  Action movies constructed around the pursuit of violent revenge will always be in fashion, as long as Hollywood has enough gunpowder, fake blood and durable tough-guys to burn. Consider "A Man Apart," starring Vin Diesel of "XXX," "The Fast and the Furious" and "Pitch Black." He's a camera-friendly hard-ass on the way up. His physical grace, his stop-you-in-your-tracks glare, and his way with a terse line served him well up to now. But "A Man Apart" is such a drag that Diesel could be doughy, stultifying Steven Seagal, and there would be little difference. The script is dull and circuitous; the fights and shoot-outs rehash those in better films; the dialogue is obtuse or trite. Diesel is Sean Vetter, a rugged, no-bull DEA agent who was recruited from a Southern California gang. (He's got street cred, bro.) He and his unit bust a drug kingpin in Mexico. Shortly thereafter, Sean's loving wife is killed in a home invasion. Quicker than you can say "Rest in pieces," the widowed super-cop is out to settle the score, pistols blazing. His partner (Larenz Tate) tries to keep Sean from losin' it, but there's no stopping the inevitable: viewer numbness.
