Summary
Sean Archer is a tough and rugged FBI Agent. He is still grieving for his dead son, Michael. Archer believes that his son's killer is now his sworn enemy and happens to be the very powerful criminal, Castor Troy. Archer corners Castor. Their fight knocks Troy out cold. Archer finds out that Troy has planted a bomb that will destroy the entire city of Los Angeles and all of its inhabitants. The only other person who knows the bomb's location is Casor's brother Pollux, and he refuses to talk. Archer undergoes a special operation in order to switch faces with Troy. Archer, now looking like Troy, talks to Pollux. Troy regains consciousness and now wants revenge on Archer for taking his face. Not only is Troy ruining Archer's mission, but his personal life as well
