Added DiffLines:

* NotSoBadassLongcoat: When Castor arrives at the airport to meet Pollux at the beginning of the film, the 3/4 length suit coat he wears is close to, but not quite, a BadassLongcoat. Instead of being an important part of his wardrobe, it's briefly worn once, then immediately replaced with a standard suit coat. Although the coat is used for DramaticWind during its brief time on screen, it is not used with regard to the equally important element of {{Hammerspace}}.

* MeaningfulName: Pollux and Castor Troy are named for the Gemini twins. Castor also shares his name with a type of legume people often mistake for being some form of bean. Just by donning Archer's face, Castor is able to fool ''everyone'' into thinking he's the good guy.

''Face/Off'' is the second American HeroicBloodshed film by Hong Kong director Creator/JohnWoo, starring Creator/JohnTravolta and Creator/NicolasCage playing an FBI agent and terrorist, as [[ArchEnemy arch enemies]] fighting it out to see who can use [[GunsAkimbo the most guns at the same time]]. Oh, and then they switch places to save LosAngeles.

* HeelFaceTurn: Zig Zagged with Sasha, which [[RedemptionEqualsDeath costs her life]].who helps Archer and even saves both his life and his wife's life; but ''thinks'' she's helping Troy and fighting against Archer.
