    The One is enjoyable Jet Li action flick which, is only really that good because of the fights. Other than that the film has a crap story and Jason Statham Yank accent is hilariously bad.

    Picture and sound are pretty good, with some okay extras.

    A enjoyable enough film on a not so special DVD.

    This is not the greatest of Jet Li films - better than Romeo Must Die but not as good as Kiss of the Dragon. Still, this is a fun no brainer, with a pretty good disc. Picture and audio are excellent. The extras are a little disappointing - the back cover seems to list an endless amount of extras but in reality we get a reasonable spread, with some quite interesting featurettes and a crew commentary.

    Overall, a nice action film, where you can turn off the lights as you do the same to your brain at the start of the film. Oh, and try and keep a straight face when Jason Statham talks. why… why… why does he try an American accent!?!??! Bet you can't!!
