Codes and ConventionsI like this type of movie because after setting the scene the film involves Villains Heroes Big explosions Guns Threatening situations Fights Chase scenes Challenging SituationsThis type of film keeps you on the edge of your seat and wanting more. 7.

Face Off (John Woo, 1997) Star Theory The film was successful because it cast stars such NicholasCage and John Travolta. Reception Theory The film was a typical action/thriller/sci-fi which wastargeted at the general cinema going audience. Intertextuality The film was a success because it showed the hard hittingbattle of good vs evil. 12. Conclusion In conclusion I think these films are similar because both good and evil in the films eventuallybecomes quite personal and they both star actors who share equal amount of fame althoughI think that in terms of box office, the gross amount is totally different and MIB 3 has anunfair advantage because of this as it is a sequel movie to the previous so people havealready experienced an MIB movie before. As for face off it was its only film and it was quiteunique for its genre and this may of seemed like a gamble at the time the film was beingproduced and also the films are a different certificate which means that as MIB was a PGduring cinema showing, it means a lot more wider range of audience could attend whereasface off was certificated 18 when it was first shown in cinemas. MIB was made 12 years after face off was made as well meaning that another unfairadvantage of it being better quality, neater editing and effects due to the advancing intechnology.
