Even if you are a hardcore Wesley Snipes fan...I suggest caution
21 August 2008 | by harshalizeeSee all my reviews

Wesley Snipes' movies aren't exactly groundbreaking material, but the first Art Of War was a pretty good action movie even if it was a bit generic.

The new Art of War movie is a total disaster. I don't even know where to start. The plot is thin and incoherent at best. Both the direction and camera angles are amateurish or even worse. The entire cast was at best platonic.Some scenes are shot so badly, you wonder whether it was directed or just some homemade video slapped into the movie. Also, the makers did a pathetic job of trying to pass off Canada as L.A.

The only 'good' thing about this movie is that you might end up laughing uncontrollably at their miserable attempt at making a movie.
