The One: Directed by James Wong. With Jet Li, Carla Gugino, Delroy Lindo, Jason Statham. A rogue Multiverse agent goes on a manhunt for alternate versions of himself, getting stronger with each kill. Only the last version of himself, an LASD cop, can stop his crusade before he becomes “The One”.

“Jet Li and Jet Li star in this goofy sci-fi flick about a power-hungry sociopath Yulaw (Jet Li) who goes dimension-hopping on a killing spree focused on his alternate universe counterparts. As Yulaw finally comes to what I must assume is our universe to kill the last remaining version of himself – Gabriel Law – both his and his counterpartu0026#39;s strength, intelligence and agility have been increased to superhuman levels by the deaths (quickenings?) of previous counterparts. Predictably, the pace is furious and deadly. Many people are caught up in the violence of the ensuing battle, and , of course, since the honest, hard-working and altogether decent Gabe Law appears to be responsible for all of it, he becomes a wanted fugitive. Besides being pursued by this earthu0026#39;s police, both men are also sought by an inter-dimensional police force seeking to imprison Yulaw on a far-off prison planet.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eGabe Law is a likable character who works as a prison guard and has a loving wife. The few minutes of character development permitted by the furious pace of this film are what makes it work. And although the plot seems a bit like a pastiche of recent sci-fi clichés, at least the combination of clichés assembled for The One is original.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eRecommended for sci-fi action and martial arts fans.”
