Plot: Shaw is an operative for the United Nations' covert dirty-tricks squad, using espionage and quasi-ethical tactics to secure peace and cooperation. When a shipping container full of dead ... Runtime: 117 mins Release Date: 25 Aug 2000
In a world where nations do exist and there is in reality a political struggle for power, this movie couldn't be more timely. It uses a play on the theme of the ancient Chinese military philosophical writings by Sun Tzu. Sun Tzu said that you don't attack your enemy until you know you can defeat them and you defeat them form the inside, using their weaknesses against them. This movie brilliantly applies this philosophy into the world of international relations. This movie does all of this in the one man vs. the world schema, in the light of all modern classic action movies Segal, van <more>
Dame, etc but it does it with real acting, real plot and suspense, plus a few phony explosions and action sequences. I loved the acting by Snipes and the police detective Frank Capella played by Maury Chaykin- and Donald Sutherland did a good job as well. All in all you will love this movie and watch it again and again. I promise this film is worth watching!
The Art of War starring Wesley Snipes and featuring some excellent acting by an excellent cast is an absolutely brilliant thriller. There are people when giving their view and rating of the film , have given it 7, 8, 9 and 10 out of 10. I personally give it 10 out of 10, but those scores are also good. People have underrated this film giving it scores of 1, 2, 3 , 4 , 5 and 6 out of 10 and some viewers have put the view 'Where's The War, There's No War'. Well this is not a War film like Platoon, but the war comes in with the violent fights, violent battles, shooting and <more>
killing of people, that's the war. Remember this a pretty violent thriller and being called The Art of War, there's nothing wrong about it, to be honest it goes very well and it suits it very well because the film does contain very harsh violence. Those people who have negatively put these stupid and negative comments about this film are bloody idiots. This is an awesome film and those who underrate it are dickheads and those who give good scores of 7, 8, 9 and 10 out of 10 are people who know what are an awesome thriller is, what it should have and so on. The film The Art of War has tension and contains lots of powerful scenes which feature some some awesome fights done by Wesley Snipes character Neil Shaw and his enemies. I love this film, I really enjoyed watching it and I think that The Art of War and Passenger 57 are 2 of Wesley Snipes films which are the best because they contain some powerful martial arts fighting done by Wesley Snipes. People should not underrate Wesley Snipes and his films, he is an excellent actor who has done some excellent films that many people love.
I thought this movie would barely be a good way to pass a lazy evening due to the low rating and all of the bashing that this movie received. I was extremely surprised at how excellent this movie actually is. Of course there are a few cliches, but there are also some truly great moments. Don't miss this
Most people didn't like it, but... (by mike-320)
Most people thought this movie was confusing and hard to understand but its not if you pay attention. I don't see what people don't understand. The only part I didn't understand was the very end, like the last few seconds. But I think I have that figured out too. If you can't pay attention to the movie and have absolutely no idea about politics or a little bit about conspiracies, then you shouldn't see this movie. But, it is a very good action movie. I very much enjoyed it. 7 1/2 out of 10. Personal Note: Don't read if you haven't seen it I didn't like it <more>
when they showed Eleanor's death. With the blood and the brains and all. I kinda liked her. They could have just made a gunshot sound.
a great action filled movie with great twists and turns. (by nzcoolguy100)
I found this movie a great action movie that involved Jackie Chang like moves. A great move all round. I expected some twists and turns but some I was baffled by. Snipes with his best movie yet.All though some people thought it was a bad movie I found it enjoyable. 9 out of 10.
One of the Best Movies I've Ever Seen (by sirchuck4)
Was exciting and hard to understand, like Mission Impossible and the Sixth Sense. If you like action movies you'll love this one. It is probably my second favourite movie ever made, and I've seen a ton of movies.
Good plot and acting, but confusing presentation (by FlickJunkie-2)
Most people can't differentiate between a bad film and a film they don't like. Many people didn't like this motion picture because of its liberal subtext. That doesn't make it a bad film. Most people don't realize that this was a Canadian production and that probably explains the political slant. However, as action films go, it was intelligent, high tech, stimulating, bordering on believable seldom are action flicks actually believable , with plenty of violence. I didn't particularly agree with its `New World Order' message, but it was still a solid film.The main <more>
criticism I have of the film is the editing. In an attempt to make the story more intriguing, it is pasted together in a convoluted way that makes it very difficult to follow. All the factions and motivations are eventually explained, but one has to pay very close attention or see the movie a few times to catch them all. The screenplay suffers from an excess of subplots, which makes following the story that much more difficult. The biggest sin committed by the producers and director was that they did not understanding their audience. This film targets action lovers, who are a visceral lot. They want to be stimulated, not confused and intrigued. They also tend to be more conservative politically God, Guns, Guts . So naturally, the film bombed.Wesley Snipes delivers a strong performance in the intelligent action hero role. Snipes seems to be locked in the action genre when he is really too bright for the roles he plays. He should take a lesson from Samuel L. Jackson and look for scripts that are more dramatic. Jackson still does action films Shaft , but he picks parts portraying complex characters and scripts with strong character development, instead of straight macho testosterone parts. Snipes would have done well in some of the roles Jackson has had. Anne Archer does a fine job as the manipulative career diplomat, pulling everyone's strings behind the scenes. Donald Sutherland is a bit flaccid in this film, but his character really didn't have a lot of bite.Overall, this film is a strong entry into a genre dominated by mindless body count. I rated it an 8/10. Those who like their action flicks to be completely believable subtract two points. Subtract another two points for those who don't like confounding story lines. For those who abhor screen violence, don't even bother.
Disclaimer first: This is not Citizen Kane, obviously. But THE ART OF WAR is about as fun as an action movie can get. Yes, Snipes is a runaway agent wrongly accused, we have seen this in US Marshals and Murder at 1600 by the same Writer. . But this movie has two things that those movies lacked, STYLE and an enjoyable supporting cast. ART, with all its chase scenes and fight sequences and there are a truck load , is beautifully shot.The sets and camera work are great, and most importantly partially because I live there you buy that you are in NYC. Few signs of the Canadian stand in, <more>
Montreal. Everything is slick and well shot.Behind Snipes are a great cast of action cronies, Maury Chaykin as Capella the FBI agent who doesn't know whether to arrest or help Snipes, Marie Matiko, Julia the VERY attractive hostage/eyecandy Hollywood should learn from the TASTEFUL handling of her strip scene and a bunch of good character actors who could be of course our villain s .Yes, ART OF WAR has too many twists, it tries hard, too hard at times. But it is better than the other action flops that have stopped trying all together.Bottom line this is The Fugitive meets James Bond with a little Jackie Chan . Its a fast paced, slick, action flick, that has half a brain in it. Snipes is awesome in it and should look to move forward from roles like this. Ignore the cynical critics who are obviously trying to suck the fun out of action movies and see it.
Irony.This is one of those films which the film snobs beat up when it first appeared.Years later, when it turns up on a streaming channel, viewers invariably ask, Hey, why don't they make em like that anymore? Answer: because of the aforesaid film snobs.The plot is tight, as is the casting, the acting, the direction and the cinematography. Archer is great. Snipes is at his peak and it shows.The film does exactly what it was supposed to do, then and now.It engages, it entertains.But for some people that is not enough.
