A Man Apart is grim, lifeless and, worst of all, as boring as Steven Seagal talking about Buddhism.

Try remaking the classic drugs-and-cops thriller 'The French Connection' without the style, without the electric chase scenes or the witty cat-and-mouse game. Without the French. Without Gene Hackman. What you'd get might look like 'A Man Apart.'
| Original Score: 1/5

While A Man Apart is effectively paced and nicely choreographed, the fundamental letdown of the ending results in a mild sense of dissatisfaction.

This is a dumb guy with nothing to lose explosion movie, which is forgiveable, but it is a pretentious, manipulative, and incompetent dumb explosion movie, which is not.

This is a movie that should have starred one of the forgotten Baldwins and premiered at the bottom of a discount bin.

It's a good thing director F. Gary Gray signed Diesel, the film's one marketable star. Otherwise, this mess would have gone direct-to-video.

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

Two mediocre action scenes spring up to help alleviate the tedium. All they do is remind us how generic and tiresome the non-action bits are.

Gray directs with a determination that style will win out over substance. It doesn't, but the energy he brings to the venture makes a pedestrian movie look far sharper than it deserves.

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

A Man Apart is all about star power, but, as a star, Vin Diesel has no power.

For the actor's die hard fans only.

Whatever appeal Diesel normally has is watered down in this flavorless cop film that refuses to stop until it has checked off every cliché on the list.

A disappointment for Vin Diesel fans. Nothing fresh happens.

Action-packed but slower than a simmering chook, "Dominion" takes what reads like the latest Steven Seagal movie and marries it with heart pounding music and lots of Diesel-like commotion to have an audience feel they're' actually watching something a lot

Diesel, Larenz Tate as his partner, and Jacqueline Obradors as his doomed wife are the only things worth watching in this dreary retread from Steven Seagal-land.
