“To the uninitiated, Face/Off sounds absurd,” we wrote. “It is absurd. Nothing about chopping off your personal face and stitching your worst enemy’s face in your cranium as a replacement makes a shred of sense. However how else are you going to have the ability to unleash Nic Cage and John Travolta below strict directions to behave like essentially the most completely insane model of one another that they will muster?”
