Critic Reviews of "Face/Off"
CNN.comJuly 28, 2015
I won't pretend that I completely enjoyed it, but it certainly has a few elements that I've never seen before. Action aficionados will undoubtedly slobber all over themselves.
Wall Street JournalAugust 02, 2013
[A] gorgeously shot, repetitively violent, occasionally repellent, sometimes silly and consistently trashy fantasy.
Philadelphia InquirerAugust 02, 2013
For all its fiery explosions, Face/Off just kind of implodes.
Orlando SentinelAugust 02, 2013
It's sick, slick and sensational.
Chicago TribuneAugust 02, 2013
In Face/Off, Woo sweeps us away again, into a world of wild action, heroism, villainy and double faces that turn deadly.
SlateAugust 02, 2013
A knockout new thriller by John Woo.
Baltimore SunAugust 02, 2013
Face/Off is a giant step for a filmmaker known more for action sequences than psychological insight.
Philadelphia Daily NewsAugust 02, 2013
An engaging and at times sophisticated story of identity and behavior, wearing the leering face of a farcical action cartoon.
Total FilmAugust 02, 2013
What really makes Face/Off tick, what sells the movie more than anything else, are the dazzling performances from the two leading men.
Radio TimesAugust 02, 2013
Woo more than delivers in the overblown action stakes. It's also patently evident that both stars are having a ball sending up each other's mannerisms.
South Florida Sun-SentinelAugust 02, 2013
Face/Off is a masterpiece equal to the action classics Seven Samurai, The Wild Bunch and The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.
Spokesman-Review (Washington)August 02, 2013
[Woo] benefits from the dual performances of John Travolta and Nicolas Cage, who alternately glower and boogie their way through creepy material that would have been far beyond the reach of lesser stars.
