The Way of War (known officially as Way of War) is a 2009 American film directed by John Carter from a screenplay by John Carter and Scott Schafe. Filming took place largely in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
Special Activities Division Paramilitary operative David Wolfe (Cuba Gooding, Jr.) stumbles upon an international conspiracy connecting presidential cabinet members to a Middle Eastern terrorist plot. Wanting to expose the truth, Wolfe defies orders to remain off the field, and returns to the US as an army of one fighting for American security and integrity.

The film received mostly negative reviews when it was released direct-to-DVD in 2008. "The story is unevenly pieced together through cheap flashbacks, leaving the audience in the dark for nearly two-thirds of the film until, finally, things start to come together, sort of. But by then, sadly, it's too little, too late. The mystery is lost in a sea of weary ideas and well-worn plot devices," said one reviewer for IGN.
