Only one will survive,
This review is from: Face/Off [DVD]  (DVD)
Face/Off today is cheesy. Not that this is bad because it the over the top shoot outs, the hilarious one liners and a plot so bizarre that it instantly memorable. It one of those of those films which grabs you at the very start and throws you in with the characters , not letting go until the very ending . Something you expect for a action film.
Travolta and Cage are exceptional. You won't forget these two rivalry for years to come after watching them both. The lines they are given can, at times, be cringe-worthy but you won't act negatively towards them as they fit in perfectly with the rest of the film.
Woo delivers the shootouts with dedication and perfection. He never over does the slow-mo and he adds plenty of eye candy. Every shootout in the film will stay crystal clear for years after viewing them.
There not many negatives to this film. If your looking for a serious story and a realistic conflict between two men, then you will most likely not enjoy face/off. However, if you love explosions, OTT characters, rolling and diving and cool one liners, then this will won't disappoint.
