Overview
Officially, coolly efficient covert operative Neil Shaw does not exist. Try telling that to anyone standing in Shaw's way. Wesley Snipes plays Shaw, one of an elite team of United Nations agents, in this stylish thriller directed by Christian Duguay (Joan of Arc) and co-starring Anne Archer, Michael Biehn and Donald Sutherland.

High-tech gadgetry. High-powered armaments. They're all weapons of choice as Shaw unravels a scheme to destroy a historic summit with China. Other weapons come into play: manipulation, cunning, control – all tactics from the Sun Tsu handbook about victory without combat. The Art of War draws more than its title from that ancient work. It plunges us into a world that puts those tactics into bitter, suspenseful action.
