Dale Reveiws 3 - The One (2001)

Suggested by: CJ Boat

TITO Rating: 8.5 (Finally a good movie!!!)

My interpretation of the plot: A super Asian criminal, formally an officer of the "Multiverse Authority" (MVA) that polices inter-dimensional travel (via detecting wormhole openings, which can be predicted like the weather via flip phones), seeks to hunt down and kill all other variations of himself in alternate universes. In which, the alternative does some crazy actions (for example killing his wife because she is confused as she can see 2 different people.)

Back story:  Clearly this movie has gotten better with time. The film received mostly negative reviews. Based on 84 reviews collected by Rotten Tomatoes, the film has an overall approval rating from critics of 14%, with an average score of 3.9/10

Now for the review....I don't care if I'm the highest rating this week, this movie deserves it! The (relatively) simple plot mixed with the rocking soundtrack to back the fight scenes and to use a transitions is the way a good movie should be made!

Some other notes. One distracting thing about this movie is that it has all of these hi-tech fancy guns and touch panels in your alternate universe...but you have a small box television and every time the TV is on in the background it is playing the George W Bush health care reform speech (Is there something I'm missing something?) Also, who needs this cool tech, when you have fantastic kung-fu skills and slow motion on your side. Lastly this movie taught me so many things, but the most importantly that humans don't have paws and a tail....

This has been fun! If you have any feedback or suggestions, you can email them directly to me at thechefwonder @ gmail . com (remove the spaces) or tweet them to me twitter.com/TheDaleCampbell and huge thanks to CJ and the Geek IO crew for letting me release the trannies each and every week!
