The Art of War 3: Retribution is an action-packed thriller movie from 2009, directed by Gerry Lively. The film is about a highly skilled, former US Army Intelligence Officer, Neil Shaw, who gets entangled in a conspiracy that threatens global peace. Anthony 'Treach' Criss plays the lead role of Shaw, who is framed for the murder of the Chinese ambassador to the United Nations.

As the movie begins, Shaw is living a quiet life after resigning from his previous job. He is approached by his former boss, Christine McKay, who tells him that an assassination attempt on the Chinese ambassador is about to happen, and Shaw is the only person who can stop it. However, Shaw is set-up by a group of rogue agents within the US government and is wrongfully accused of the assassination. The situation becomes more complicated when it is revealed that the real culprits are part of an international criminal organization that aims to destabilize the world's power structures.

Shaw has no option but to go underground to clear his name, and he realizes quickly that he cannot trust anyone, not even his former colleagues. As he navigates his way through this dangerous situation, Shaw meets a South Korean journalist, Sun Yi, played by Lee Sung Hi. Sun Yi is a fearless reporter who is determined to expose the truth behind the assassination, and she aligns herself with Shaw to help him bring the culprits to justice.

The movie takes the audience through a rollercoaster ride of action-packed scenes and plot twists as Shaw fights to clear his name and stop the evil doers. The fight scenes are well choreographed, and the cinematography is exceptional, making the movie enjoyable to watch.

Shaw's journey takes him from the United States to Korea, where he uncovers evidence that points to the involvement of a notorious criminal organization called Five Eyes. The group's leader, known as 'The Ghost,' is played by Warren Derosa, is ruthless and will do anything to achieve his goals. Together with Sun Yi, Shaw embarks on a mission to bring the Ghost down and expose the corruption behind the group.
