Movie Summary

James Wong
The One is an action film that stars Jet Li. Jet Li plays the character of Gabriel Yulaw, a police officer who meets an alternate universe version of himself and must fight him. Gabriel is walking around the city one night when he comes across a person that looks exactly like him. He quickly figures out that this person is actually him, but he came from a parallel universe and has intentions of killing Gabriel. He must fight the man in an epic battle that lasts for days. Soon the battle turns into a fight between good and evil, that gives Gabriel a brand new perception of reality and makes him look inside of himself to find the evil within. This movie is a fantastic portrayal of the fight between good and evil, along with having action packed scenes of martial arts fighting that will keep you riveted throughout the whole movie.


Metacritic Score

    The New York Times Stephen Holden

    So narratively garbled and its screenplay so underwritten that you have to strain to piece together the story.

    Los Angeles Times Jan Stuart

    Li's far too unthreatening a presence to cause much of a stir amid the din of hard rock music and the pall left by fight choreography that has had every last bit of life digitally ...

    Variety Robert Koehler

    The combo of cheesy effects and martial arts choreographer Cory Yuen's unimaginative staging results in something that's martial artless.
