Arguably two of John Woo's bigger Hollywood movies ... Both are mindless summer flicks and while I like (yes, sorry, sorry) M:I 2 for its shots of Sydney, Face/Off wins for a better sense of whackness.
I also like M:i-2. (No apologies.) I also prefer Face/Off.
I have no shame in declaring that "M:I-2" is my favorite of the "Mission: Impossible" features, because it's *fun*. That said, I think Travolta and Cage have more on-screen charisma than Cruise, et al., so I'm going with "Face/Off." It could easily go either way, though.
It is fun, you're right. M:I3 is my fave though. As for these, Face/Off wins. One of the best summer action flicks of the 90's. Cage is just a blast to watch in that.
Travolta and Cage were too good to lose here.
Like everyone else here, MI:2 is a lot of fun, and probably my favourite in the series (I'm not a big fan of the Mission Impossible films), but the two leads in Face/Off are so much fun to watch play each other. One of both the actors' better roles.
I'm a defender or of the meek and stupid when it comes to nutty, brain-fried action movies, but MI:2 I cannot defend. If you want to make a movie that retarded, you need the right actors. Tom Cruise is excellent, but he's just not built for movie buffoonery. For that, Nic Cage is your man. He does with his face what Tome Cruise's slow-mo hair could never do.
