An Entire Planet Of Jet Li's Bitches

The only awesome moment in The One, starring Jet Li, comes at the very end of the movie. (So don't click if you haven't seen it.) An evil version of Jet Li has been hopping from alternate universe to alternate universe, killing other versions of himself so he can absorb their energy and become a superbeing. Then he comes to "our" Earth to kill his last remaining counterpart. It's mostly an excuse for scenes of Jet Li fighting a painfully obvious stunt double while Jason Statham scowls. But the ending rules. Spoilers ahead!

As punishment for his dimension-hopping, serial-killer ways, the evil Jet Li gets sent to the Stygian Penal Colony in the Hades Dimension. It's an evil planet in an evil universe. You just know that no planet in the Hades Dimension could possibly be a nice place. All the other inmates size him up and decide that he's got a pretty mouth (which he totally does), but Jet Li announces that they will all be his bitches. (He has incredible stamina.) And then we pan back to some truly incredibly conceptual design of this barren prison planet with a gray spaceship flying overhead. All of a sudden The One looks like a real scifi movie. And then it's over.

This movie was by the two guys who made Millennium interesting, and the first Final Destination. T

he alternate world storyline was very cool, but the movie is just average, but I have to admit it is on my guilty pleasures list, mostly for this scene, and the one where the Bad Jet beats the snot out of the cops.
