Lorenzo Lamas plays dual roles, one as a cop and the other as a crook. When the cop is severely wounded trying to apprehend the look-a-like crook, the cop is asked to be facially altered to stop set up the mobsters in question for Billy Dee Williams to take to justice in this surprisingly decent Canadian actioner. This would be a great B.movie if it didn't have Lorenzo Lamas. Lamas is merely competent, when someone like Van Damme or Lundgren could've made the role much more complex and likable. That said Lamas is okay, but the Deep Cover-inspired plot, and the Face-Off like subplot fails to live up to the potential that has been set up by the premise. That said the action sequences are well conducted, the story moves at a fast clip and the acting by Billy Dee Williams, Rae Dawn Chong and Conrad Dunn (great as the baddie) elevate this above sheer mediocrity. Also the beginning which showcases Lamas, in which he looks like Jeff Foxworthy is unintentionally hilarious and it ruins what suspense might've been had, as the wig and beard basically make one crack up more than anything else. Mask Of Death is a slightly better than average actioner, in-spite of Lamas and genuine suspense in the finale makes this a far better movie than one would expect. A B.movie but a pretty good one, all the same.
