This is a pretty good article about a brilliant action-movie:

Excellent article Roxie, and I enjoyed reading it, I have always felt Nic is brilliant in this movie and captured Travolta perfectly.  So I especially like this:

 Cage is perfect: when he is acting as his own character, Castor Troy, he is utterly insane and almost too manic to bear; when he is acting in place of Travolta’s FBI agent Sean Archer, he is suitably reserved and melodramatic. The best comes when he acts as Travolta acting as Cage, a performance that I don’t think I can do justice to in words. His potency prevents Face/Off from being eaten up by its own ludicrousness.

I do feel that this movie is certainly one of Nicolas' finest acting moments. smile

I think, it is one of Nic`s most brilliant performances and a masterpiece!

I have a friend who tried to get me to see this movie for years and I would say "No, I don't like John Travolta"  Then I 'found Nicolas' saw the move and now I say "yes, I love Nicolas Cage".  It sure is funny how things work out.

I used to be a massive Travolta fan - more than Cage back in the day! Gone off him now really. But Blow Out and Saturday Night Fever are still of two of my fave all time films
