Correction & Omission / rewrite suggestion
I don't know how to say this exactly, but even tho I love this movie for how bat shit it is, I would maybe love it more if it made just a little more sense in one specific area. Sean Archers decision to go through with the face switch, makes absolutely zero sense. No one would ever agree to do something that risky and insane, unless they were a maniacal psychopath with nothing to lose, which this movie happens to have. Why not write it so that Castor Troy kidnaps Archer, and switches faces to infiltrate the FBI, and simultaneously send his nemesis to prison? That way you wouldn't have to worry about why Archer lies to his family risking so much for a plan that is anything but foolproof, why Troy wakes up, why no one else was informed about the face switching, you could still do the prison escape and family switch, You could even make it so Archer accidently kills Troy's kid, giving him reason for the crazy revenge plot and making a good person have to wrestle with a more complicated emotional arc, I think every aspect about the reverse scenario is much much better, but of course I do it's my idea.
