Summary: A better Jet Li action flick.
This is one of the better martial arts films that Jet Li has done, where he fights a parallel-universe version of himself, and each is imbued with extra strength and speed, leading to amazing fights. But the movie itself is too short and it's all over too quickly. On the plus side, the movie has a pretty good speed-metal sound track, very appropriate.

Summary: Action slow motion is your friend
Very Matrix-Meets-Jet Li. I liked the soundtrack used, and some of the visuals were truly stunning, but other than that, this movie doesn't hold much original content. Not bad for casual viewing though.

Summary: Ok action movie
Yeah, it was kind of a rip-off of The Matrix, but still it wasn't a bad movie. The parallel-universe concept was well-done, but overall it wasn't quite as good as I would have liked.
