Neil, Goodwood. 15 October 2003

In Vin Diesel’s latest movie, A Man Apart, he plays the part of an undercover narcotics cop. After seven years he and his team manages to capture one of the biggest drug lords (Memo Lucero) in Mexico. From this initial successful operation things start to go wrong, as the power vacuum left by Memo Lucero’s capture is filled by a new ruthless drug lord, know only by the name of Diablo.

From here on you would expect the standard undercover cop fighting for survival against overwhelming odds, and for the most part you would be correct. Still director F. Gary Gray (The Negotiator and upcoming The Italian Job) manages to construct a slick but gritty buddy cop movie, with more than a few unexpected moments. A Man Apart plays like a mix between Traffic and Narc with bits of The Shield thrown in for good measure. The movie is pretty violent, even shockingly show, especially the scene in the waterfront where a drug buy goes horribly wrong. Vin Diesels beats a criminal to death, and this results in a shoot out very reminiscent of the one after the last bank robbery in Heat.

Diesel gives a very nuanced performance, and is not afraid to show equal bits of ruthlessness mixed in with his sensitive side. The supporting cast is also pretty good, especially Demetrius Hicks (Larenz Tate) who plays Diesel’s DEA partner.

All in all A Man Apart is a good cop drama, well worth the effort to go watch.
