Predictable precursor to Face/Off
5 September 2000 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

Predictable, generic cop fare notable only for the many direct similarities to John Woo's Face/Off, which debuted subsequently. The initial sequences, from the speedboat chases to the plastic surgery sessions, are beat for beat the same. Lamas is adequate as the police infiltrator with revenge on his mind. A lot of violence and little plot. Two stars.
