Audience Member A well-intentioned, albeit misguided bit of action movie cheese with one of Hollywood's classic overlooked action stars, Lorenzo Lamas. This movie defies all expectations, in a good and bad way, and I thoroughly enjoyed. I officially dub this movie so bad it's good! Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member This must of been where they got the Idea for face off. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member This schlocky 90s action movie features a plot somewhat similar to "Face/Off", with a cop having plastic surgery to look like a villain in order to take down a crime organization. Now this came out a year before the superior "Face/Off" and lacks the fun of that movie on every level. It stars Lorenzo Lamas as a guy who seems like a poor man's Steven Seagal, which is the saddest thing I've ever heard. The acting is pretty bad even from people I've seen do better work elsewhere...and the action is sloppy and lame. There were moments that were unintentionally hilarious, but for the most its just a terrible action movie. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review dave j Monday, March 11, 2013 (1995) Mask Of Death ACTION Straight-to-rental action cheapie vehicle starring Lorenzo Lamas playing two roles- one as Detective McKeena and the other as bad guy hitman Lyle Mason. Anyways, as a result of a botched exchange between two criminals regarding a gov't chip, Mason escapes by boat with Billy Dee Williams character as the FB agent in charage of the whole operation on his trail by means of helicopter but he had to be flown down because it was shot at. And while escaping by boat to a local beach where the McKeena coincidently happend to be at gets caught up in the middle resulting his wife to be killed during the crossfire by one of the two escapees. And if that wasn't enough a car crash ensures with one of them getting away with the chip on his hand, the Billy Dee Williams character then forces detective McKeena while still recovering in hospital to pose as the bad guy Mason since he looks similar to him even though the real one has been shot dead. The rest of the film dwells on this point whether he can get away with this new undercover disguise or not except that it's so badly made- no one really cares. .05 out of 4 Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Read all reviews
