“Young warriors used to like to fight head-on. Old warriors like to wait, let their opponents expose the board, work themselves into a corner.”
Steven Seagal as Lt. Jack Cole – The Glimmer Man (1996)
Cole provides Det. Jim Campbell (Keenen Ivory Wayans) a lesson in chess and strategy from The Art of War by Sun Tzu in a bar after laying a trap for the bad guys. Later, Campbell repeats the lessons and says they should wait to enter a room full of bad guys. Cole tells him he listens well and doesn’t know why he doesn’t follow his own advice as he kicks the door in.
Keenen Ivory Wayans, who played Detective Jim Campbell, once played Customer #1 on the popular television series Cheers (1982).
