprised there was so much profanity in "A Man Apart."Yes,its a Rated R film, but a lot of the main audience is teenagers. I thinkwithout all the useage of the F-word, this might just sneak into a PG-13rating.This is been known to be Vin Diesel's vehicle that will get him intodrama. Is it? I didn't see any kind of drama at all. Diesel becameweighed down by script which is 100 years old (that is a euphinism), andsurrounded by actors who only speak with a one word vocabulary (that wordisusually F***). If this is his "breakthrough," then there is much to laughat. If this is was an attempt at drama, need there be violence,profanity,and nudity? This is still an audience film. Vin Diesel is just a puppetpropped on the screen to show his muscles and say smart things like: "Whatdid you say?" A complete joke. Anyone who isn't jaded by seeing extremeviolence and naked girls would know this. End of Story(2/10)
Revenge movies generally do well with American film audiences, if for no other reason than that they achieve something that other film genres cannot. This type of film speaks to our sense of justice, when someone we love has had some wrong done to them, whether they be hurt, robbed, or worse, be killed, we want to go and set things right. However, in reality we cannot always act on these feelings, as much as we may want to, which is where these movies come in. For one, we don't actually have to go through any real pain or suffering, we simply vicariously live through the characters on screen, and through the emotional connection that is made, if something should happen to one of them, it instantly stirs that feeling for justice to be done."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. Gary Gray (director of "The Negotiator" and "The Italian Job"), "A Man Apart" delivers a solid story of a broken man, that has lost the love of his life, and will stop at nothing until those responsible feel his wrath. Vin Diesel delivers possibly his best performance to date, showing a wide range of emotions that he hadn't needed to portray in his previous films "Pitch Black" or "The Fast and the Furious", though some doubted his acting ability, Vin proves here that he is more than just another action hero. The supporting cast is fairly strong, Larenz Tate is solid for the most part, as Vin's right-hand man, there are some weak spots in his performance, but they can be overlooked. The action is fast-paced and frantic, but serves to show the fractured state of Vetter's life without his wife. A problem many films of this genre can suffer from is an over-reliance on action, with not enough of a story to keep the audience engaged. "A Man Apart" succeeds in eluding this pitfall, with a story that continues to engage the audience emotionally, so that the vengeance doesn't seem pointless.If you enjoy revenge tales or are a fan of Vin Diesel, then this is definitely a movie you should see. Also, if you are one of the many nay-sayers regarding Vin Diesel's movies or his acting, then you should put your skepticism aside and give "A Man Apart" a try, I believe you will quickly see that Diesel definitely has what it takes to be more than just an average action star in Hollywood."A Man Apart" is rated R for violence, language, and brief nudity/sensuality.
Ok a few things out of the way first. I hated Fast And The Furious,andtheonly thing I looked less forward to than it's sequel is impotency. Ialsohated with the ever passionate waves of loath, XXX. I, however have beendefending Vin Deisel for a while now. While, he has chosen someridiculous,and quite mindless roles, I know he can act. I saw his short filmprojectback when Deisel was just a retired wrestling gimmick and a fuel type.Vinny stole the show in one of the most overlooked films of all time,"Boiler Room". Not to mention his few moments in "Pitch Black" and"SavingPrivate Ryan", were worthy of recognition. I know he's appeared in morefilms than that, but that is all I have seen.Now, that out of the way. I am a film fan. I like movies, but I amthekind of film goer that is hard to impress. I saw the previews to thisfilm,and was intriqued by the mere production quality. "Man Apart" lookedreallywell done. Then, came the tragedy. I actually went to see the film.Tragically, I think the Vin Deisel bashing should be over. If you didnotlike this film, that's your choice. I, however see a lot of xeroxmachinesin the world of IMDB have been running slower than others. Vin Deiselwasterrible in "Fast and Furious" and everyone's grandmother, grandfather,aunt, uncle, and sister bashed Vin's acting in that film; myselfincluded.The same thing happened for "XXX". Wait there is a point..........You morons who waited three damn movies to bash Vin Deisel's acting andjump on the bandwagon after even Justin Timberlake took his own jet awayfrom the trendy cliche scene, are not film critics. You are robots, andthegears are starting to rust. This is not to mention the fact that thisfilm,of all films is not the film to jump on the bandwagon with. If youcannotsee truely fine emotional acting in Vin Deisel's facial expressions andevenhis delivery, then I would hate to see the film in which you become acasting director. I could just imagine how many performers would be sowilling to show obscene over acting in the tradition of such performanceslike Timothy Daulton in "Wuthering Heights", or even worse Nicholas Cagein"Con-Air". It would be best if you freaks would simply "Put the bunnybackin the box" and eject your over played David Bowie album. There is nofuture for you people in the talent search department. Come back andplaywhen the next Ben Affleck movie comes out, we can then discuss horriblyover-hyped acting."A Man Apart" is the best action film that has been made in a very,verylong time. There are a few scenes that probably should have wound up onthecutting room floor. There were not any plastic cars with really coolpaintgraphics, nor was there a cameo from Ja Rule, or Ludachris, for thatmatter.I will also say that the ending is a little open ended for an actionflick,but that is what makes it a great movei experience. Vin Deisel wasamazing.His facial acting reminds me of early Richard Gere. And, no that's notmygerbel talking. Not much of a review, huh...Well I mainly wanted to bashthe jammed xerox machines that most of you painsy dancersare.Until next time nevermind the Ben Actless, I'm still Scarecrow from thecrops.7.5 out of 10 crows were torn apart, then a faux scarecrow came andxeroxedmy corn.
Action movies are a difficult genre, but nevertheless a genre that oldVinnie has mastered. This movie is a one in a kind masterpiece!!! Theway Mr Gray (r.e.s.p.e.c.t. DOG!!) channeled the full energy of theactors in the is movie, is remarkable. As an example, I would like tomention the scene in which Vin wakes up in the Hospital after losingStacey (Alice Amter for all you fans out there!). Here he shows suchpowerful emotions while interacting with his dog (Larenz Tate, the mostunderrated actor EVER!). He silences all movie critics with thisundeniable performance. I will never forget the way he shouts"Stacey!!" when finding out that Stacey has left the building. Enoughfocusing on the Hollywood hot-shots (cool movie by the way :-), let'stalk about El Diablo. First of all, check him out in Frogtown 2, thatwas his break-through moment, and I knew I would hear from him againwhen I saw it. And, yeah all you movie-lovers out there, FilmloverCheese was spot-on, again! Don't rent this movie, buy it! If you wannasee an action movie combined with powerful and realistic drama, go getit!
