I don't care what anybody says!...In my opinion, as far as American action-movies with martial-arts are concerned, "The Art of War" is flat out THE BEST! Forget Van Damme, forget Seagal, Snipes fights well & he's a legitimate, competent actor to boot!
This is an espionage, spy thriller with Snipes as a U.N. security agent. The plot centers around a conspiracy to thwart American-Chinese trade negotiations. There are double & triple crosses galore & this film has the feel of an updated film-noir classic, MTV style.
If you like well-made martial-arts films as much as I do, "The Art of War" is for you!

I really liked this movie. I saw the other reviews and was surpised by them.
I bought the movie really on the back of films like Blade, Passenger 57 and US Marshals. Its a good action film, one that holds your interest and is watchable again and again.
Not sure I take my films as seriously as some others...I didn't see this as some American or UN jingoistic offering, I just saw Wesley beat the bad guys! ...and it was fun!
If you like films like Mission Impossible, Chain Reaction, Three Kings, The Fugitive, etc... then I think you'll find this enjoyable.

The Art of War is an enjoyable film, but I recommend to fully appreciate it, you should watch it twice before judging it. The film is more enjoyable after youunderstand the plot. Super performances from Wesley Snipes and Michael Biehn, with a great supporting cast including Donald Sutherland and Anne Archer. WATCH THIS MOVIE!

An Undercover Operative (Wesley Snipes) works for the United Nations. When he has accept a Mission to Protect the Chinese Ambassador (James Hong) but he has been framed for Murder of the Ambassador from the Agency, he`s working for. Now he`s on the run against time to find the person, who framed him. The only person, he could trust is from the help of a Spy (Marie Matiko).
Directed by Christopher Duguay (Screamers) made a familiar but effciently action-thriller and it`s also well acted. This film has Plot Holes, here and there but the Supporting Cast including:Donald Sutherland, Maury Chaykin, Micheal Biehn, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa and Anne Archer helps. This film will please the Viewer looking for High-Octane Escapism. DVD`s has an strong anamoprhic Widescreen (2.35:1) transfer and an fine Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound. Super 35. Grade:B.

The Art of War is a stylish action film that trys too hard to follow the trend and style of recent blockbusters. The actions are mostly reminisant of John Woo films (such as Hard Boiled, Face Off, or Mission Impossible 2). For the most part, they are fairly good if un-inspired. The climax however is simply atrocious. It's an utter (...) of the last gun-fight in the Matrix with both men dodging bullets right and left. Aside from being a rather tired (...), it simply doesn't work. The characters don't posses any supernatural powers and so it's really hard to buy that they are dodging bullets.
Another problem is the films awful plot. For some reason, the Wesley Snipes character seems to have ESP. In one scene, he comes into a room where his partner had been beaten and murdered. Then, just by looking at the room, he sees everything replay in his head. In another scene, the character sees some guy coming out of a resturant. He notices that the asian guys is carrying a back-pack. He then drives through the resurant, grabs the back-pack, and throws it out the window where upon it explodes. Talk about police intuition (or maybe all asian guys carry bombs). As before, this wouldn't be a problem if the character actually had ESP but it's just kind of dumb here.

Maury Chaykin is the only redeeming thing this movie has to offer, hence the two stars. Maury Chaykin played Nero Wolfe in A&E's adaptation of Rex Stout's THE GOLDEN SPIDERS. He was astonishingly good as the neurotic Wolfe, and made a tepid story-line a fascinating watch.
In the abysmal ART OF WAR, Maury Chaykin hilariously plays a droll FBI agent, and relays the surreality of this farce of a movie by having a great time in his character. He alone is the only reason to watch this movie; his is a class act performance in relation to the rest of the poorly conceived and executed movie.
THE ART OF WAR pretentiously tries to adopt some of Sun Tzu's maxims, but coming at the end of a goofy flick, one is more embarrassed by their employ than anything else. Although this movie is really about watching Wesley Snipes wander around vandalizing things and beating people up, they could at least have attempted to gin up a less shabby premise.
Anyone who reads a newspaper will be totally bemused by the sorry devices parsed out as intellegient geopolitics. First of all, the United Nations does not negotiate trade treaties, does not have anything to do with the North and South Korean negotiations, and certainly does not mediate bilateral trade agreements between China and the United States. Second of all, the UN is a factionalized, marginally coherent entity that can barely keep its own paperwork in order, let alone conduct supersecret covert operations with a bunch of silly sassy spies. It'd take everyone about two seconds to find out about it, and the UN Security Council members would promptly jail any UN Secretary General that tried anything that stupid. This movie presents a total misunderstanding of what the UN does and how it is organized.
