The DVD edition of The One is gorgeous and packed with extras. Picture quality is crisp and clean, and the colors are excellent. The viewer is offered the choice of widescreen presentation, preserving the theatrical aspect ratio of 2.40:1, or a modified full-screen view. Audio is available in English or French, but subtitling features a whopping five languages: English, French, Chinese, Korean, or Thai. Director commentary is fairly interesting, including comments on production choices, special effects, and the like. The commentators are director James Wong, production designer David Snyder, cinematographer Robert McLachlan, and editor James Coblentz. This means a great deal of attention to the technical side of the film, which is pretty interesting stuff. The behind-the-scenes features emphasize this aspect as well, although from different angles: "Jet Li Is the One" provides some general information (including the fact that this film was originally supposed to star The Rock); "Multiverses Create the One" emphasizes the special effects and wire work; and "About Face" goes into some detail as to how the filmmakers got Jet Li to fight himself. The audio on all of these is somewhat imbalanced, so at times it's hard to hear what people are saying; fortunately, this problem does not extend to the film. The scene selection navigation is a little confusing, but overall, the features and extras are nicely integrated into this package, with the option of turning the commentary on and off with only a few presses of the button.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars
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.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars
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.
