The Art of War Reviews

February 12, 2007
In this pretentiously titled international thriller, which is sloppily directed, Wesley Snipes plays an American agent who gets involved in the emerging relations between China and the Western world, with a shaky U.N. placed right in the middle.

Somebody get this director Christian Duguay an A-budget so he'll shut up and go away.

The Art of War keeps us reasonably entertained, if not guessing.

The Art of War keeps trying to distract us from the wispy inanity of what's going on by blowing something up every time we pause to reflect or wonder.

The film is a too-loud, poorly directed and seriously overedited addition to the tired genre of double-crossing international conspiracy movies.

Two hours' worth of painful stupidity, overt racism, and mind-battering noise and movement.

The Art of War seems to be processed through some demented kaleidoscope, suggesting a film that might exist while the one that does is giving you a headache.

The movie is competently made, but it deals with characters and situations so well-worn, there is no conceivable way to breathe any fresh life into them.
