Abstract:
We live in a multiverse - where multilpe universes exist. Supposing you are just one person, but there are versions of you in the other universes. There are ways to travel, but those are restricted to the MVA, a police agency who can only travel for police procedures. Gabriel Yulaw is a former MVA agent who killed another version of himself in self-defense. It made the other versions of him stronger. He goes on to kill Lawless and gets caught by his former partner Roedecker and a new agent named Funsch. Yulaw manages to escape the prison and tries to kill his last target, Gabe Law. Gabe is a police officer who has the same strength as Yulaw. Roedecker and Funsch now have to arrest Yulaw before he can kill Gabe. After encountering Yulaw for the first time, Gabe thinks he has a split personality. Now, Gabe will have to confront Yulaw before Yulaw kills him.

Summary

Summary

An ex-Multiverse cop finds that by traveling between the various universes and killing his opposite he becomes stronger and quicker.


Summary

Former X-Files writer James Wong makes his sophomore feature as a director at the helm of this science fiction thriller that's reminiscent of Timecop (1994). In the near future, a technology called "quantum tunneling" allows human beings to travel between parallel universes. The abuse of this ability by criminal elements has led to the formation of the Multi-Verse Authorities or "MVA," an agency of quantum traveling cops who apprehend violators of inter-dimensional laws. The MVA faces its greatest crisis when a former agent named Gabriel Yulaw (Jet Li) goes renegade, traveling between one universe and the next, murdering his own parallel selves and gaining enormous power with each slaying. It is believed that when Yulaw has become "the one," the only version of himself to exist, he will be omnipotent, but the final Gabriel Yulaw exists in our plane of existence (the "magna universe") and is also becoming stronger, though he doesn't understand why. Hot on the evil Yulaw's trail are his former partner Harry Roedecker (Delroy Lindo) and Harry's new colleague Evan Funsch (Jason Statham). Created with Wong's longtime writing and producing partner Glen Morgan, The One (2001) co-stars Carla Gugino. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi
