First I will remind you what the movie Face Off was in case people don't know what movie it was or what it was about.





FBI Special Agent Sean Archer (played by John Travolta) has a personal vendetta against civil freelance terrorist Castor Troy (played by Nicolas Cage) after Castor killed Archer's son Michael while trying to assassinate Archer. Archer learns of Castor's brother, Pollux Troy (played by Alessandro Nivola), making arrangements for a private jet, and sets a trap to capture both Castor and Pollux. During the operation, Castor gloats about a bomb he has planted somewhere in Los Angeles, but he is knocked into a coma during the firefight. Though Castor and Pollux are captured, and the plans for the bomb found in Pollux's suitcase, Archer has no clue to its location. He agrees to undergo an experimental face transplant surgery, giving him the appearance of Castor; this process is only known to his immediate supervisors and Dr. Walsh who performs the surgery. The medical operation is a success: Archer's hair, muscles and other necessary physical parts are altered into Castor's and his face is switched with Castor's, whose now faceless head is bandaged and Archer's face is stored in a tank of water. Archer (now played by Nicolas Cage) is taken to an offshore high security penitentiary, Erewhon Prison, and meets with Pollux, eventually gaining his confidence to learn the bomb's location.


This was one of those science fiction movies that could never really happen in real life. Right?

Colombian Drug Lord Vanishes After Conviction… in the US!
www.madcowprod.com...



A major Colombian drug trafficker who willingly sought extradition to the United States—even offering a $40 million bribe to officials in Brazil to send him to the US—apparently knew what he was doing. After being extradited and convicted in Federal Court in New York of felony drug charges that could have put him in jail for life, he disappeared.


Yes a drug cartel guy who begs and bribes to be extradited to the US to face life in prison. Strange right? Well could he be a real life case of the movie Face Off? A spy who took some one else s identity and now will get his own face back?

Picture off Juan Carlos Abadia notice the scars that go all the way around his face.



Notice the eyes don't quiet match .



Here is a some real life face transplants.



Could it be the Drug cartel guy had one. And why would the US just let him disappear? Could he have been a agent who did a Face Off?

Yeah, it's called stealing someone's identity, and claiming you've lived what they have....it's an intellectual extension of using a human being in place of another human being, sort of like a human avatar. And if you're successful with it, you get the pay they earned living through what they lived.

Oops, sorry, got a little carried away there. Might be true though. *Shrug*.....People will do just about anything for money, and accept just about any principal for the latter or their survival.....We are innately geared this way, and manipulated this way. It's God awful, IMHO.

This brings to mind "The Departed" where your cover is so deep, kill the few that know about it, and your left out there, looking like a criminal, and worse.....

quite plausible
given the very high levels of "sanity" these "people" in the federal and intelligence agencies consistently demonstrate

note how in the movie we're supposed to cheer on the "hero"
for tearing off somebody's face off and wearing it as a disguise

in psychological terms this goes way beyond becoming the enemy you oppose
into outright black magic of the aztec variety
like orlando of the fleshless

perhaps like the agent in the movie, this person was taken advantage of and used due to a recent personal tragedy?

uggh talking about these"wholesome and sane" "people" always fills Me with disgust
and the desire to crush such underfoot,
like some loathsome insect/creature.

kind of like the borne ultimatum? heh Good tactic.

I am sure they can afford plastic surgeons and fake ID,documents etc.

I saw a similar case to this but it was a woman who had plastic surgery. Darn thing is, when they got her fingerprints, they were able to ID her. There are so many intracasies in and on the human body, if due diligence is done, the guilty will be found and accounted for.

Surely this wouldn't be possible in the real world. Since it is the shape of the skull that gives the face structure? At the end of the day skin is skin, I reckon you would end up looking for or less the same if you swapped faces with someone. Also things like varying hairlines and body types would make this impossible to pull off?

Btw one of my fav films

Those pictures are definitely showing what looks to be a facial transplant.
At least, that is what it looks like to me...

The looseness of the skin, the scars, the eyes look totally disfigured....etc.

Could it be true? Sure. These days, nothing is shocking.
