The Art of War (2000)

Snipes plays a superhuman UN operative (he can leap off buildings and dodge bullets) who is framed for the assassination of a Chinese ambassador and hotfoots around New York with a sexy interpreter evading capture by the FBI and avoiding a beating at the hands of the local triads. The plot runs deeper, though. Further investigations reveal corruption at the heart of the UN, where crafty state leaders plan to banish all hope of trade agreements between China and the US. As a conspiracy thriller, it’s convoluted and over-egged. As excessive action fare, it works much better. Snipes beats up the triads with some fancy footwork and dodges Michael Biehn’s gunfire in the hallways of the UN headquarters for a rather meaty finale.
