R-rated version has been cut on the so-called "Mirror Scene" where Neil Shaw (Wesley Snipes), in flashbacks, sees his partner being smashed against the mirrors in her apartment. In the US version you only see her being knocked against the mirrors three times. In the uncut version right after she hits the third mirror you still see the following: She pulls her head back an there is a lot of blood on the mirror. She then kicks her attacker against the knee, who then smashes her against a piece of wall between two mirrors. He then grabs her again, pulls her back and throws her against the mirrors again and you can see her actually flying against the mirror, breaking it completely. At this point the R-rated version continues with her falling to the grounds and several pieces of glass dropping on her. See more »
this political thriller isn't too bad.it's not really fast paced paced,and there is some predictability to it.but it should have enough twists and turns to keep you guessing.it's also a fairly intelligent movie.it's also compelling enough to maintain interest.at least i thought so.i also found it more stylish than many movies of the genre.Wesley Snipes is the main star,but there are some other well known actors here.these include Anne Archer,Maury Chakin,Donald Sutherland,Michael Bien,Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa and James Hong.for this type of movie,this one is not as over the top with ridiculous action scenes.though it does have a few scenes with strain believability a bit.for me,The Art of War is a 6/10
