2 1/2 stars.

Vin Diesel and Timothy Olyphant are two of my favorite actors. And they do not disappoint here. But the story is weak on substance, as are most of the revenge-based flicks out there. It's been done a million times, and each one seems to be worse than the last, as the studios continue to dumb-down movies to appeal to the low-brow DVD rental demographics. I watched it all, sad to say, waiting for it to get better, but it never did. The ending was especially anticlimactic. Nothing memorable or noteworthy in the entire movie.

I recommend passing on this one. Try "The Brave One" with Jodie Foster, if you're in the mood for a great revenge flick.

Sean Vetter (Vin Diesel) and Demetrius Hicks (Larenz Tate), who are ex-thugs, are members of the US DEA working on the California/Mexico border. After arresting a drug baron named Memo Lucero (Geno Silva), the mysterious "Diablo" steps in and organizes the assassination of Vetter, but his wife, Stacy (Jacqueline Obradors), is killed instead.

Looking for revenge, Vetter acts outside the law to punish his wife's murderers. To accomplish that, he asks Memo, who is now in prison, for help finding Diablo. With Hicks' help, he hunts every member of the cartel from the bottom to the top of the organization's hierarchy and finds that "Memo" is linked to the recent activities.

"Rating System:
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."
Vin Diesel at his best

"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."
