FBI agent Sean Archer (John Travolta) must go undercover to investigate the location of a lethal biological weapon planted by his arch-rival, the sadistic terrorist Castor Troy (Nicolas Cage). After undergoing a radical surgical procedure, Archer literally takes Troy’s face to assume his identity and carry out the mission. But things go awry when Troy, emerging from a coma, undergoes his own face transplant to transform into Archer. Action master John Woo directs this bombastic classic of the ’90s.
