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 martial-arts flick that transcends its genre with surprisingly strong sci-fi concepts.

"The One" is pure pulp junk and Wong embraces it as such, rushing through the mundane details of establishing characters and defining motivation to leap into action...

If popcorn-picture auteur John Carpenter made martial arts flicks, they'd be just like "The One" -- an unabashedly cheesy, B-grade sci-fi amusement park ride.

The action is fun and ultraviolent, the story is satisfactorily ridiculous and the acting is nonexistent.

A blast of first-rate entertainment.

Delivers a fun hyper-action romp.

The pace and inventiveness -- the epilogue is surprisingly touching -- and the eye-popping moves of Jet Li make it easy to hang on and enjoy the ride.

I got a kick out of the old-fashioned stunt work sprinkled with "Matrix" like action and wire-work a la "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon."

The action scenes are amazing and the use of slow motion and other effects is pretty well utilized.

This flick packs a whallop, lasts little more than 85 minutes and doesn't pretend to be about anything else but kicking a lot of ass!
