Movie Summary

Director:
F. Gary Gray
Released:
2003
Rating:
R
Vin Diesel ("Saving Private Ryan," "The Fast and the Furious") stars as a DEA agent hell-bent on vengeance after the head of a drug cartel murders his wife. With nothing left to lose, agent Sean Vetter, already notorious for his violent tactics, uses every means -- even an alliance with the former cartel boss he jailed -- as he edges dangerously close to the line between justice and lawlessness in his brutal quest for vengeance against a mysterious killer known only as El Diablo. Now, stalking the Tijuana nights accompanied by the glint off the barrel of his rifle, Vetter hunts -- A Man Apart. Also starring Larenz Tate ("Ray," "Crash") and Timothy Olyphant ("Live Free or Die Hard," TV's "Deadwood").

Metacritic Score

  • 70

    Variety Robert Koehler

    Diesel makes a violent bid to align himself with the Clint Eastwood-Charles Bronson-Steve McQueen tradition, but he lacks the charisma, emotional strength and humor to do so.

    Los Angeles Times Kenneth Turan

    Though it wasn't planned this way, it's an amusing exercise to view A Man Apart as an allegory for the war in Iraq.

  • 30

    The New York Times Dave Kehr

    A series of gun battles follow, none staged with quite enough verve or imagination to break through the pervasive torpor.
