The One mistake picture

Continuity mistake: Both Gabe and Yulaw have their hair parted on the right side. But during the fight between them, you can tell they flipped the image of the film as it shows Yulaw's part on the left side in one shot, and again a couple shots later. It then returns to his right side.

Continuity mistake: In the garage when two cops are looking for Gabe, they are startled by a cat. Just before the cat jumps out, both cops have their flashlights on. Once the cat jumps out and they follow its movement, the camera cuts to show them turn around, and now the cop with the green jacket's flashlight is off.

Continuity mistake: When Funsch does Gabe a favor and sends him to a new universe rather than his old one, Gabe goes through the wormhole and winds up in the middle of the street. Shown previously, traveling between the universes is extremely painful, and renders the traveler very disoriented for a time. Just before being sent to his new home, Gabe was already sent through a wormhole not but a few minutes before, and was barely able to stand, it being his first time dimension hopping. Yet when in this new universe, he stands up and rescues a dog, showing no sign of disorientation at all, despite not only just being ripped apart and put back together, but it happening twice within just a few minutes.

Continuity mistake: At one point in their fight, Gabe hits Yulaw hard enough he flies back into a machine, and causes a shower of sparks to start falling down like rain. One shot shows Gabe step into the shower of sparks, and shows many of the sparks bouncing off his head and shoulders. The shot cuts to Yulaw, then back to Gabe. Gabe is still in the shower of sparks, but not one is touching him. In fact, through the entire time those two are in the sparks, it never again shows any hitting or bouncing off them, except towards the end of the spark shower when Yulaw is flipping through them.

Continuity mistake: During the fight with Gabe and Yulaw, Yulaw does a powerful move of lunging forward and smashing Gabe with both his fists, sending him flying into a green metal box that crumbles from the impact. Gabe then falls to the floor, close to the box. The shot changes to Yulaw thinking he has victory, then back to Gabe. Gabe is now noticeably further from the green box, and his arms and legs are in different positions.

Continuity mistake: When the police trucks are racing out of the garage and the first one hits its roof on the opening garage door, look at the truck the very next shot. There is no damage.

Continuity mistake: When Yulaw slams Gabe into a metal box, the glass and debris falls next to his feet. You see both glass and a few chunks of metal, with one especially large chunk of metal. It cuts to Yulaw, then back to Gabe, and now the metal chunks are missing and it just shows glass shards.

Continuity mistake: After Yulaw killed Lawless, he makes a run for it through a busy street and past a section of road construction. There is a cop chasing him and looks down saying, "Holy shit... he's doing 50." Only two shots later it shows Yulaw running across an intersection, and he is not moving anywhere near fast enough to be going 50mph.

Continuity mistake: When Jet Li has been sent to the penal planet and is on the floor, some guys walk up to him. Jet Li walks up the steps and the guys call him fresh fish, but they're still looking down to the floor.

Continuity mistake: When Yulaw is in the vents and the police are shooting at him, you can see that the policemen's flashlights on their guns are on and pointed at the vents, but in the next shot where it shows the vents, there is no light shining on them.

Continuity mistake: When the evil Jet Li hits the motorcycle cop with his motorcycle, he crashes into a store gate and bends it. The camera angle changes to a wide shot and the top of the gate is now broken when it wasn't in the previous shot.

The One mistake picture

Continuity mistake: Right before the evil Jet Li shoots the cop Jet Li, the cop Jet Li slides down a concrete wall with a huge groove in it. In the next close-up, he turns around and he is standing farther down in front of the wall.

MCKD

Continuity mistake: When Jet Li arrives home after checking himself out of hospital, on his way up the stairs there's no light visible through the curtains. Just after he reaches the top, we can see them again behind Carla Gugino, and there's daylight pouring through them.

Jon Sandys

Continuity mistake: Right after the prison escape, Jet Li goes after another version of himself that is a cop. The evil Jet is hiding in the duct work, and even though the majority of cops are firing their weapons straight ahead, the bullets are hitting the duct work 10 feet above them.

MCKD

Continuity mistake: When MVA Agent Harry Roedecker is hitting the evil Jet Li with the fire extinguisher you can tell that the entire scene was pasted together because Jet Li's hands are up in one shot then down in the next, then back up again as he's being hit.

MCKD

Continuity mistake: When TK sees the dust on the floor below the attic hatch, she takes off a white jacket and drops it on the floor right next to it. She then goes to get a chair and returns. Now the jacket is gone.

Quantom X

Continuity mistake: In the chase scene after Yulaw kills Lawless, it shows him leaping across a gap between two bridges. In second shot, when he first start the jump, it shows him make it half way across the gap. Then the next shot shows him barely past the first railing, not close to half way yet.

Quantom X

Continuity mistake: When the bad Jet Li is running from the cops, you can see 3 cop cars, but when he jumps from one bridge to another, you only see 2.

Quotes

Narrator: 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. There was balance in the system... But now a force exists who seeks to destroy the balance... So that he can become The One.

Mistakes

In the penal scene with the pyramid, Yulaw knocks a person off the pyramid, and he rolls down the steps. A short way down, he stops rolling, and you can see him push himself off another step to get himself rolling again.

Trivia

In the gunfire scene at the prison, at the beginning of the movie, when the sergeant yells to two of his men "Woo, Scott, follow me," it is a clear joke from director James Wong to fellow moviemakers John Woo and Ridley Scott.
