1 star = abysmal; some books deserve to be forgotten
2 star = poor; a total waste of time
3 star = good; worth the effort
4 star = very good; what writing should be
5 star = fantastic; must own it and share it with othersSTORY: DEA agent is out to take revenge on the drug dealers that killed his wife.MY FEEDBACK:
1) Forget XXX or Fast & Furious, this is a much better Vin Diesle movie (Pitch Black is still his best though). Vin does some decent acting and his general charisma carry a large portion of the movie.2) Good attempt at developing the relationship of Vin's character with other characters in the movie3) Not a huge action flick but enough guns to keep this drama moving4) Some suspension of belief is needed in this movie5) Seemed the editing didn't explain a plot twist or two but cut things out leaving gaps in the story.OVERALL: We enjoyed the movie and didn't feel like we wasted out time with it."
One of Vin's Best

"I don't understand why critics are so hard on Vin, I think he has great range as an actor, personally, and he's the best action star of this generation. Sly and Arnold always gave the cheesey one-liners, and couldn't pull a tear outta me if they bit me on the ass. But "A Man Apart" really demonstrated Vin's acting abilities, and he can go far, in my opinion. "A Man Apart" was a pretty dramatic movie, moreso than expected. It had a lot of heart, and plenty of action, and some real comedic moments, which were well placed, considering the plot. I didn't hear any cheesy one-liners, which I was thankful for, cause, in my opinion, it destroyed Vin's blockbuster "XXX."
AMA was nice break from some of the other flops I've seen lately, and I was glad I spent the money to see it. The only downfall, no that I said that is this, the trailer gave away soo much, too much. You basically know the entire plot from the trailer, which was a mistake made by the production company's, and one reason why I don't have to tell you the story, you know it. But I strongly reccomend this movie, Vin fan's won't be disappointed."

"I just saw this movie and I loved it. It was a tear jerker. It shows that Vin can be be more than an action hero. This movie also shows that he has depth and that he can act in drama movies."
A Man Coming Apart

"Better than I expected, based on the mixed reviews I've read. Vin & Larenz were good, I was surprised they made such a believable & natural pair! & the story did have a couple of surprises (for me). Watch Diesel's expressive face convey the way Vetter is often on the verge of exploding from pain & anger, Vin does this even when he's not the focus of the action.
Vetter is a man overwhelmed by his wife's murder, & no one put him in check before he went completely haywire, even though they saw signs of trouble. I would like to have seen the guy referred for some therapy or at least have a real good cry, but that wouldn't make for much of an action movie.There were certainly holes in the story, & the 'happily married man phase' was a bit overdone. Diesel acted so smitten & the wife so sweet she had 'DEATH' written across her forehead! But it's all make believe anyway, and still worth seeing and listening to (good music). So Vin, where's the soundtrack?"
