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.

Easily the least of the series
2 July 2012 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

I have seen the original "The Art Of War", as well as the first sequel, and I found both of them to be passable exercises in entertainment. However, the third time is not the charm. The budget has been slashed, which probably explains why Wesley Snipes did not return. Anthony 'Treach' Criss is not a satisfactory replacement for Snipes. While he's not awful, he's awfully bland and lacking Snipes' charisma. But the reduced budget also gives the movie a cheap feeling. It is VERY obvious that the South Korean set story was not actually filmed in Korea (I should know - I lived in South Korea for a year.) The action sequences are sloppy and lacking excitement. As for the script, there's a real sense of deja-vu here, even if you can't immediately think of where you've seen these plot elements before. There is a twist near the end, though many viewers will be able to guess it before it occurs. If this is what the series has been reduced to, I really hope there is not a part four.
