    Highly entertaining, clever little package. Original story spoilt somewhat by director Woo's signiture "horizontal diving/shooting/slow mo" camera shot and Travolta's tendency to overact a little.Not bad at all

    A face-off between good and evil.

    Face/Off is an intense, intelligent film that is full of symbolism, explosions, drama, plot twists and funny one-liners with an over-th-top performance by Nicolas Cage and John Travolta holding his own. It loses a bit of steam at the end when you realize there is only one possible ending, but it is everything you could want in an action film - including no increasingly decling-in-quality sequals (so far). Anyone looking for excitement that doesn't insult its audience - put down that copy of 'Tango and Cash' and grab this. Highly recommended!
