To foil an extortion plot, an FBI agent undergoes a face-transplant surgery and assumes the identity of a ruthless terrorist. But the plan backfires when the same criminal impersonates the cop with the same method. (IMDb)
Cage and Travolta are both fantastic in their respective dual roles (each especially as the crazy Castor) in this cop vs. killer flick with a really cool (albeit far-fetched) identity switch twist. The main premise is mined for all its worth in a script loaded with delicious scenes of deception, but the intriguing character drama is tainted by a thin plot and an overload of excessive gun fights and action sequences: The resultant film teeters between unique thriller and typical action movie.
