Neil Shaw (Snipes) is one of the best covert agents in the United Nations Secret Unit. But practically no one knows he or the elite security force even exists. That is until a Chinese ambassador is murdered, and suddenly Shaw is considered a prime suspect in the killing by the FBI. It becomes apparant to Shaw that there are more U.N. murders planned and he must look after those he has sworn to protect while trying to clear his name.The movie The Art Of War is not based on the book The Art Of War that offers strategies for success without warfare by Sun Tsu.

The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD exhibits a picture that is quite pleasing throughout, with colors that are bold and vibrant. Fleshtones are nicely balanced and blacks are deep and solid. Images are sharp and detailed, though a slight haze is occasionally evident. Contrast and shadow delineation are superb, with excellent visual information in the darker scenes. The picture is quite solid throughout, with no distracting pixelization, edge enhancement or artifacts. (Suzanne Hodges)
I subscribe to several magazines because each one has a different bias, and they obviously don't always write about the same things. I purchase magazines at the newsstand when a particular article or review interests me enough that it's a keeper. I consider Widescreen Review to have the most professional bias of the home theatre magazines. Whereas something like Sound & Vision, I would consider to be more of a consumer bias. One of the things I like about Widescreen Review is the articles about the industry and technical articles (e.g., room setup). I also like its detailed equipment reviews that tell it like it is. One other item of note would be the DVD reviews. I like the ratings, the short descriptions, and the technical information.
