Mask of Death is a 1996 American-Canadian action movie directed by David Mitchell and starring Lorenzo Lamas as a criminal Lyle Mason and a Seattle PD Det. Dan McKenna. In the opening scene McKenna's wife is killed by Mason's companion Frank Dalilo (Conrad Dunn) while McKenna himself is shot in face by Mason but survives. Mason perishes in a auto crash while Dalilo manages to escape, not knowing about the fate of his companion. FBI Agent Jeffries (Billy Dee Williams) finds out that McKenna has a similarity in face with Mason and suggests McKenna to undergo a plastic surgery in order to get Mason's face, infiltrate in crime ring and find Dalilo who possesses a stolen top secret military chip.

Note: the movie was filmed in Vancouver, British Columbia, which affected the choice of screen guns.
