Why watch this film?
The premise of 'Face/Off' may seem ridiculous at first, but if you give the movie a chance you'll see that the action sequences and plot are very entertaining. John Woo is an excellent director of Asian action cinema, recognized for his hyperstylization and elaborate choreography ('Hard Boiled', 'Double Target', 'Mission: Impossible 2'). However, the icing on the cake is seeing John Travolta and Nicolas Cage in a great acting duel, where one has to convincingly portray the other and vice versa.
In order to foil an extortion plot, an FBI agent undergoes a facial transplant surgery and assumes the identity and physical appearance of a terrorist, but the plan turns from bad to worse when the same terrorist impersonates the FBI agent.
