      What to know

      Critics Consensus

      Excessively noisy and overly reliant on genre clichés, The Art of War wastes its star's charisma on a ridiculous, convoluted plot and poorly edited action sequences. Read critic reviews

        it has its moments of fun action but the story is a mess. by the end you'll wish you had chosen something better then this

        Wesley Snipes has never been better, one of his best roles in one of his best action films. A stylish, nail-biting, pulse-pounding twist-a minute action-packed thriller. A sensational and adreniline-pumping action-thrill-ride that kick starts the senses and kicks all sorts of ass. It's sharp, very smart and very entertaining.

        I've seen Wesley Snipes in such good form as he appears in this action-thriller movie since <i>Blade</i>.

        This is a solid action movie starring Wesley Snipes. Snipes works for the United Nations. But when a Chinese ambassador is assassinated; Snipes character gets the blame for it. Now he must prove his innocence and catch the real killer. This is your typical action movie. Full of action sequences and fight scenes. But it works for this movie. Nothing to special but it is entertaining. Worth a watch if your a Snipes fan.
