Muddled plot with confusing international conspiracy involving the UN? Snipes was a badass Eddie Murphy looking foo. The gunplay was actually pretty realistic for Hollywood, including shooting through concealment. The tension was felt throughout thoughout. It seemed like they didn't know what to do with the romantic subplot. Fav scene: Snipes sneaking out while pretending to be FBI, rough-handling a bad guy, and getting the approval of the beat cop.

Aside from a decent ending fight sequence, Wesley Snipes proves he still can't carry any film by himself that doesn't have "Blade" somewhere in the title.

Wholly disengaged action sequences act as filler for a loose Chinese/American assassination plot involving the United Nations and one of its superagents (Wesley Snipes) being framed for murder, but the storyline is so poorly constructed that for all its setup, there's nothing to really follow. All the studio delivers is a mindless Wesley Snipes spy thriller with poor action sequences, a boring 'hero,' no central villain, and an absolutely useless and uneventful conspiracy plot.

I'm a fan of Wesley Snipes but I am not a fan of Wesley Snipes's movies. This movie doesn't even try. The title is the best part about it.

Wesley Snipes is a master of selecting bad action roles. The Art of War is another entry in this very ugly and unique category. Ultimately, it is little more than a ridiculous action film with a plot as believable as the Warren Report, ugly violence that would have made Peckinpah cringe, and terrible acting by B-list actors like Michael Biehn and Anne Archer. Oddly, it feels like the undiscovered sequel to another Snipes "masterpiece," Rising Sun.

Bad movie except for the part when Snipes breaks that dude's knee.

An action movie with only mediocre action. That's a problem. While it's not really a bad movie it's certainly nothing special. Not bad enough to remember, not good enough to remember either and thus it's forgettable (unless you're a huge Wesley Snipes fan).

Wes could stand to do a better movie. Are most of the action scenes filmed in silhouette or with out his head so he doesn't have to do the actions? How about this convoluted hard to follow who gives a poop plot, huh? A couple decent stunts.
