The One
The One sets a martial arts milestone by pitting action star Jet Li against his greatest enemy: himself. This sci-fi thriller establishes a "multiverse" consisting of countless parallel universes, each populated by variants of every individual. Li plays a renegade from the Multiverse Agency, illegally traveling through "quantum tunnels" to eliminate all versions of himself until only two remain, each sharing the cumulative strength of their "parallel universe versions." This mumbo-jumbo inspires a variety of dazzling special effects, and director James Wong (with cowriter and fellow X-Files alumnus Glen Morgan) injects clever humor into the Matrix-derivative premise. Carla Gugino is wasted as the "good" Li's obligatory love interest, but The One will appeal to action fans with its fast-paced pursuit between the evil Li and two agents (Delroy Lindo, Jason Statham) assigned to stop his trans-universal killing spree. It's a one-gimmick movie, best enjoyed with your brain in neutral. --Jeff Shannon

The 6th Day
For a movie about cloning, it's only appropriate that The 6th Day, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, is instilled with a strong sense of déjà vu, namely from Arnold's previous "Who am I?" outing, Total Recall. In that movie, Arnold is a normal Joe who discovers that his entire reality has been co-opted by an evil conspiracy, and has to take his life back by force. The same premise applies here for Roger Spottiswoode's clever if overlong sci-fi thriller--Arnold thinks he's a regular guy leading a regular life, until a twist of fate puts him on the lam from a vast conspiracy that's replaced him with a clone. While he's trying to evade the evil genetics corporation--and its trendy, deadly, clone-friendly assassins (who don't care how many times they're killed: there's more where that came from)--his double is snuggling at home with his wife and daughter. And new legislation outlaws the existence of human clones, so somebody's got to go. But who gets to be live and who gets to be the dead Memorex man? Why does said genetics corporation want to clone people? How does the kindly scientist (Robert Duvall) fit in? What's the mystery behind the slick billionaire (Tony Goldwyn) who runs everything? It's all kind of irrelevant in the end, as long as it provides a chance for Arnold to indulge in some energetic mayhem and explosive action. What distinguishes The 6th Day is its sneaky, humorous--and chilling--look at the near future, taking everyday technological advances and turning them up just a couple notches, envisioning an era with cloned pets, virtual girlfriends, and computers running most everything, from the refrigerator to your car. Arnold is supposed to be a throwback to the "real" world--you can tell because he cherishes his vintage, navigation-system-free Cadillac--but as usual, he just brings his behemoth presence to the role and not much else. Still, he's a friendly enough hero, and he rolls with the punches (literally) all the way through to the end. Too bad the film overstays its welcome by about half an hour--a little shorter and it could have been a breezy sci-fi/action romp. With scene stealers Michael Rooker, Sarah Wynter, and Rod Rowland as the trio of cloned assassins who always come back--again and again. --Mark Englehart

