It’s like looking in a mirror, only not. John Woo‘s 1997 release, Face/Off is one of the most ludicrous, yet fun action movies ever made. The John Travolta/Nicolas Cage them-up makes little sense in the real world, but Woo manages to make the over-the-top concept of Travolta and Cage switching faces seem like a logical idea on screen.
This image shows John Woo giving direction to Nicolas Cage and John Travolta during the film’s finale. It looks like Travolta’s stunt double is lurking in the background.
Budgeted at $80 million, Face/Off grossed $112 million at the US box office and $133 million in other territories for a $245 million global total.
