A Man Apart Review


OK
After muscling his way through films like The Fast and the Furious and XXX, Vin Diesel has quickly become the new poster boy for the action genre. Along with this new title, he has developed a cult following of obsessed Diesel fanatics who live to see him blow things up. However, those expecting A Man Apart to be a wild romp like XXX could be disappointed. While Man does have it's share of exploding cars and gun battles, the film is much more subdued than his previous works.

While he does sell his brokenheartedness, with the aid of some beautiful ocean-side sunsets in front of which he despondently holds his head in his hands, Diesel and Gray know that's not what the people pay to see -- so pass the ammo, baby! Several thunderous, chaotic, hard-to-follow shoot-outs are the picture's big set pieces.
