Fresh: Face/Off makes bad movies look worse and makes the making of good movies look like the most thrilling work in the world. – Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly, Aug 2, 2013

Fresh: Scenes of high-voltage action vie with wild hilarity as two guys with guns switch faces and identities. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Nov 24, 2006

Fresh: Watching John Travolta and Nicolas Cage square off and literally exchange roles brings back the old-fashioned pleasure of astutely judged movie star pairings in a major way. – Todd McCarthy, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: It's difficult to describe the jolt his films deliver when [Woo]'s on, and he is on with a vengeance here. – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, Aug 2, 2013

Outstanding Film....

My parents always told me this movie was great as a kid, but I was never able to see it then. So one night I was digging through for some movies to watch and decided to give this a shot. Man, what a movie. Nicholas Cage and Trovolta's acting together in the movie was phenominal. Its a tight action thriling story that quickly grabs the attention of the viewer. The acting in this movie was incredible! Cage plays a sick twisted killer. At first that souds like a terrible match, but he played the part. And especially when trading off. Only movies with better acting was Dark Knight, and Dracula of Van Helsing. Amazing movie.

Chill out man, its just a movie. I thought it wasnt bad.

i know seriously!!!

its a movie chill out. they make movies about people getting shot 50 thousand times and living but you don't see people crying about it. it's ACTINGGG!!!!!!! if you don't like the movie then dont cry just dont watch it it's as simple as that. if you wanna get literal with every movie you see then just read a book im sure it'll explain everything in detail for you.the movie had good acting a good story and alot of good fight scenes. ya so what they can't get your body to literally someone elses but this movie was made in the 90s and is way better than half the movies that come out now a days. i agree with everyone that says this is an amazing movie b.c. they take it for what it is. :)
