Chris' Film Club: Face/Off

Today the Film Club can say a big "Happy Birthday!" to none other than Nicholas Cage. To honour the occassion I have chosen one of his least outlandish films (which is still pretty darn outlandish) which is the 1997 action film Face/Off. This was John Woo's 3rd Hollywood film after a successful career in Hong Kong and it has a ludicrous plot in which Cage and John Travolta play psychopath and good-guy respectively, and then end up wearing each others faces. Fairly standard then.

It also stars Joan Allen, Alessandro Nivola and Gina Gershon and the trailer can be seen below.
