FACE/OFF (Theatrical Release USA 1997)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì

casts Nicolas Cage with John Travolta to produce an unusual flick based upon revenge. The film stands overall as a good movie with its fair share of action. The movie does not require a great deal of energy to work out the story line and quickly becomes a ‘sit back and enjoy the show’ piece of entertainment.

Yes. It performs a little above the status of a ‘B’ grade action film and is worth the watch. Great work for Director John Woo.
