"The One" by Yojimbo

A former agent who policed the various different universes finds that killing the other versions of himself increases his own abilities and so sets out to murder them all and become a super being. On paper, this interesting alternate reality premise and the idea of two Jet Lis battling each other sounds great, but the workmanlike direction and unimaginative plot turns it into an unrelenting exercise in mediocrity. Essentially a shoddy Matrix clone, the action sequences are clumsy and unexciting and the cast struggle with their cardboard cut out characters, especially Jason Statham who is saddled with a wholly unconvincing American accent. This kind of meat and potatoes generic sci fi flick should be left to keeping the likes of Mark Dacascos in leather trousers; like all of the other Asia...

A pretty good sci-fi action movie

"Yulaw" (Jet Li) is a former "MultiVerse Authority (MVA)" officer who became drunk with power when he realized that when one of his parallel counterparts in alternate universes, their energy is distributed to thier counterparts in the parallel universes. Because of this discovery, he has become a mass murderer with super strength and agility. His victims are his parallel counterparts, each living a variation of his life.

After being sentenced to life in the "Hades Universe" for murdering 123 of 124 parallel universe counterparts, he escapes and uses the technology the "MVA" uses to send prisoners to the "Hades Universe" to hunt down his surviving parallel counterpart, a Los Angeles County Sheriff named "George Law" (also played by Li).

Now, "Law" has to clear his name when "Yulaw"...
