Trivia:
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.See more »
Goofs:
Crew or equipment visible: As Sean starts up the stairs to the 2nd floor of the old cantina towards the end of the film, you can see a crew member moving a light reflector in a mirror on the left side of the frame. This is fully visible in the widescreen print, but appears only as a moving light in the full screen print.See more »

Pretty good, 1 October 2003
Author: movieman_kev from United States

Vin Diesel is MUCH better in this drama/action film then he was in his last action film, "XXX". His performance as a broken man who just lost his wife to drug dealer, & his violent crusade against said criminals, while not original in the least, does captivate you. As far as action movies go, this one can hang with the better of them. The action doesn't mix too well with the drama though...

My Grade: B-

Eye Candy: 2 topless women, 1 erotic dancer (Former Man Show Juggy, Paula Harrison) in see-through cloth

Extras: 7 Deleted Scenes (the first having 1 more topless chick, the 7th being an extended version of the aforementioned Juggy's dance) ; Trailers for (of all things)Run, Ronnie, Run & Highwaymen
