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

Hasn't enough good dialogue here for one Yulaw, never mind two.

A sci-fi kung-fu mish-mash of dreck . . . The use of stand-ins is obvious and the resolution is ludicrous.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

All I know is, if there are really multiple parallel universes, I pity all the versions of me that have to watch all the versions of this movie.

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

una colección de huecos inexplicables en su guión.

April 24, 2002
Replicates the experience of viewing an arcade demo for the same length of time.

Morgan and Wong lose sight of what makes Li such an appealing star in the first place: his natural athletic ability.

The confused step-child of "Sliders" and Highlander.

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

Instead of thrilling audiences, The One disappoints.

It's as if Wong and Morgan didn't think beyond the pitch session. It becomes painful to watch how quickly the duo squanders the story's potential.

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

I like Jet, but...this particular "Version" of the idea deletes nearly all ripe tangents.

The cheapest and most nonsensical slice of quasi-Science Fiction silliness since Freejack.

"The One" is an expensive-looking martial arts-science fiction movie that delivers a lot less than you would expect from it.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

What little good that can be said about The One is easily summed up in this sentence: Jet Li fights himself.

Wong's efficiently creepy Final Destination was as much memento mori as teen disposal unit, but in The One the maze of death leads only to exhaustion.

I'm happy to report that Jet Li's fourth American film crosses the finish line as far and away the best of them.

A disappointing marriage of science fiction and action, with too much sci-fi nonsense and not nearly enough action.
