PG-13 | | Action, Sci-Fi, Thriller
A rogue Multiverse agent goes on a manhunt for alternate versions of himself, getting stronger with each kill. Only the last version of himself, an LASD cop, can stop his crusade before he becomes "The One".
Filmed in 2001 but supposedly set well into Earth's future, in the first Earth-universe scene at the Earth-prison (about 20 minutes into the movie), just before Law attacks the prison guards transferring a prisoner, a prison TV airs a news channel reporting this Earth's US Gov't is likely to enact "Universal Health Care" for its citizens . . . little did the movie's producers know that in just nine years, the Barack Obama Administration would pass the Affordable Care Act.
There is not one universe. There are many: A multiverse. We have the technology to travel between universes, but travel is highly restricted and policed. There is not one you. There are many. Each of us exists in present time, in parallel universes....
While talking to Gabe and describing the multiverse, Funsch says "In another, you're married to the same woman. In another, to a different woman. In another, you're married to a man." This illustrates a significant plot hole within the premise of the film. Since over time, people would not marry the same people, would not marry, or would engage in homosexual marriage which would likewise preclude the same parents, each universe could not be populated by exactly the same people as was shown. In most books and movies in the "meet your other self in a parallel universe" genre, this would not be a problem, as it has become an accepted logical blind spot, a bit of artistic license. However, a character mentioning this within the story, breaks the illusion and negates this particular artistic license.
German theatrical version was edited for violence to secure a "Not under 16" rating.
