It’s been a while since I’ve given you three minutes of movie-skewering insanity, but Awesomely Bad Movies is back and this time I’m slinging the silly about John Woo’s 1997 action extravaganza, Face/Off, starring John Travolta, Nicolas Cage, John Travolta AS Nicolas Cage, and Nicolas Cage as John Travolta. The premise alone is enough to make me want to talk about it, but throw in the overblown ’90s John Woo-isms and weird, pervy leering and you have wall-to-wall bonkersness of the most awesomely bad kind.
There’s actually so much insanity in the 2hr 18min movie that no short video could truly do it justice, but I do my best. Scenes that I wanted to lampoon but couldn’t include Cage waking up with out a face, Travolta-Cage teaching his daughter how to use a butterfly knife, Cage-Travolta getting high and doing the “Face…Off” motion a thousand times, and the gunfight in front of the mirrors. But, now that you know what’s NOT in the video, have a look and see what IS!
