|If nothing else, there are the effects digital and anatomical to gorge on in this sci-fi battlefest showcasing martial-arts superstar Jet Li fighting ... himself! The basis of the film, directed and co-written by James Wong ("The X-Files"), is one familiar to comic-book readers. It's the concept of parallel universes, with great or subtle differences, existing in the same space but at different vibrational frequencies. In every one, there's a duplicate version of each of us. A renegade (Jet), illegally using classified technology, travels the multiverse to slaughter his doppelgangers, steal their life force and become god-like. The last duplicate marked for death is a cop on our world, and he'll go down fighting. The wild eye-candy (i.e. a transporter device that violently breaks down and reintegrates human tissue; a super-fast, super-strong Jet vs. Jet grudge match) is enough to recommend a DVD rental or half-price ticket. And that's all, folks. With Delroy Lindo, Carla Gugino ("Spy Kids") and Jason Statham ("Snatch").|
