You can skip movies 10 times but never go back.
An antiterrorism agent goes under the knife to acquire the likeness of a terrorist and gather details about a bombing plot. When the terrorist escapes custody, he undergoes surgery to look like the agent so he can get close to the agent's family.
Walk into this expecting subtlety and you're in trouble. Walk into this expecting cheesy, retarded fun and you'll be just fine.
See, this film does something quite extraordinary. It takes an absolutely ridiculous gimmick, seemingly created just to have an absurd action packed impersonation contest and it makes it work.
This has absolutely nothing to do with the script, because it is just really poor. It is overlong, has some cringe worthy dialogue and is riddled with annoying static in the narrative. It works because of Woo, Travolta and Cage.
Travolta and Cage clearly understand the power of 'having a good time'. They embrace Face/Off's insane premise with admirable passion and enthusiasm. And as silly as it all is, I…

If there was ever to be a single film that encapsulates that superficial, machismo-laden, frat-boy popcorn flick that seemed to pervade the last half of the '90s, Face/Off gets my vote as its ambassador. Along with Independence Day, the first Mission: Impossible, and countless others, a new style of blockbuster had emerged - hyper-stylized, overly-polished, and seemingly allergic to any rational thought among the characters that populate them. Underneath it all, there was a sense of almost-invincible optimism running through pre-9/11 Hollywood. The action/exploitation flicks of the late '70s and '80s were buffed to a near-blinding sheen, and while they added nothing to the idea of cinema as art, by god, but weren't they a blast.
Even if we do find what's over the rainbow, I doubt it's better than this.
"Please tell me what planet I'm on!"
"It's like looking in a mirror. Only... not."
An unbelievable amount of explosions.
Some of the most well-choreographed gunfights I've seen.
Yeah, this is just too awesome for words.

I wish I was Nic Cage :(
Wow. This has not aged well. John Woo is so nonsensical to me, I just feel like the me that enjoyed this as a teenager was an idiot and should get off my lawn.
when i first watched it, it blew my mind keeping me on the edge of the seat.
i'm pretty sure that the same thing will happen if i watch it again.
such a tight thriller it was. 90s, bitches!
that sure was a movie
It's insane. It's hilarious. It's badass. It's touching. It's mother fucking FACE/OFF!
I forgot how gloriously stupid and ridiculous this movie is, from the title to the end scene.
I can't quite pin point the exact moment when this movie lost me, perhaps it was when Nicolas Cages face was removed and seamlessly transplanted onto John Travoltas face? I don't know. Nevertheless, it was certainly an entertaining cheese fest.
I couldn't stop laughing. My eyes nearly popped out my skull a few times. Excellently made block of cheese.
90 of my favorite movies from the 90s. In some sort of order.
Help me out with this one guys.
