After poor test screenings, New Line had 15 Minutes (2001) director John Herzfeld come in and shoot some additional scenes - notably the ending and cemetery finale - to wrap things up. Also, dialog scenes were cut and some scenes also shortened to speed up the pace. This caused the film to miss several release dates. Regular Herzfeld composer J. Peter Robinson also worked on some new score to jazz things up. New Line also had to change the name from El Diablo due to a law suit from the game developer Blizzard. Potential titles included Push The Limits, Diablo (no El in front), Sean Vetter, Vetter and This Man's Dominion. A Man Apart was finally chosen as the studio felt it suited the theme of the film.

I know you don't like the police. Damn sure talkin' to a police in a attic. Back in the day, I couldn't stand the police, man. They used to fuck with us all the time, me and my homies, be rollin' down the street. They'd pull us over jackin' fools.

Saw A Man Apart yesterday. To be honest, I was a bit disappointed. Like director didn't knew what kind of film he really wanted to make, so he mixed something up. The film hadn't quite own identity. It was somewhere between serious drama, telling about terrible loss and tough revenge action. These two sides wasn't mixed very good. Action was bit try but the story had potential to grow something serious. It wasn't definitely the best work of F. Gary Gray. Based on he's previous works( The Negotiator, Friday and Italian Job also), I just know he is able do things better than this. Though Vin Diesel's performance was one of his bests. He did actually really good job (not perfect but good) building up a Sean Vetter's character. Film itself was messy and there was some holes but it,s worth to watch specially to Vin Diesel's fans because he made strong performance, that i was impressed.
