7 Must-See Movies Like Everything Everywhere All at Once
2. The Matrix (1999)
Considered one of the greatest action films of all time, The Matrix is the vision of directors Lana and Lilly Wachowski. The film is about Thomas Anderson, who finds himself at the center of a war between man and machine. After learning his true identity as Neo, Thomas enters the eponymous digital simulation to end the war. While missing the multiversal element of Everything at Once, both films are similar as their protagonists are thrust into a new world and must accept their fate as unlikely heroes.
1. The One (2001)
Directed by James Wong, The One is an action film centered on Gabriel Yulaw’s quest to become the immortal super being of the same name. To do this, he must travel between alternate universes to kill his doppelgangers while another alternate version of himself named Gabe Law races against time to stop him. Aside from being about multiverses and interdimensional travel, The One is rooted in Asian-American culture and explores themes of destiny and heroism. That’s why he takes the top spot on our list!
