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 fe... read more

I saw this film yesterday, and thinking back about it, I only remember the action scenes. I remember buildings exploding, boats exploding, piers exploding. Because that's what it's good at. 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

To foil an extortion plot, an FBI agent undergoes a face-transplant surgery and assumes the identity and physical appearance of a ruthless terrorist, but the plan backfires when the same criminal impersonates the cop with the same method.

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

Katsotut 2016 (235 movies items)

"Katsottu: 24.4.2016, rewatch, DVD Juoni on melko järjetön, mutta se antaa molemmille pääosannäyttelijöille mahdollisuuden vetää erilaiset roolit. Toiminta on kyllä hyvää ja tämä taitaa olla John Woon paras Yhdysvalloissa tehty elokuva. "
