The ordeal of superheroic, singularly dedicated FBI agent Sean Archer is only beginning after finally capturing his archnemesis, Castor Troy, an elusive, maniacal terrorist who claimed the life of Archer’s son. While Troy languishes in a coma, Archer surgically “borrows” Troy’s face in an attempt to gather evidence about Troy’s last bomb - which is currently ticking away in a Los Angeles office building. Trouble ensues when Troy wakes up faceless, borrows Archer’s visage, and makes a mess of Archer’s life; all the while, both men struggle to adapt to their new identities while struggling to blow each other away. Another balletically filmed, thematically complex action smorgasbord from Hong Kong vet Woo. Academy Award Nomination: Best Sound Effects Editing.
