If your last film sounded as if it were promoting porn and if it featured you parading about in a sheepskin pimp coat, where would you go from there? Straight into counseling? Perhaps to a bar? Not Vin Diesel.
If you're amused by watching Vin Diesel rough up bad guys in loud, frenetic, blood-soaked action thrillers, you'll be the first one in line. If you're not, no level of critical adulation could entice you.
Late in A Man Apart Vin Diesel lurches from the carnage he's inflicted on the bad guys, telling his partner, 'This isn't over.' Rarely have three words had such a devastatingly depressing effect on me.
