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.

Remember that cop who took down the big man? We took care of his stupid bitch wife.
So you took care of his stupid bitch wife?
Yeah. Any bitch who marries a cop has got to be stupid. The keys are in the car. Take care.
You killed my wife, you motherfucker?

Maybe it's too harsh to call 'A Man Apart' a downright bad movie. But the truth is, the movie hasn't got a single thread of originality, great acting or a decent story to provide.
Sean Vetter (Vin Diesel) is a streetwise, tough ass cop who's hunting down one of the biggest Mexican druglords, played by Geno Silva. When the drug-syndicat in their turn try to kill Vetter, they mistakenly shoot his wife. As a result, Vetter is set out for justice and revenge.
Leave it to Vin Diesel to do the rough part, but his emotional role is completely snowed under. He's no Charles Bronson, that's for sure. Add the dubious and stereotypical bad guys and tough cops, and you got yourself a barely OK revenge flick.
For the people who aren't fan of Diesel or of the tough cop driven over the hill kinda films, I would advise against watching this rather mediocre flick.
