Apparently there isn't just one universe; there are multiple parallel universes and it is possible to travel between them, although this movement is heavily policed. The agency responsible for the policing is the Multiverse Authority. Gabriel Yulaw was one of the agency's officers but after he killed another version of himself in another universe he realised he got stronger and smarter
he then went rogue and started hunting all other versions of himself. Now there is only one left; Gabe Law of the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department. Since Yulaw began killing his doubles Law has also started feeling stronger and smarter; he also senses when Yulaw is around. Yulaw isn't bothered who he kills so Law's colleagues think he has gone rogue. The only people who believe that there is a double are Law's wife and Funsch and Rodecker, two Multiverse Authority cops who have been pursuing Yulaw for some time.
This is hardly a classic film but it is a fun enough was to pass the time and like sci-fi/martial arts. As others have mentioned the plot feels like a cross between 'Highlander' and 'Time Cop'; this isn't really a problem though as it is done effectively. The action is pretty impressive; the final confrontation between Law and Yulaw where we see Jet Li fighting himself was particularly well done it really did look like there were two versions of Jet Li fighting. There are also shootouts and explosions. The only weakness in the action is when Jet Li's characters display their superior strength; sometimes the effects used don't look as real as they might although the sight of Yulaw picking up two motorbikes and battering a cop between them was so silly it was funny! Jet Li is pretty good in the lead role and is ably supported by Carla Gugino as his wife, Jason Statham as Funsch and Delroy Lindo as Rodecker. Overall this is fun sci-fi action; not a must see film but worth checking out if you are a fan of Jet Li or Jason Statham.

There is not one universe, but there are many, which is a multiverse. Supposing you are just one person, there are many other versions of you in the other universes, there are ways to travel, but only a police agency, MVA, can travel only for police procedures. Gabriel Yulaw is a former MVA agent, who killed another version of himself in self-defense. It made the other versions of him stronger. When Yulaw found out about this, he became power-hungry killing the 122 other versions for two years. After killing Lawless and getting captured by his former partner Roedecker and a new MVA agent Funsch, Yulaw managed to escape the prison and is trying to kill his last target, Gabe Law who is a police officer. He is also at Yulaw's strength. Roedecker and Funsch now have to arrest Yulaw before he can kill Gabe. There is a possibility that the universe could die or make Yulaw invincible. After encountering Yulaw for the first time, Gabe thought that it was his split personality, but it wasn't. ...
