    Synopsis


    The One
    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. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

      What if there was a killer traveling through parallel worlds...and he looked just like you? This movie postulates what if there is more than one universe. And that all of these universes are held together by one single stream of energy and that energy is equally distributed to every living being in each universe and if one of these beings die, that energy is reallocated equally to each other surviving member. And with each allocation, a person becomes stronger. Now one universe has master the ability of crossing into another universe, and a man named Shulaw who believes that if he can kill all of his counterparts, he will become invincible, but there are those who believe that it might have detrimental effects, so try and stop him. Unfortunately, he just has one more person to kill, Gabe Law, but the officers follow Shulaw but Shulaw has committed some crimes and Gabe is accused and is wanted. But Gabe discovers that he has changed and only wants to kill Shulaw not realizing what could happen. Overall a great dvd to add to any collection and a must have for the hardcore physics geeks.

      This was a great sci-fi/ action movie! (Especially, if you like physics.) My wife and I loved it! We're huge fans of Jet Li and Jason Statham. The plot for this film is very unique. The special effects were great, the acting was great, and it had a great ending. One of a kind movie. I highly recommend it! Also, with these two actors is the movie War, which was really good.

      one of the few 7.1 HD-Master movies out there!

      It should be noted that while this is not the best action flick out there, those wanting to demonstrate the full potential of a 7.1 surround system could do lots worse. The movie is watchable due to the high quality fight scenes and decent acting for this genre.
