"There is not one universe, but there are many, which is a multiverse. Supposing you are just one person, there are many other versions of you in the other universes, there are ways to travel, but only a police agency,MVA, can travel only for police procedures. Gabriel Yulaw (Jet Li)is a former MVA agent, who killed another version of himself in self-defense. It made the other versions of him stronger. When Yulaw found out about this, he became power-hungry killing the 122 other versions for two years. After killing Lawless (also played by Jet)and getting captured by his former partner Roedecker (Delroy Lindo) and a new MVA agent Funsch (Jason Statham) Yulaw managed to escape the prison and is trying to kill his last target, Gabe Law (also played by Jet) who is a police officer. He is also at Yulaw's strength. Roedecker and Funsch now have to arrest Yulaw before he can kill Gabe. There is a possibility that the universe could die or make Yulaw invinible. After encountering Yulaw for the first time, Gabe thought that it was his split personality, but it wasn't. Will Gabe be able to confront Yulaw before or after Yulaw ruins his life. The One is a martial-arts flick with strong sci-fi concepts. But the bottom line remains high-kicking action, and Jet Li delivers. Li also shows his acting ability in this film. He displays that he can do more than one personality. The One is one movie whose far-out concept works.
Jet Li must martial up the courage to fight with himself

"This is a multifaceted story of a multi-verse in which they even took the premise form the immoral. Turns out if you kill your other self in a parallel universe you get to split his chi with your otherness.
So now it is down to two. And the only person Gabe Law (Jet Li) can confide in is his better half T.K. Law (Carla Gugino). At first she hummers Gabe then when she is sure he is telling the truth it is a tad too late.
There is lots of action with kicking, shooting, and blowing things up. Both Gabs by this time are toughies and nothing can stop them. We find that it is impossible to not kibitz.
The question is in the end is there time enough for love?
