...primarily comes off as an in-name-only sequel to its 2000 predecessor...

Reel Film Reviews

Unlike its quite-good predecessor, this one's poorly plotted and slackly directed along with overshot action sequences putting the final nail in the coffin.

Audience Reviews for The Art of War II: Betrayal

½

I don't know what all the fuss is about. It was an typical action movie - retired good-guy agent against the world. Sure it is similar to the Bourne movies, but it is not the only movie that is. If you like the one-man-against-the-world type of movies, watch this.

Terrible film, really boring, uninteresting and not needed in any way. I know Snipes is in the straight to DVD club right now but this doesn't even have any action! most Van Damme and Seagal straight to DVD's are miles better than this. Bad acting, lame 'action' scenes and a non existent plot make this an utter waste of time and film, I cant even imagine them making money from this.

Average action thriller sequel with Wesley Snipes in his return as Agent Niel Shaw who is being betrayed again. Snipes' action scenes in martial arts were okay, but the slow motion with the flashing between black & white and colour didn't seem excitement to me.
