Seeking details of a terrorist bomb plot, FBI agent John Archer undergoes a face transplant adopting the identity of his comatose adversary, Castor Troy. As he impersonates Castor and attempts to obtain the information from his imprisoned brother Pollux, tables become turned as Castor wakens, receives a transplant of Archer's face and moves in with his wife. John Woo's third American film is stylish, outrageous, and never slow; ignore any plot holes you might encounter.
