Storyline

Sean Vetter and Demetrius Hicks are members of the DEA who are fighting an ongoing drug war on the California/Mexico border, they are most successful at it because of their edge of growing up on the street and being thugs converted to cops. The DEA busts one of the major players by the name of "Memo" Lucero and imprison him in the United States but then a major player named Diablo then takes over the business and now he is now the major player targeted by Vetter and his team. But when Vetter's wife is killed in a botched hit organized by Diablo, he seeks revenge against those responsible and in the process has to seek help from the imprisoned Lucero in order to catch Diablo. But in the process, Vetter and Hicks have to fight their way up the chain to get to Diablo but it's easier said than done when all Vetter can focus on is revenge... Written by Anonymous

Trivia

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 »

a film apart
19 December 2007 | by (Estonia) – See all my reviews

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.
