Storyline

When international diplomacy comes up short, extreme measures must be taken. In the newest installment of The Art of War, Agent Neil Shaw (Treach) is on a covert mission to stop North Korean terrorists from obtaining a nuclear bomb. But when the deal turns deadly, Shaw is drawn into the crossfire to save a beautiful facilitator (Sung Hi Lee) and ends up framed for murder. Now a wanted man with only his newbie partner and the mysterious facilitator by his side, Shaw must rely on his martial arts skills and warrior code to fight through Korea's mean streets and find the terrorists before they detonate the bomb at a United Nations peace summit.

Trivia

Was actually filmed before The Art of War II: Betrayal (2008), but shelved after Wesley Snipes indicated his willingness to return to the series. The producers considered retitling this entry and releasing it as an unrelated film, but ended up releasing it as the third entry in the series after the Snipes sequel turned out to be a hit on DVD.

To be honest, the first ART OF WAR film was bad enough, and the sequel worse. This final, clunking addition to the series loses the star (Wesley Snipes) and replaces him with the weak 'Treach', a rapper-turned-actor with all the presence of a lounge singer.

The narrative is set in Seoul, and sees our hero and his associates attempting to stop a gang of bombers from blowing up a peace summit at the U.N. What this means is that Treach and a couple of others hang out for a while in parks and hotel rooms and occasionally take part in some ill-devised action sequences which showcase both cast and crew at their absolute worst.

The pitiful action in this movie has to be seen to be believed; choreography doesn't get much worse than here. Even the C-grade likes of Gary Daniels movies have better fights than this. Director Gerry Lively also made the execrable DUNGEONS & DRAGONS: WRATH OF THE DRAGON GOD so it's no surprise that this effort here is so terrible. Watch out for the red lights flickering at the end of the toy guns they use in the shoot-outs.

Add in some clichéd supporting cast members, including the wannabe-funny British sidekick and the kind of Asian actors who've eked out a living playing racial stereotypes in Hollywood fare. Groan as Treach bashes some goons with some sub-par martial arts abilities and cry at the boring climax. Even B-movie fans will hate ART OF WAR II: RETRIBUTION. Even writing this brief review is spending too much time on it.
