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.

I was pleased to find this title on Blu-ray. The movie itself is about alternate realities - a total escapist fiction which is fun and mind-bending, a bit like Time Cop with some twists. Well acted and worth watching as a flick, THIS version (blu-ray) was the best I have seen of it (I have watched it multiple times, and this was by far the best watch). Recommended.

The One isn't intended to be Oscar material, but it's an enjoyable martial arts film with an intriguing story and sprinklings of science fiction. I'm not sure this is a fair comparison, but I think of The One a bit like Demolition Man - a bit cheesy and over the top in all the right ways, and very enjoyable if you're not put off by that sort of thing.

Jet Li plays two versions of the same character - one evil, one good. The story's premise is that life essence is shared between every parallel version of an individual across 125 parallel universes - and killing one of those 125 redistributes his life force amongst the remaining individuals. The evil Yulaw, with the knowledge of how to hop between realities, has succeeded in killing all but one parallel version of himself - Gabe Law. Gabe is unaware of the existence of parallel universes, until confronted and nearly killed by Yulaw.

Jet Li performs well in both of the roles, as the hardened criminal Yulaw and the likeable police officer Gabe. Several of the supporting roles are well acted, including Gabe's cop buddies and wife TK. Other roles, such as the gritty multi-verse cops played by Jason Statham and Delroy Lindo, are a bit overacted and cheesy.

With the power of 125 individuals split between the two of them, both Yulaw and Gabe are capable of superhuman feats of strength and speed. This gives the film the liberty to take the martial arts further than typical movies in the genre, leading to some truly jaw-dropping bad-ass action scenes.

Great Movie! I just recently picked up the Blu-Ray after thinking about this movie and how long it had been since I had watched it. It's my favorite Jet Li movie. It gets my blood flowing like no other movie. Great action and the final scene is amazing!

There is not one universe, but there are many, which is a multiverse. Supposing you are just one person, there are many other versions of you in the other universes, there are ways to travel, but only a police agency,MVA, can travel only for police procedures. Gabriel Yulaw (Jet Li)is a former MVA agent, who killed another version of himself in self-defense. It made the other versions of him stronger. When Yulaw found out about this, he became power-hungry killing the 122 other versions for two years. After killing Lawless (also played by Jet)and getting captured by his former partner Roedecker (Delroy Lindo) and a new MVA agent Funsch (Jason Statham) Yulaw managed to escape the prison and is trying to kill his last target, Gabe Law (also played by Jet) who is a police officer. He is also at Yulaw's strength. Roedecker and Funsch now have to arrest Yulaw before he can kill Gabe. There is a possibility that the universe could die or make Yulaw invinible. After encountering Yulaw for the first time, Gabe thought that it was his split personality, but it wasn't. Will Gabe be able to confront Yulaw before or after Yulaw ruins his life. The One is a martial-arts flick with strong sci-fi concepts. But the bottom line remains high-kicking action, and Jet Li delivers. Li also shows his acting ability in this film. He displays that he can do more than one personality. The One is one movie whose far-out concept works.

Very imaginative. There are a lot of little pieces of detail to enjoy. People who are into martial arts will enjoy the fact that the final confrontation is between hard style and soft style. A very fun movie if you are more the type of person who wants to stretch your imagination, versus the type who wants to refuse imagination in favor of realism.

The day someone thought up the idea of a movie where Jet Li has to fight Jet Li to become the best Jet Li was the day that decided all other films had nothing on Jet Li. Jet Li is awesome in this movie, and so is Jet Li. You see the plot is basically this: There's multiple dimensions, multiple times, multiple existences, there's a world where Jet Li is a janitor, or Jet Li is a movie star, or Jet Li is just Jet Li except ten minutes late for everything. Well one bad ass dimension jumping Jet Li says in highlander fashion, "there can only be one Jet Li!" So in a masochistic attempt to become the most he can be, he starts killing off other versions of himself and taking their powers.

Spoiler Alert, there's even a twist where Jet Li gets confused for the other Jet Li and the two beast mode Jet Li's have to KILL EACH OTHER TO THE DEATH!

BEST MOVIE EVER...get it on bluray, because everyone in the world owns a PlayStation and those are like free bluray players.
