Face/Off is one of the greatest movies of all time, and anyone who disagrees is no friend of yours. Who doesn’t love John Travolta channeling the most unhinged Nicolas Cage performance? Cage isn’t exactly channeling Travolta in the face-swapping epic, but he does find a way to at least slightly tone down his over-the-top tendencies. But what matters is this all-time classic is now 25 years old. It was released on June 27, 1997, and we’ve been rewatching it over and over again ever since.
But as much as we truly adore this film, there are still some very questionable choices made. When you sit and think about Face/Off for a minute, it becomes very clear that there are a number of plot holes, big and small. They don’t matter in the grand scheme because it’s impossible not to enjoy this movie. That said, we have many questions after our most recent viewing of the movie.
So, to celebrate Face/Off’s 25th anniversary, join us as we venture down the rabbit hole and attempt to figure out what’s really going on with this movie. Will we ever get the answers we need? Absolutely not. But hey, there is a sequel on the way.
