"Ass-kickin' action/"
4 stars

Jet Li is da bomb! And he's kinda cute too. But mostly, he's really a good Karate person and this movie proves it! Science fiction and karate are as good as peanut butter and chocolate in a big ball of yum. Oh yeah. its so good to eat.

Its kinda matrixy, but still cool. I think you have to really dig Jet Li to get into this movie. Its all just a bunch of fight scenes. I mean, there's a plot, but its pretty standard, up to and including the part where the girl gets kidnapped.

Lucky for Jet Li, he can time travel. That's how he got in trouble. Or his character, who has so many names I can't keep up.

See, in the omniverse, time travel is illegal but in many parallel universes, people don't know the universe is multi-dimensional. But this one guy does and he wants to kill all the hims that exist so he can become the most powerful man in the whole universe.

This is comic book level shit here people and I don't see Superman anywhere!

alls well that ends well and we get treated to a cyberhell with even more Jet Li Kung Fu action!

I think there were so many jet li's so the whole movie could just be Jet Li kickin' ass even if he's just fighting himself.

I can't remember any of the characters names but it doesn't matter. When you see this movie, all you'll be thinking is Jet Li is master of the omniverse, even if the bad him gets sent to omniverse hell.
