Face/Off ★★★

Following Hard Target and Broken Arrow, the 3rd time was the charm for John Woo's Hollywood phase. Face/Off not only landed at #8 at the domestic box office and 12 worldwide for 1997, it showcases two of the most recognizable faces the US had to offer in the late 90s, John Travolta and Nicolas Cage. And without too much studio interference during this production, finally the US got to see a clear unleashing of Woo's hyper stylistic action filmmaking that made Face/Off a very 90s, very John Wooesque, hit.
