While attempting to flee from the FBI, the criminal Frank Dallio kills Detective McKenna's wife, Rachel. McKenna himself is shot in the face by the professional killer Lyle Mason, who dies in a car crash shortly thereafter. The FBI persuades McKenna to undergo facial surgery and take the place of Lyle Mason in order to find Dallio and a valuable microchip. Written by

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.
