1'''Release:''' January 7, 2014'''Film:''' ''Film/FaceOff'''''Tagline:''' Let Creator/NicolasCage Month begin!!!This review contains examples of:* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: In-universe, NC thinks Eve knew full well Castor was in the form of her husband, but didn't report it cause he gave her one hell of a footrub.* CaptainObviousAesop: Parodied in-universe in the shootout scene:--> '''Critic''': If there's any message that this movie is trying to get across, it's "don't put kids in the middle of a violent shootout between FBI agents and terrorists for hire". I don't know how many movies we have to make before America gets that, but clearly we're not there yet.* DisturbedDoves: Their relative absence in the movie from such scenes as Archer's first shootout with Castor, the jailbreak scene, and so on, becomes a RunningGag.* HamToHamCombat: The fact that this is what is going to happen between Nicolas Cage and John Travolta has the Critic so ecstatic he needs to pause for a moment to relish it.* OverlyLongGag: TitleDrop edition.* [[invoked]]SoBadItsGood: Like ''Commando'', this is his ultimate opinion on the movie.* SoundtrackDissonance: The Critic considers the idea of playing music to keep Castor's son calm a lame attempt by the director to be artsy that wouldn't do anything in real life.* TakeThat: When a helicopter joins in the chase on Castor Troy's aircraft:-->'''Man on loudspeaker:''' We ''will'' make you do ''Film/GhostRider 3''!-->'''Cage:''' Oh come on, guys! I pissed fire in the last one! Even I thought that was kind of stupid!
