A joyless affair -- neck-snapping violence, endless blather trying to explain the 'science' behind what is happening and guns, guns and more guns.

Offers brainless high-tech action without interesting dialogue, characters, motivation or texture.

Bad action, worse drama, and excruciating science fiction.

Instead of thrilling audiences, The One disappoints.

Coming so swiftly on the heels of Li's rousing Kiss of the Dragon, One is a disappointing step backward for the martial arts star into lackluster genre gimmickry.

For a while, it seemed Jet Li could be the next Mel Gibson, but instead, he's becoming the next Jean-Claude Van Damme.

Too serious about itself and its silly concept, and it offers nothing beyond the fight sequences we've seen before.

A chaotic kung fu, sci-fi, rama-lama-dingdong on themes handled more originally by The Matrix.

It's the kind of movie ... where the hero is cheered not for the grace of his moves but for the number of rounds of ammo he can spray and the punches he can land.

You should know you're in trouble when you steal ideas from Highlander.

Eighty minutes of dreck for seven snappy minutes of Jet Li going mano-a-mano with himself? I want more.

Jet Li may be an original, but little in "The One" is.

Li kicks a good amount of ass in the film, but he's certainly no Oscar contender.

Bullets fly, lights flash, action occurs, time goes by, but nothing actually happens.

Fans of Li's Hong Kong films may just be embarrassed; how can you mount a defense for an actor this bad in two roles?

Even by the grunting and grimacing standards of comic-book action films, the performances in The One are undernourished.
