Face/Off is seeming less and less farfetched

This is a somewhat long, but fascinating read:

There have been other face transplants, but none as complete as this one. Pretty amazing.

Haven't watched Face/Off since running it theatrically, but remember that face-trading scene was painful to watch. All the other stuff that went on off-camera to make one guy look like the other and vice-versa was pretty painful also.

With the 10th season coming up, I would hope you think it's real.

The acting was pretty painful too.
