The One (2001) 87 min Rated PG-13
A sheriff’s deputy fights an alternate universe version of himself who grows stronger with each alternate self he kills.
Opener: Wait wait wait. First, kudos on the automatic chair straps…I’m in here tight… ..zip zip zip…very cool….second…did he say penal colony? or penile colony. I just need to know how much I need to struggle here.
He’s doing 50!
Twitter: The One- A Kind of Multiverse Ground Hog Day meets Highlander without the charm of Bill Murray or Sean Connery. But we did have Jet Li going 50. so…yeah.
Stuff I Loved:
Highlander of the multiverse
Do we need voice over and subtitles
Police bullet proof helmet. Less than bullet proof
Let the bodies hit the floor.
He’s doing 50…as long as he doesn’t slow down he shouldn’t blow up wildcat
Our muscle car has a turbo sound.
I can’t hear you…
My gun goes pew pew pew
The only person who can kick Jet Lee’s but. Is Jet Lee!!
I know it was a lot of setup…but I found the keys to this truck in the garage in the hopes you would still be standing in the carport after a long bit of banter with Jason Statham.
Multiverse travel is painful.
Victim 119 Jude Law. Promethius Universe. Doh!
Is that some sort of body scanner? Nope…it’s a glowing vibrator
Movie Auto Straps…Cause in the future…people don’t got time for strapping
Penal colony in the hades universe
is that a paper clip hanging out of that’s rat’s anus. look at the size of that skroat!
Bush’s universal healthcare?
Only in Prime universe is Jet Li a good guy.
Not only are there multiple universes…but apparently all of them are just a little bit timeshifted.
This is like a Multiverse Ground Hog day.
Prime Universe. The only Universe that matters.
How come he ain’t going 50
sorry…no bad news today…maybe later.
Why is alternate universe Jet Li not have a goatee.
Already getting a feeling that this movie is going to end with a “No..It’s me!! I’m the real Jet Li…shoot him…” moment
ha! not unless he had one put in this morning in reference to penile implant.
A wedding ring and a necklace
Ha! He looks like a robot in that MRI head gear
Most aspirated x-ray tech ever. “WHAT! HOLD STILL!! I DON’T WANT TO HAVE TO DO THIS TWICE”
No! He got out…now we have to start the x-ray all over again.
Jet Li crawls funny.
My gun makes laser sounds.
shoot M.R.I. machine…it’s full of smoke
Worst security camera operator ever.
Who cocks a shotgun and then uses it to restrain someone.
One thing wrong with this theory. What if the converse happens. All of the you’s die in every universe…but one of you happens to survive. Wouldn’t that make you The One.
If you get into “The Shit”
that girl girl stuff
Answers come without thinking. Hey…am I the one? of just a no thinking smartass.
an energy…string…wave….don’t be mixing theories
can punch through a van…can’t beat up old partner
Why yes…I am going to beat you up with a couple of motorcycles.
hehe…hey….what are you guys doing…stop kicking my signs down. I know gas prices are high but c’mon!! Yeah yeah…falling prices…fuck you.
Why is it a martial arts movie wet dream to fight yourself? Equal matching for a good fight? something more metaphorical?
With all the sparks it is like “The Greatest Man Alive”
Lots of modern rock….well modern in 2001
The slow mo works in this movie.
Jet Li has the shirt wipe thinkg for his bruce lee…bring it on nose bleed.
haha…”That order is bullshit!”
He sent him to the pleasure planet. Was there not already a law there?
Fresh meat boys
Most awesome ending to a movie
They didn’t lock me in here with you…they locked you in here with me.
Penile Implant Colony! NOOOOO…
