The OneDirector: James Wong
Former X-Files writer James Wong makes his sophomore feature as a director at the helm of this science fiction thriller that's reminiscent of Timecop (1994). In the near future, a technology called "quantum tunneling" allows human beings to travel between parallel universes. The abuse of this ability by criminal elements has led to the formation of the Multi-Verse Authorities or "MVA," an agency of quantum traveling cops who apprehend violators of inter-dimensional laws. The MVA faces its greatest crisis when a former agent named Gabriel Yulaw (Jet Li) goes renegade, traveling between one universe and the next, murdering his own parallel selves and gaining enormous power with each slaying. It is believed that when Yulaw has become "the one," the only version of himself to exist, he will be omnipotent, but the final Gabriel Yulaw exists in our plane of existence (the "magna universe") and is also becoming stronger, though he doesn't understand why. Hot on the evil Yulaw's trail are his former partner Harry Roedecker (Delroy Lindo) and Harry's new colleague Evan Funsch (Jason Statham). Created with Wong's longtime writing and producing partner Glen Morgan, The One (2001) co-stars Carla Gugino.

This movie was by far the coolest I've seen in a long time. The effects were so cool, and the story line keep you interested. True, you can't miss minutes at a time and get the overall thrust of the movie. I can sum it up to three things: Great Director, Great actors, and Great Soundtrack.
Ok, I admit it. I did kind of like this movie. Fighting was great and all that, but...come on! It doesn't really...make sense. This guy kills off himself in other dimensions so he can become a god? What? They could take the time to explain SOMEthings to us, but i can't blame them for not. It's hard to explain dimension travelling when your...fighting yourself?
this film is good because of the awesome special affect, great story line wot more can say just brilliant
I love Jet Li, but I agree with that other person, nothing about this movie made sense. I didn't get the plot at all, if there was one. BUT, if you want to turn off your brain & watch Jet Li kick butt, this will do for you!
This is by far Jet Li's most exhilarating, exciting and thoroughly enertaining title to date. State of the art ''face cloning'' features aid in the film's climax, the inevitable Jet v Jet end scene. The film was made to be an action packed, martial arts movie with enthralling special effects. The only complaints to be made about this film include the rather uninspiring script and a certain member of the cast. Jason Stratham's stupid facial expressions must, for some reason, aid in the pronunciation of words in his poor american accent. An incredible must-see action movie with the Fantastic Jet Li.
