I love Wesley Snipes and his hand to hand combat with bad guys. I also loved his Blade movie. I liked the humour and the action. He barely has a scratch with his fight scenes.

Format: DVD
I've been stunned by the career of Wesley Snipes. Forget the whole IRS issue from this past year. It has nothing to do with his acting ability or star power. But for someone to rise from bit parts to starring roles and then suddenly find himself in direct to video films, one has to question...what happened? Especially when he turns in a decent movie like THE ART OF WAR II: BETRAYAL.

Snipes returns as agent Neil Shaw, having gone underground at the end of the first film. Shaw receives word that his mentor and martial arts instructor, Mother, has passed away. At the funeral service, Shaw and the rest of those gathered meet the daughter no one knew Mother had. Heather (Athena Karkanis) talks with Shaw, blaming him for Mother's death only to change her mind later.

From there, Shaw goes to work as a consultant on a movie set where he has become friends with the star, Garrett (Lochlyn Munro). Invited to his boat, Shaw learns that Garrett is about to run for the Senate. It is then that he asks for Shaw's help with an apparent blackmailer. But as with all good spy/thriller films, nothing is what it seems.

As Shaw begins to dig into the possibilities, he also comes into contact with a Senator Carlson (Rachel Hayward), running once more for office and under observation by Shaw's old nemesis, Becker (Eric Brecker). It seems that there is an assassination attempt in store for the Senator and Shaw is on the case, unofficially of course, searching for not only the killer but the person behind the sanction.

Following up on leads, Shaw shows at a political cocktail party to question another Senator. Unfortunately for Shaw, the Senator has been murdered and he has been set up to take the fall. Downloading material from the Senator's computer, he escapes and heads out to get the help of a computer whiz kid friend to find out just what he's come across.

The information provided puts Shaw back in harms way as well as his friends. While Shaw continues to search for the person who set him up for murder, Becker and his crew begin searching for Shaw through his friends beginning with Heather. On the lam with Heather in tow, Shaw cautiously puts together the pieces, linking the Senators to an arms developer named Sallas (Michael Phenicie). The question remains, who is behind Sallas?

While the movie at first seems to wind around different roads in search of something to pull them together, in the end it all becomes clear. The leads that Shaw finds make sense and come closer together with each new clue. What appears to be at first confusing makes perfect sense by films end.

Action is what Snipes career is all about since he starred in PASSENGER 57 and the BLADE films. And those looking for the typical Snipes action are in for a treat. The fight sequences seen here are not only well put together but filmed to advantage as well. The entire look of the film is top notch.

It's been 8 years since Snipes played the character of Neil Shaw. His abilities have not dwindled in that time. This takes us back to the initial question I had. What happened to Snipes career? Why has he gone from top billing on the big screen to direct to DVD features that show he is as competent as always? Perhaps only those in power in Hollywood have the answer. In the meantime, we can still enjoy the product Snipes offers, delivering the goods with each outing.

nice action movie Aug. 13 2008

Format: DVD
I liked this actually i thought it may have been maybe somewhat dull like the contractor but it was better than that, not as good as the first art of war, the fights were cool, nice action flick overall.

Lackluster Action Film Oct. 4 2009
By Tsuyoshi - Published on
Format: DVD
"The Art of War II: Betrayal" is a straight-to-DVD film starring Wesley Snipes. I think this is worse than his "The Contractor" and even "The Detonator."

In "The Art of War II: Betrayal" Wesley Snipes plays Neil Shaw, a retired special agent now working for a movie star Garret (Lochlyn Munro) as action consultant. When his martial arts sensei is murdered, Neil is approached by a mysterious woman named Heather (Athena Karkanis) at his funeral, who claims she is a daughter of the dead master, and Neil is responsible for the death of her father.

The film never takes off with its plodding pace and the confusing plot that is unnecessarily twisted. There are a gun-wielding government operative and a corrupt big company leader out to kill a senator. I don't mind the weak storyline and these stock characters provided the film delivers good actions. Sorry, it doesn't. Josef Rusnak (who did a pretty impressive job with the sci-fi thriller "The Thirteenth Floor" starring Gretchen Mol) needs a better action choreographer. The action sequences, shoot-outs and martial arts fighting alike, are lackluster and unexciting, greatly damaged by amateurish editing. Also, the climax is unintentionally funny with cheesy special effects. Don't miss what happens to the villain at the end.

You know, the title of "The Art of War" came from the teaching of Sun Tzu, which are too good for this mess.

Bond & Bourne-Style Action from Wesley! Dec 30 2008
By Big Ron - Published on
Format: DVD
I was pleasantly surprised by Art of War 2. This movie flew under my radar in the theaters somehow. I didn't even hear about it until now (Dec 2008). For those reasons, I didn't expect much but I'm glad I was wrong. Wesley is a cool character in a role similar to the Bond and Bourne movies. Action is always around the corner with lots of stunts and martial arts. There is a heavy dose of martial arts as it seems everyone he fights knows it and knows it fairly well. I highly recommend Art of War 2 for anyone looking for more Wesley Snipes movies or something along the lines of Bond or Bourne action.

GARBAGE May 11 2011
By W. LEE - Published on
It's pretty bad when the photography is so dark and so lacking in detail, that it makes the watching experience absolutely painful. Add to that the non existent script and lackluster acting and you have to wonder what film the positive reviewers were watching. Not worth the time, money or effort. Just another paycheck straight to DVD loser by Snipes. Sad to see such talent now doing these toilet bowl cleaner efforts. About as good as the excrement which it should be placed next to in the commode. Trash.
