Mask of Death
release year:1996 (direct to video) genre:action viewing setting:home laserdisc, 7/27/97 what I expected:total cheese what I got:minimally entertaining action movie
synopsis:After a cop's girlfriend and best friend are killed by a vicious criminal, the cop takes the (dead) criminal's face and identity, in order to stop his operation.
impressions:Despite ripping off about half the plot of Face/Off, this was actually a watchable movie. acting:Lorenzo Lamas is...well, Lorenzo Lamas. He's got enough karate power to do convincing fight scenes, and enough presence to avoid being wooden.
final word:Worth watching a single time - the very definition of a C movie for me.
