OK action thriller
In my previous IMDb iteration, I was pretty tough on THE ONE, a sci-fi thriller about alternative universes and a man (Jet Li) killing off his counterparts across the "multiverse" in order to become a god. I referred to this as a wire-fu quickie and crapped all over Jet Li for his performance as the villain (he had been seen to much better effect as the villain of LETHAL WEAPON 4). I have watched THE ONE a couple of times since then, and I will amend my comments slightly to give credit to Li for pulling off dual roles. He is convincing both as good and bad guy. His English is pretty darned good, all things considered, and I gave him credit for this in my previous review. The idea of a multiverse, a pretty new concept at the time, is intriguing although nothing is done with it in THE ONE, which primarily consists of Good Li and Bad Li playing cat and mouse across a city, while Bad Li kills and/or maims a veritable army of cops. The ending is predictable as all get out, but don't let it stop you from enjoying the many eye popping fight sequences. The always-entertaining Delroy Lindo and Jason Statham are multiverse cops chasing down Bad Li. The plot is straight out of HIGHLANDER, and clearly THE ONE would not have been made were it not for THE MATRIX.
