Votes: 63,792 | Gross: $55.97M

In his second Hollywood movie, Jet Li impresses. Unfortunately, when he's not on screen, the movie slows to a crawl. Though there's some spark between Jet and Aaliyah, there isn't any threat of a fire. And as impressive as the action sequences are, some critics feel they are over-edited.

Votes: 85,902 | Gross: $43.91M

The One plays more like a video game than a movie and borrows freely from other, better sci-fi actioners, burying Jet Li's spectacular talents under heaps of editing and special effects.

These showdowns feature spectacular, Lord of the Rings-style CGI settings, but not much in the way of thrills or terror.

Votes: 279,916 | Gross: $85.02M
