Film Series: Face/Off

1997. USA. Dir: John Woo. With Nicholas Cage, John Travolta. 139 min.


An FBI agent goes undercover by swapping faces with an evil mastermind, who retaliates by using the agent’s identity to wreak havoc. Travolta and Cage clash with each other (or is it themselves?) in gleeful self-indulgence throughout this dopey but riveting thriller from compatibly over-the-top auteur Woo.
