A Man Apart Reviews

Laramie Movie Scope

The story collapses under the weight of its own contradictions near the end.

Creative Loafing

Like View from the Top, this one's been sitting on a studio shelf for quite some time, suggesting that Hollywood must presently be engaging in its own version of a yard sale.

| Original Score: 1.5/4

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

The celluloid is like a giant piece of Swiss cheese, sporadically leaving gaps here and there without the need to explain or justify them.

April 14, 2003

The force of the filmmaking has gravitas and conviction -- pay attention to anything that's going on, and first you wonder where the hell the mood came from, and then you feel used by it.

| Original Score: 2/4

Christopher Smith
Bangor Daily News (Maine)

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.

| Original Score: D+

James Rocchi

Vin Diesel doesn't have the horsepower to get this stalled mass of cliches going.

Movie Eye

Overall, A Man Apart is a carelessly clunky and protrusive production that feels as deep as a nostalgically naughty Starsky and Hutch rerun-only without the natural charm and genuine conviction.

Falls into the schizophrenic trap that so many films do. It really can't decide what it wants to be.

Tthis is an attempt at something grittier for Vin Diesel. But it's muddled by filmmakers unclear about their aims.

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.

| Original Score: 2/4

Ken Hanke
Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

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.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

It's not awful, but it's not worth missing an episode of 'American Idol,' 'Hangin' with Mr. Cooper' or the popular 'Operation Iraqi Freedom.'

Falls just shy of both Diesel and Gray's mark, which, presumably, was to afford a certain shade of respect to Diesel's usual knuckle-dragging theatre of the fist.

[I]t's well made, but we've seen all of this, so many times before.

... plays to the crowd and to fans of Diesel, but for everyone else looking for an engaging thriller about crime lords and revenge, at least it's better than 'Collateral Damage.'

Film Freak Central

Although Diesel's flexathon is certainly the wrong message in the wrong time, the only harm it can do is through the aggregate culmination of like-minded films.

Dustin Putman

A revenge tale that tries to act smarter than it really is, and ends up embarrassing itself in the process.
