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.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The script for this action vehicle is like something you'd find under the cushions of Steven Seagal's couch, but Diesel, to his credit, digs into his role as if it were Hamlet."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"Once thoughts of revenge fill the head of Diesel's Sean Vetter, the direction of the story unfortunately goes south."
‑ Robert Koehler, Variety
"Pretentious, incompetent, dumb explosion movie."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"It's as if this is a rough cut and [Vin] Diesel didn't show up for the reshoots."
‑ Greg Maki, Star-Democrat (Easton, MD)
"O roteiro cheio de furos e a fraca atuação de Vin Diesel são apenas alguns dos defeitos deste filme monótono e repleto de clichês."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"This is disappointingly routine stuff from Gray, but the movie does boast one disaster area of a shoot-out and a nifty denouement."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"[I]t's well made, but we've seen all of this, so many times before."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"You know what you're getting: it's a Vin Vin situation."
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile
"Vin Diesel has to make a choice whether he's going to be an actor or a cookie cutter action star."
‑ Daniel M. Kimmel, Worcester Telegram & Gazette
"This is a revenge thriller that for long stretches forgets about the revenge and, more importantly, the thrills."
‑ Nick Rogers, State Journal-Register (Springfield, IL)
"The film would be totally unwatchable without the very real charisma of Diesel."
‑ Jami Bernard, New York Daily News
"It's all fast and furious up to its draggy finale, and yes, it could spark a sequel. Prepare yourself for coming dread in 18 months: A Man Together."
‑ Mike Clark, USA Today
"Go see The French Connection instead."
‑ Alan Morrison, Empire Magazine
"A Man Apart is grim, lifeless and, worst of all, as boring as Steven Seagal talking about Buddhism."
‑ Josh Bell, Las Vegas Weekly
"Oh, the mediocrity."
‑ Matt Easterbrook, Matt's Movie Reviews
