Nice action scenes and creative story but you have to keep the button for your "sense of realism" switched off during most of the time... apart from that the main actors do a quite good job.

But mind you, Face/Off is not your generic mindless mess; it is quite clever, but only so. The film sees a terrorist taking on the face of a honest cop, and the cop in turn taking the face of the terrorist. One... read more

A good movie

“I had already seen this movie, even in the movie theater when it was released, but since I had it on DVD, I thought I might as well check it out again. Back then, in the 90’s, when John Woo finally made the move to Hollywood, many expected that he would make some amazing action flicks but, unfortunately, most of them turned out to be seriously disappointing.  This movie is however one of the few exceptions and easily the best movie directed by John Woo at the time. I mean, sure, the premise was completely preposterous but it is just so much fun to see John Travolta and Nicolas Cage switching roles and therefore having the opportunity to play both the good guy and the bad guy. Eventually, both actors delivered some strong performances but I think I had a slight preference for John Travol” read more
