Product Description:

THE ART OF WAR is a suspense-filled action thrill ride. Shaw (Wesley Snipes) is part of a top-secret team working for the United Nations, solving crises and helping maintain world peace. On a new mission involving security for a high-stakes trade pact between China and the United States, the Chinese ambassador is assassinated and Shaw is framed for the crime. Shaw must learn who framed him and why--in the process fighting off Chinese Triad gangsters, high-tech assassins, and the FBI. The only people who help Shaw are a beautiful Chinese translator (Marie Matiko) and a skeptical agent (Maury Chaykin). In addition to saving himself, Shaw has to race to keep the trade deal from collapsing and the United Nations from being humiliated and weakened. A tense techno-spy thriller, THE ART OF WAR boasts strong performances from Chaykin and Michael Biehn. Snipes gives a memorable portrayal as Shaw (half James Bond and half Shaft) with his own unique combination of martial arts expertise and secret agent charisma. Filmed largely in Montreal by Canadian director Christian Duguay (SCREAMERS, THE ASSIGNMENT), THE ART OF WAR is an exciting film with good fight sequences and a fast pace.
