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

Knockaround Guys (also from New Line Cinema) and A Man Apart were shelved for a year after the success of Vin Diesels previous movies The Fast and Furious and Triple X. New Line Cinema felt both movies would be more successful financially with a bigger name action star attached. See more »

Goofs

Vetter's Dodge truck clearly blocks Jack's Porsche preventing him from leaving, although later in the scene it is backed up giving plenty of room for Jack to leave. See more »

It's Narc meets XXX
9 September 2003 | by pingu-1See all my reviews

This movie is alright for a gritty action film because it reminds me of the grittiness of Narc with the action sequences of XXX. The acting of Vin Diesel as a DEA agent is going out for revenge after his wife was murdered is good and alright and the acting Larenz Tate as his partner is alright as well.

Overall, I find this movie a good gritty action flick to entertain yourself any time.
