Entertaining...but not more

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.

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 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.

Pop Culture Phenomenon Films: 90’s (1036 movies items)

" Directed by John Woo, this wonderfully crazy, and over the top action, has John Travolta and Nicholas Cage trading places. It’s Freaky Friday, but with bullets and explosions. 1997, was indeed a big year for Nicholas Cage, given that this movie and Con Air were big hits at the box office."

"16.8. Blu-ray Nicolas Cagen pelleily on aina hienoa. Varsin hienoa on myös, kun John Travolta esittää Cagea. Toimintakohtaukset ovat ulkoisesti tyylikkäitä, mutta oletettua sieluttomampia. Melodraama ja hidastukset muuttuvat Hollywoodissa sentään odotetusti hassuiksi. Juoni on aivan pönttö, se ei ole ainakaan elokuvan haitaksi, eikä kukaan tajua Cagen veljen olevan oikeasti kadonnut Gallagher-veli. Ei yhtään ennalta-arvattava loppu antaa aivan liian hyvän mahdollisuuden jännittäv"

Freaky Plastic Surgery On Film By Ashley Clark (10 movies items)

" Exploding the boundaries of plausibility in the service of fun has always been high on Hong Kong director Woo’s list, and the bonkers Face/Off – in which full, perfectly-rendered face transplants are an actual thing – was no exception. This pulsating action thriller saw prime ham actors John Travolta and Nicolas Cage having a whale of a time impersonating each other’s OTT acting styles while ‘wearing’ each other’s faces. "

"27.9. Tajusin, etten ollut nähnyt Face/Offia melkein kolmeentoista vuoteen, vaikka peruskouluvuosieni sairaspäivät menivät pitkälti VHS:n parissa. Kun Disney ilmoitti ettei se enää julkaise kotitallenteita back catalogistaan, päätin hommata BD:n hyllyyn. Samalla sain tietysti hyvän tekosyyn katsoa leffan pitkästä aikaa. Juoni agentista, jolle siirretään koomassa makaavan superrikollisen naama, jotta pahiksen veljeltä saataisiin lipsautettua vankilassa arkaluontoista tietoa, on e"
