Action movies can be stupid, boneheaded, and absurdly impossible, but they should never be boring. That's hardly the only problem with Vin Diesel's newest vehicle, a busted old Firebird with too much primer on the fenders called "A Man Apart." It's also absurdly unlikely, mawkishly sentimental and almost incoherent at times. But who cares? The bottom line is that right in the middle of the movie's big gun battle, I found myself looking at my watch. Would I get out of this thing before the burger place closed?
