The One

This latest Jet Li vehicle finds the martial arts master playing a dual role. He portrays a Los Angeles police officer who gets into a potentially catastrophic conflict with his evil alter ego from a parallel universe, who intends to kill the "good" Jet in order to become what he believes will be some kind of God. Delroy Lindo is in hot pursuit of the "bad" Jet. The sci-fi element is truly authentic, à la Stephen Hawking, but the real show are the martial art combat sequences that are indeed state of the art. Even better than those from "Matrix" or similar movies, the special effects will blow you away. They work a slo-mo style that is just superb. A must for fans of sci-fi and martial arts flicks. The sound track is heavy metal, which seems to clash with the action, but otherwise it is a great spectacle.
