The scene where Sean beats the dealer to death was cut by seven seconds. The original scene featured the dealer spitting out teeth and bloody pieces from his cheek. The scene was cut in order to get the R rating and not NC-17. See more »

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.
