The One sets a martial arts milestone by pitting action star Jet Li against his greatest enemy: himself. This sci-fi thriller establishes a "multiverse" consisting of countless parallel universes, each populated by variants of every individual. Li plays a renegade from the Multiverse Agency, illegally travelling through "quantum tunnels" to eliminate all versions of himself until only two remain, each sharing the cumulative strength of their "parallel universe versions". This mumbo jumbo inspires a variety of dazzling special effects, and director James Wong (with cowriter and fellow X-Files alumnus Glen Morgan) injects clever humour into the Matrix-derived premise. Carla Gugino is wasted as the "good" Li's obligatory love interest, but The One will appeal to action fans with its fast-paced pursuit between the evil Li and two agents (Delroy Lindo, Jason Statham) assigned to stop his trans-universal killing spree. It's a one-gimmick movie, best enjoyed with your brain in neutral. --Jeff Shannon

On the DVD: The One, as with all martial arts films, needs near-perfect picture quality for full enjoyment; luckily the film's 2.35:1 anamorphic transfer is spot on with no graininess or washed-out colours. The Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack allows you to hear every punch that Li throws. As well as a scene-by-scene commentary from the director and crew, there are extras galore, including a 15-minute behind-the-scenes featurette, "Jet Li is The One"; "About Face", a short feature about creating the fight scene between the two Jet Lis; and the "Multiverses Create The One", which has more about Li's training for the movie. There's also a selection of trailers and filmographies. --Kristen Bowditch END

Product Description

In a stunning dual role, international action star Jet Li portrays Gabriel Yulaw, a police officer confronted with a sinister form of himself escaped from an advanced, parallel universe and intent onkilling Gabriel. His alter ego's hunt culminates in a fateful battle between good and evil that changes Gabriel's perception of reality and forces him to examine the evil hidden within himself. The One features riveting martial arts and innovative special effects.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Fighting is incredible! 11 Nov 2002
By Rosslock VINE VOICE
Forget the story. Its only there to set the scene for some of the most incredible and amazing fight scenes I have ever seen! Jet Li is amazing, and especially the fight at the end where he fights himself is truly the work of a martial arts film phenomenon!
Special effects are pretty cool too, especially, again, when he fights himself. Its so cleverly edited I dare you to spot when they use the double (as I'm sure they must have done even though I couldn't spot it!).

4.0 out of 5 stars Wicked! 13 Oct 2003
No doubt about it, martial arts at it's best here people. Jet Li plays a fine part. The effects included are amazing to say the least, many of them see jet fight himself!!! Don't understand me huh? Don't worry about it, you'll understand if you see the film, even if the story is a little 'brain racking'. Action fans-a must. Jet li fans-definetely. Martial arts fans-Certainly. People in search of something light-sorry but no. The storyline is good but confusing. Overall though, a film worth getting and I'm sure you'll love it-Action/jet li/martial arts or even random fans. ENJOY!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars if not better than the matrix! 30 April 2003
By A Customer
This is a must see movie - if you liked The Matrix, you'll love The One. Jet Li's acting is pretty good, but the fight sequences are even better - every one of them, they get better as the movie goes on. The acting from Stratham and Lindo is impressive - Lindo's is better thatn it was in Gone In 60 Seconds, and if Stratham's acting is anything like it is in The One, than I am looking foward to The Transporter. The Soundtrack to the film is outstanding, and fits the film perfectly. So if you like action/sci - fi movies, this a definite must see.Top quality filming at it's best.

By Priyan Meewella VINE VOICE
The One is a fusion of Matrix-esque stylish mind-bending sci-fi thriller with the more tradition kung-fu action that we expect from Jet Li. While it's action is high-octane and often looks stunning, the interdimensional plotline seems a little "done before", although this film does offer a new twist...
Li plays both the villain and hero of The One. The power-hungry Yulaw is killing off his 124 alter-egos in other dimensions, one by one, absorbing their life essence in order to become "The One". Having killed off 123, only Gabriel Law (of our dimension) remains to prevent him becoming a supreme being. He too shares in Yulaw's increased strength, dexterity, speed and mental capacity, and trained as a cop, a showdown is imminent. Yulaw is also being chased by two multiverse agents [Delroy Lindo, Jason Statham] who track and follow him through wormholes, but now cannot risk killing him as the consequences of Gabriel becoming "The One" are just as unpredictably dangerous.
The plot is riddled with unexplained elements, such as just why there are only 124 different universes. Indeed all the convoluted sci-fi theory has to be discussed between Lindo and Statham, due to Li's typically wooden delivery of his lines. Nonetheless, the sci-fi element is embellished with decent dimension-hopping special effects to cover any problems, and the story is generally coherent.
The acting and dialogue is largely forgettable. Li's English and acting abilities have never been terribly strong, but he does provide a charismatic performance as Yulaw and a sympathetic one as the rather confused Gabriel.

5.0 out of 5 stars The One 23 April 2009
This dvd is one I purchased as I am a fan of Jason Statham, who appears in this film, I found after watching that I am now also a fan of Jet Li. Excellent film with a very good plot running through it, twists and turns in the direction of the film make it thrilling viewing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wicked action,but bit too unrealistic 8 July 2002
From renting this movie, i thought i was pretty cool as with most of the Jet Lee movies are. With a mixture of tastes from the Matric film i.e. the dodging of bullets was pretty cool. But it was kinda unrealistic when the evil jet lee picked up the two police cycles (one in each hand) to kill the cop.Was a bit over the top.
Though I do think its a film worth renting/buying,its full of state of the art martial arts action,one jet lee in the film is good enough, two jet lee's fighting eachother makes it totally out of the world.
The film itself was slightly a bit too short to be honest, I still need to rent the other movies i.e. Kiss of the Dragon. This movie would be excellent if they had added the x-ray vision effects like they had with Romeo Must Die.
All i can say that if your a jet lee fan, this film is a must to prove that you are a fan of Jet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jet Li vs Jet Li for the multiverse championship 12 Oct 2003
What else could a guy ask for really? Not only do you have Jet Li doing his martial arts thing, which he does better than anyone else working in movies today, but he finally faces a worthy opponent (himself); then there's the gorgeous Carla Gugino, who has long been one of my favorite actresses; throw in a visionary, science fiction storyline, all kinds of explosions, some pretty darn impressive CGI, and you've got yourself a movie I will gladly pay to watch. But it gets better. The story comes from the minds of X-Files legends Glen Morgan and James Wong, with Wong directing and Morgan serving as co-producer of the story they co-wrote. Best of all, though, we get to see Jet Li portray a bad guy, and that is something you just don't want to miss.
Jet Li plays both of the characters at the heart of this story. The universe of The One is not even a universe, it's a multiverse, with versions of each person existing simultaneously in each universe; all these different versions of "you" are connected somehow, and the power vacuum left by the death of one "you" is not lost but is shared equally among all of the other versions of "you." Travel between the universes is possible through wormholes, and such travel is strictly policed. When one agent discovers that he can become more powerful by killing one of his counterparts elsewhere, he becomes a renegade who knocks off 123 versions of himself to become almost all-powerful. Lawless (the bad Jet Li) makes a spectacular escape from the universe cops and comes after the one remaining version of himself out there, Gabe Law (the good Jet Li). Gabe has naturally been gaining in power and strength himself all this time, and this fact plus his martial arts background makes Gabe a force to be reckoned with.
