He decides to get a facial transplant of Cage’s face and pursues pays a visit to the latter’s friend. He convinces him that he is indeed Cage and as a result he gets the information needed. Cage on the other side undergoes the same facial transplant and transforms into John. He moves in with John’s family who do not suspect his identity. He detonates the bomb and hence acquires outmost respect from John’s peers. John now Cage sends a dangerous gang after John. The gang attacks the headquarters thus many people die. He is armed at the burial and intends to cause harm. The duo later on meet at the beach and John stabs Cage with a spear gun leading to his untimely death. John is rescued after his wife confesses of his mysterious identity to the police. He is finally with his family.
The film has great scenes. It’s laughable when John visits prison to see Cage’s friend. How he acts when demanding for answers is funny. His new appearance after the facial transplant looks funny. The grin on his face is absolutely laughable. What’s more is how he imitates Cage. This is ridiculous. It’s funny how he threatens him especially when he whispers into his ears. It’s emotional to watch John lie besides the body of his lifeless son. The church scene is weird and funny.
The film has some scary bits too. An example is the fighting scene at the beach. Here there is a dangerous exchange of weapons between John and Cage. There is also a tense moment when John whispers to Cage’s ears. Here the latter causes havoc and attempts to tear down the cell. This fails after police intervention. The prison scene is messy and filled with fights. The way Nicolas claims that he slept with John’s wife leaves his counterparts in tears. He also makes a scary face to John’s daughter. In the end John and his family is safe and sound.
