It's a lowkey fun film. Watch it if you want to kill time.

A l'époque où Vin Diesel n'était ni attaché au rôle de Riddick ni de Toretto, encore moins de Xander Cage, on pouvait le retrouver dans des thrillers de série à la Seagal. Un Homme à Part fait partie de ces films. Réalisé de manière efficace par F. Gary Gray, ce petit thriller assez musclé offre à Vin Diesel un rôle sur mesure, un flic qui a vu sa femme se fait dessouder par un cartel colombien et qui décide de se venger, quitte à dépasser les limites. Entre répliques réjouissantes et physique imposant, Vin Diesel y est absolument parfait, même sur les quelques incursions dans l'émotion. Il est entouré par un casting qui fait le boulot sans jamais vraiment briller, hormis Timothy Olyphant en bad guy fantasque. Un Homme à Part se savoure comme un bon Schwarzenegger, un bon Stallone ou un bon Statham : c'est divertissant, c'est plutôt bien foutu et spectaculaire. Que demander de plus?

I was aware that being an action movie with Vin Diesel "A Man Apart" could be a little bust, but that big, hell no! Terrible and uncoherent from beginning to end.

La estructura en esta película es todo un menjurge, interesante, pero incoherente en lo que quiere plantear.

La siento bastante desbalanceada, con un ritmo narrativo flojo, y bastante generica. Al menos, es entretenida de ver.

The best part of this movie is definitely the action, vin diesel does that well enough, he just cannot bring drama. Found it a little bit slow and entirely forgettable.

Sets up a good gritty tone and atmosphere, but is sadly weighed down by cliches and poorly-written dialogue

B-Grade production starting Vin diesel. Lacks the brawl based action he is associated with instead we get a thriller with focus on suspense and drama. The Direction and Cinematography spoils the ride quite a bit.

Vin Diesel in one of his typical actioneers I enjoy so much. A cop teams up with the former head of a drug cartel to avenge the death of the woman he loved in this action-drama. Sean Vetter (Vin Diesel) and Demetrius Hicks (Larenz Tate) are a pair of DEA agents who think they've made the bust of a lifetime when they capture 'Memo' Lucero (Geno Silva), a multi-millionaire drug lord who controlled most of the narcotics traffic along the border of Mexico and the United States. However, with Lucero behind bars, a new and decidedly more dangerous underworld kingpin rises to take his place, and Diablo (Timothy Olyphant), also known as Hollywood Jack Slayton, soon proves to be even more dangerous than Lucero when he orders his gunmen to assassinate Vetter. While Vetter escapes unharmed, his wife is killed, and Vetter is thrown deep into despair. Now Vetter is obsessed with bringing Diablo to justice, and he's willing to do anything to bring him down. It was a film I meant to watch a few years ago but drifted off of my radar...it was pretty damn good with old Vin at his best. Not an action classic but definately one for people who like the genre

"This film starts to: invigorate depression, to a dramatic sense, shortly after, the get go, till the ending."

**** 1/2

Sean Vetter (Vin Diesel) along with his cronies from his teenage gang year's realized that: they were not creating the problem, but they were not helping, to resolve the problem; they quit their gang lifestyle & become DEA agents. Together they are the most successful drug task force unit in the country; they do not look like cops, they do not act like cops, they do not even hang out with them for that matter. They have an edge that could only be obtained by coming up on the streets.

After years, of tracking him the unit finely brings down the cocaine kingpin of the west by the Mexico boarder; Memo Lucero (Geno Silva). Making this accomplishment is well received by the DEA & Sean's unit gets to take a well deserved break from field work. Their celebration is short lived; well Memo seats behind bars an ambitious Lieutenant in his organization Hollywood Jack decides to take charge by making a complete hostile takeover, but first he orders the assassination of Sean & his beautiful wife Stacy (Jacqueline Obardors) well they sleep. Sean awakes to find that he & his wife are under attack; both take bullets. Sean survives well Stacy is killed.

Out of the hospital Sean get's back into action; he knows that the order to hit him & his wife had to have come from the top. He has one thing on his mind: bring down the drug cartel & avenge the death of his wife. He & his unit will follow the pipeline from the bottom to find out who at the top had given the order to kill him & his wife. This is where this film starts to: invigorate depression, to a dramatic sense, shortly after, the get go, till the ending.

Timing is everything: to like, this movie, one has to be, in the mood, to watch, a depressing movie like this. It has all the elements of a thriller drama action movie from fight scenes to explosions to a climax thrilling ending. The theme of this movie has been covered a few times in Hollywood so to some it will be nothing new to see.
