Overview

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 -- even if it means teaming up with Lucero.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
The screen's unlikeliest action hero, Vin Diesel, takes center stage in this slam-bang thriller, which gives the charismatic new star ample opportunities to demonstrate his considerable strengths as a leading man. After working undercover for seven years, streetwise DEA agents Sean Vetter (Diesel) and Demetrius Hicks (Larenz Tate) finally take down the head honcho of the notorious Baja Cartel. A mysterious new kingpin, nicknamed Diablo, makes the drug war personal by killing Vetter's wife, Stacy (NYPD Blue's Jacqueline Obradors), and Sean swears he'll get revenge -- even though it means going outside the law to do so. Despite his thuggish appearance, Diesel embodies many of the qualities that made the young Sylvester Stallone a star. A Man Apart is tailor-made for an actor of Diesel's range, being a standard-issue revenge yarn embellished with some fanciful touches à la Dirty Harry. Director F. Gary Gray (The Negotiator) starts the picture off with a bang, of which there are many more --progressively bigger and louder ones -- before justice prevails. Tate supplies strong support as Vetter's partner, and Obradors is so good as the wife that one wishes she had more screen time. But this is Diesel's show, and he struts his stuff in a big way, bulldozing his way across the screen with brio. His presence makes A Man Apart a film to have.
