Yet another piece of evidence that RT is fucking stupid and useless for movie recommendations. (As if any more were needed)
"Face Off" wasn't bad (I rated it 53, Tier 5), but for a silly, fun movie, it just didn't have enough action, the humor was almost non-existent, and there were far too many scenes where Woo tries to inject serious emotional gravitas. (Which doesn't work with such an intrinsically stupid movie) If it had embraced its absurdity more, had more fights, and better humor, it would have been a really good action flick.
