Vin Diesel stars as a DEA agent hell-bent on vengeance after the head of a drug cartel murders his wife. With nothing left to lose, agent Sean Vetter, already notorious for his violent tactics, uses every means -- even an alliance with the former cartel boss he jailed -- as he edges dangerously close to the line between justice and lawlessness in his brutal quest for vengeance against a mysterious killer known only as El Diablo. Now, stalking the Tijuana nights accompanied by the glint off the barrel of his rifle, Vetter hunts -- A Man Apart. Also starring Larenz Tate and Timothy.

The film would be totally unwatchable without the very real charisma of Diesel.

The plot is nonsensical; the action is laughable.

Pretentious, incompetent, dumb explosion movie.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie is very, very violent, with a lot of firepower and many characters killed, including a woman and child. Policemen violate the civil rights of suspects, including beating them. Characters drink, smoke, and deal in drugs. They use very strong language, and a child's use of a swear word is supposed to be humorous. When a character tries to insult Sean by suggesting he is gay for turning down a lap dance, Sean gets infuriated. Black and white characters are deeply loyal to each other. Most of the drug dealers and criminals are black or Latino.
