The One

The One
i0 sets a martial arts milestone by pitting action star Jet Li against his greatest enemy:
i himself
i0 . 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 traveling 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
i X-Files
i0 alumnus Glen Morgan) injects clever humor into the
i Matrix
i0 -derivative premise. Carla Gugino is wasted as the "good" Li's obligatory love interest, but
i The One
i0 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.
