Man Apart, A
Source: Catholic News Service
Testosterone-driven crime drama about a Los Angeles DEA agent (Vin Diesel) set on avenging his wife's murder by taking down the powerful Mexican drug cartel responsible for her death. Directed by F. Gary Gray, who cut his teeth in the content-thin world of music videos, the contrived narrative unfortunately follows the all-too-common recipe of: two parts graphic violence, two parts stylish visuals, with dollops of biceps and bare breasts and not more than a pinch of plot thrown in for good measure -- then mix and let sit as the body count rises. Excessive graphic violence, partial nudity, sexually explicit dancing and incessant rough language and profanities. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O -- morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
