Summer Celebrating: Biehn VS Snipes
Unfortunately, The Art of War wouldn't be a home run for anyone involved. It was a modest hit that grossed less than half of what Blade did and was quickly forgotten. Over the next decade Snipes' only big screen successes came from Blade sequels before being sent to prison for tax evasion. Biehn, whose star confoundedly never rose after his collaborations with James Cameron, (Terminator, Aliens, The Abyss) battled substance abuse during the 90's but managed to pop up and deliver memorable performances in films like Tombstone and The Rock in between low budget DTV projects.
If you haven't seen the movie, I'm about to spoil it for you.
Birthday boys Biehn and Snipes nearly re-teamed for 2007's DTV effort The Contractor with 300 and Game of Thrones star Lena Headey but Biehn's schedule on Robert Rodriguez's half of Grindhouse couldn't accommodate the trip to Eastern Europe. Maybe with Biehn producing his own films now we may see the two team up again in the future.
Here's part of the final fight with some random music edited in:
