Audience Reviews for Mask of Death


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!

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.
