Starring: John Travolta, Nicolas Cage, Joan Allen
Directed By: John Woo
Pair two of Hollywood's hottest stars, add in a world-renowned action director and what do you get? Non-stop, stylised on-screen happenings. Travolta (A Civil Action) is a government agent who gets on the wrong side of terrorist Cage (Bringing Out The Dead). A bizarre turn of events sees them switch identities and it is sheer excitement all the way from there. More than anything else, the film is a showcase for the out-of-the-world talents of Hong Kong expert John Woo (Broken Arrow, Hard Target). Look out for his trademark slow-motion action sequences. ``A film that is dark, clever and blessedly berserk'' (Time). Violence never looked this good!
