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)
Well, I've always been attracted by the world of pleasures that we can get from good hi-fi systems and more recently by good home theatre equipments. I was only 20 years old (23 years ago) when I bought a pair of Kef 105.4 reference series loudspeakers at $2,000. At that time, I earned only $6,000 a year, and my mother thought I was really crazy to spend so much money. But I have never regretted it and it is the same for all I have bought since then (over $25,000...). More recently, I have discovered your Web Site on the net, and I must tell you that I was very impressed by this incredible DVD search engine. It was not long before I subscribed to your magazine. I have sent your Web Site address to many friends who share my love for home theatre. I'm happy to tell you that they are also very enthusiastic about it. There is nothing that comes close to it. Iím also impressed by the quality of the reviews; in particular the very detailed commentary about sound and picture. I store on my Pocket PC the Picture, DD, DTS and critics rating for all my DVDs (close to 300...). Now, I'm hooked on your magazine (as well as the Web Site), and I can say that I read from cover to cover. I was also impressed with the way you push forward HDTV and in particular, D-VHS. I MUST TELL YOU THAT WE NEED YOU AS MUCH AS YOU NEED US... I appreciate that you are not just doing your job. I can tell that you are really passionate about it, as I am. In fact, if I lived near you, I would love to be part of your team. So, if I had to summarize my thought about why I read Widescreen Review, I would say first that with your magazine and Web Site, I'm much better informed, so I can make smarter equipment and software purchases for my hard-earned money and second but not least, I feel that I am in a modest way, helping you do the work that is important to push forward (faster and better) the wonderful world of home theatre. Keep up the good work. I am a fan from Longueuil (near Montreal.
