Cage and Travolta at their bestBy ButtonMasher (14 reviews) from London , 30 Dec 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]This is a top action/suspense movie that all Cage and Travolta fans will love.
Travolta is a police officer after slick criminal Cage. When captured Cage is in a coma and so cops are unable to find out the location of a hidden bomb he is known to have planted.
Secretly Cage's is face is removed and put on Travolta so that he can convince Cage's brother (in prison) to reveal the location of the bomb.
Things start going horribly wrong when the real cage awakes from his coma and takes Travolta's face.
Travolta is now in an impossible situation. He is stuck in prison with Cage's face and everyone that knows the truth is dead except for his enemy the real Cage who is taking over his life.
Can Travolta get out of prison to stop the bomb and save his family?

Superb ActingBy JohnFair (48 reviews) from Stockport , 05 Jul 2013One has to start off by saying that both Travolta and Cage have had an, ah, uneven record in films over the years but in this film, the pair shine as the criminal and cop who swap face in an all too literal way. I can't see how they could have been better. Action galore of course but there is a fair deal of thought put into the way the characters change as they swap identities - there are a number of niggles over the relative ease with which they recover from the operations and transplant rejection doesn't seem to have been a problem but the action flows along so well that you don't really care.
You know you want to watch it again.By Kisaca (2 reviews) , 19 Feb 2013I love this film now as much as I did the first time I watched it. Of course, there are parts that are full of cheese and it can be predictable, but it is still a good watch. One of the best that Cage and Travolta have done.

Good but cheesyBy a customer , 04 Feb 2013Absolutely amazing film, one criticism; the end is probably the cheesiest thing I've ever seen, but that can be forgiven
Absolutely BrilliantBy colourful_angel (2 reviews) , 05 Jan 2013This is a high octane action movie. Expect vilonce and a lot of swearing. If that is not your idea of a good movie then I would steer clear. The combination that is Travolta and Cage, is brilliant. The premise of the film, is basically borowing a man's face so that he can get a job. What he didn't expect, was for the guy to wake up and take his. This is a type of film, that from the moment you start watching there's action. Unlike a lot of films, the action starts from the very begining and keep you on the edge of your seat from the begining. Would I recommend this, yes.
