Plot - Caster Troy (Nicholas Cage and also kind of John Travolata) and Sean Archer (John Travolate/Nicholas Cage) were never exactly likely to be the best of friends, what with Caster being a criminal and Sean an FBI agent.
It is this toxic blend of bad-ass adrenaline-fueled action, and a storyline that is both clever and heavier to take in, than your usual dumb blockbusters because this isnt any brainless action film, this is a faceless action film, holding much more character than you would think in terms of how that term is usually used.
In his first two American action films, his action sequences were a bit stilted and generic, but here he just let's loose with beautifully filmed scenes of gunplay, hand-to-hand combat, Mexican standoffs, boat chases and prison escapes.
