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 »
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.

Concerning the action, starts off fresh but by the end is just getting repetitive!!!
A Man Apart is nothing special but after the first 15 minutes I didn't think I'd be saying that in my comment. It starts off really well, exciting, good characters and it was moving along nice and quickly. While the good characters and the moving along kept up throughout the movie, the most important thing didn't - the excitement. The action sequences just became like Vin Diesel's acting voice - exactly the same the whole movie. The director tried his best to vary it (bombs, choking .etc) but these things never seemed to have any effect, for what reason I don't know. Also the storyline was unbelievably predictable.
There are a lot of action movie out there, a lot - you're not going to find anything new in this one.
