The One Reviews
An OK movie. More Jet Li action, not much different from his other roles. The movie was a little confusing to me but nevertheless nothing really appealed too much to me. The special effects didn't look so special and the acting wasn't there either. This movie is for Jet Li fans. The last fight between the 2 Jet Li's was pretty good I gotta admit but that was it. Nice cast but not used to there full extent.
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 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 and getting captured by his former partner Roedecker and a new MVA agent Funsch, Yulaw managed to escape the prison and is trying to kill his last target, Gabe Law 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 invincible. 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?
Maybe if the movie had a better sense of humor it would be a better movie. Nifty special effects and a hardcore soundtrack don't help this movie. There are so many holes in this plot that I just feel bad for the cast. Jet Li does a decent enough job, and of course his fighting stuff looks cool, but it's not as much fun if I know that he is having CG help when he is a first class martial artist. A neat concept, but mainly just falls flat.
Jason Statham is fantastic as always, and is such a bad ass, I love this guy!. Delroy Lindo is good in his part! The soundtrack is pretty good in this movie. Most of the songs are popular rock and heavy metal tunes of the time. And I totally loved the ending, unrealistic as it might be.
