The One is a 2001 American science fiction martial arts action film directed by James Wong. The film stars Jet Li, Delroy Lindo, Jason Statham and Carla Gugino. Gabriel Yulaw (Jet Li), once an officer of the "Multiverse Authority" (MVA) that polices interdimensional travel (via detecting wormholes), seeks to hunt down all variations of himself in alternate universes. By killing all 124 of his other selves (becoming the last version), and absorbing their life energies, he believes he will become a godlike being called "The One", and become immortal. Yulaw is briefly captured by MVA agents Rodecker (Delroy Lindo) and Funsch (Jason Statham), only to escape from captivity during the trial sentencing him to life in a penal colony.
