The unique 1997 motion flick Face/Off isn’t essentially a great film by regular requirements, however I might contend that it’s a excellent film. So I used to be understandably cautious when it was introduced that it could be receiving a type of 25-year+ sequels Hollywood is so intent on making from director Adam Wingard. But in response to returning star Nicolas Cage, I needn’t have apprehensive—as a result of in opposition to all odds, the sequel seems like it will likely be extra ridiculous than the unique.
If you don’t know the unique, it’s some of the over-the-top movies ever created. Taking an totally preposterous premise—folks can surgically swap faces with one another (and have their our bodies, eye colours, and voices modified, too, natch)—Face/Off had famous scene-chewers Nicolas Cage and John Travolta are requested to play as essentially the most excessive variations of one another, egged on by the excesses of Hong Kong action-movie grasp John Woo. The result’s totally distinctive, unhinged, and entertaining.
And but, the sequel sounds even wilder. During a latest interview with Collider, Cage revealed the sequel will see the kids of his and Travolta’s respective Castor Troy and Sean Archer repeatedly swapping faces with each their fathers and themselves:
I believe Face/Off is a sequel that lends itself to numerous twists and turns and unpredictability. It’s virtually like in the event you issue within the thought of offspring and Castor and Sean having youngsters and these youngsters develop up, then it turns into like three-dimensional chess, after which it’s not simply the 2, John Travolta and myself, it’s 4 of us ping-ponging and going at totally different ranges, and it turns into much more complicated. I believe there’s numerous fertile floor there. I had perhaps one assembly in an workplace, however I haven’t heard something since, so I don’t know.
When requested if there was any credence to Cage’s outlandish declare, screenwriter Simon Barrett answered within the affirmative.
Basically, it’s 2 Face/Off 2 Furious, and whereas that doesn’t guarantee it’s going to be entertaining, it’s positively on course, which is over over-the-top.
