Ok but can not compare to John Woos Hong Kong films. However it is not a bad action film.

I hope Adam Smith was fired for that 5 star review. Over the top, Over acted and Over Long and in the end fucking boring if this is a five star film then North By Northwest is a 15 star movie

I'll say this straight out: The story rocks, the action kicks ass, the acting is amazing, the dialogue is sound, and Cage/ Travolta are the ultimate dueling duo.
Watch this Now!!

Definitely in the top 5 best action movies EVER. Top of the range performance from Cage and Travolta, brilliant storyline....i'm lost for words. AMAZING!

This was an enjoyable film, good performances but the action scees were surprisingly slightly dissapointing due to the excess of the slo-mo. Also, the story is just too far fetched but there is a great deal of depth to the film which is surprising for an action movie and it deals well with themes of identity. Also, there is lenty of layers of both dramatic irony and just plain irony within the film. Travolta and Cage showcase dedicated performances. The films flaws mainly lie with the action and story but it is a worthwhile watch.

A truley beautiful piece of work directed by none other John Woo.Travolta and Cage are exceptional, performing as their own characters and each other's. A must see for anyone who appreciates fine masterpieces of work. What are you waiting for ........I want his Face...........................OFF!

Well the amount of times I have seen this film on GOLD but not watched it well I wish I had. This is one of my top 5 films of all time. I thought that the story was very far fetched but hey that's the fun of it. I loved how it opened with a bang and who the story progressed. The cast were amazing and played the character really well. I thought the twists and turns of the story were really well written and the film overall was executed brilliantly. I would highly recommend this film if you love action films, for me this film is a classic and also if you like John Travolta or Nicholas Cage then this is a film for you.

Very flawed, dumb and OTT, but oh so insanely, entertainingly and gloriously so. Strictly the kind of movie where you turn off your brain and just have fun. Cage AND Travolta hamming it up is truly a sight to be seen.

Maybe my favourite action movie all-time. Cool concept, great story, awesome OTT performances from Travolta and Cage, and artistically it's maybe the best from Woo - uncontrolled slow motion and classy shots. And it lasts with time: definitely a 5 star movie.