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting background for Jet's Martial arts Jan. 29 2004
Format:DVD
Okay folks, don't get your fruit-of-the-loom in a bunch about the plot, storyline or try to review this movie from a Shakespearean angle. It's a Jet Li movie for crying out loud. I thought the universe jumping renegade idea was unique and the people who brought you this movie put a lot of effort in it. The DVD extras shows this and you can't help but be impress. Now back to the movie, I found it really entertaining from an action junkie's point of view. It's a thrill watching Jet handcuff half a dozen Los Angeles Sheriff's officers like he was knitting a sweater. The finally fight is awesome with the good versus evil Jet Li's. He moves so effortlessly that it makes sense that he's not very tall and not very muscular. He easily runs circles around much taller and more muscular opponents. He looks great in this movie. The space age, high tech background to his martials arts was kinda different and it keeps Jet fresh and interesting to his devoted fans, but I can also imagine him winning a few Trekkie fans with this movie. Jason Statham and Delroy Lindo as Multiuniverse policemen was also a nice touch. Statham did a pretty decent job with the American accent and Jet spoke more words in English than his previous American movies. He sounded better than I expected. Carla Gugino, the mom from Spy Kids, appears breifly as Jet's loving wife. Their relationship adds a human side to this story, but I thought it could have been more physical and she could have played a bigger role. I often wonder why Jet never kissed any of his leading ladies, even though he is able to convey a certain romatic side on screen as evident in "Romeo Must Die". Whenever the script calls for a love interest, the relationship is presented in a subtle way, but Jet's face is so expressive that maybe that's all that is needed. With this movie, I've difinetly became a solid Jet Li fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good movie, why all the negatives? June 19 2004
Format:DVD
When I first watched this movie I did not know what to expect. I had never even heard of it until it was available to rent. Once I was able to see it, I thought it was a very good movie, but not perfect. The concept of a multiverse makes for good sci-fi and this movie was definately interesting to me. The story goes like this: there are 123 universes that make up the multiverse, and in each universe there is a different version of each person that exists in the other universes. Jet Li plays Gabe Law, a cop in one universe. In another universe he is Yu Law, a man obsessed with power. Power and strength are divided equally among the 123 universes, and each time of of the variants dies, his power is divided among the rest of the men. So Yu Law has been illegally been traveling within the multiverse and has killed all but one of "himself" and himself. Sound complicated yet? It may be to some people but watching it clears a lot up. So two multiverse agents are after Yu Law since he has murdered all of the others, and Gabe Law is drawn in to stop him also. The balance in the multiverse could be destroyed if there is only one left. So that is that in a nutshell. The movie is loaded with great fight scenes and special effects that make for a visual treat. My favorite scene is in the beginning when Yu Law kills the guy while he is in police custody. Now this movie is not perfect, and it does get to a point where it gets a little dull for a while. Just be patient because it does get better, especially with the fight between Gabe and Yu Law. Some people are giving this movie negative reviews because of the unoriginality. Is it unoriginal? Perhaps to a certain extent. Are the special effects a rip-off of movies like the Matrix? Somewhat.

2.0 out of 5 stars Well... April 4 2004
Format:DVD
I love movies where a guy who can't act and is only good with martial arts because he's attached to wires fights himself in a series of long, drawn out scenes. Wait, no I don't.
The fight scenes were cool at first, until I realized some thing. They involve a man slowing down time and dodging bullets while using Kung Fu. Haven't we seen this some where before? Some thing that begins with "M" and ends with "atrix"? And wasn't there some thing in that movie about "parallel worlds" too...?
And don't give me that, "But the fight scenes looked cool!" spiel. Yes, they did, but if I had a guy in a monster suit walk around stomping on model cities and made it look cool it would still be a Godzilla rip-off. As a matter of fact there's one scene where Jet Li dodges a bullet and it looks so much like a mirror of the original scene that it's not even funny.
The story is full of problems. Why does Bad Jet Li shoot Good Jet Li right in the bullet-proof vest? Why can Bad Jet Li shoot some one with out even looking but he has a hard time shooting Good Jet Li while aiming? Why does a well-funded security organization in charge of keeping law and order in the multiverse send only TWO guys after a homicidal madman? Why didn't the agent guy just shoot Jet Li as opposed to talk man-to-man? And most of all...what the hell is Jet Li saying? I can barely understand the mumbling coming out of his mouth. Jackie Chan speaks better English in his film bloopers. I take it back, he said "No!" in one scene - I understood that.
If you want to see a stylized sci-fi movie with some cool (and unique) action, I point you to the underrated film "Equilibrium." Storyline isn't entirely original, but the acting is far better and you can actually understand the words being said by the characters. Otherwise, save your time.

1.0 out of 5 stars Who cares about the multiverse
Terribly boring. I tried my best to like this as a Jet Li fan, but couldn't. If being bored could make you cry, then I'd have to setup a dam outside of my house.

3.0 out of 5 stars And in a movie all ABOUT range, Jet can't pull it off
Van Damme tried to do it in Timecop. Schwarzenegger tried it in The Last Action Hero. It seems every action hero has to eventually face himself. Literally, by playing his twin. Read more
