Critic Reviews for A Man Apart

All Critics (132) | Top Critics (35)

The script for this action vehicle is like something you'd find under the cushions of Steven Seagal's couch, but Diesel, to his credit, digs into his role as if it were Hamlet.

This is disappointingly routine stuff from Gray, but the movie does boast one disaster area of a shoot-out and a nifty denouement.

The film would be totally unwatchable without the very real charisma of Diesel.

Once thoughts of revenge fill the head of Diesel's Sean Vetter, the direction of the story unfortunately goes south.

Audience Reviews for A Man Apart

Vin Diesel trades in the fast cars for poor dramatic action. A Man Apart is a failed attempt for the famed actor to crossover in the drama genre. It's violent, over-dramatic and loose in story. 1/5

Vin Diesel gives a stunning and kinetic perfromance. It proves that he's more than a stellar action star. Larenz Tate is teriffic. A poweful and hard hitting urban crime drama. It fuells it's riveting story with explosive action and suspense. A stylish, exciting, thrilling and razor-sharp adreniline-fuelled thriller. It's explovsive and excellent. An emotionally gripping and exhilerating movie. Slickly crafted and well-developed by Director, F. Gary Gray. He knows how to bring out the best in his films with characters and story.
