@Xanina,
Maybe take off the words "very much".

His face resembles the face of his father.

"Definitely", "unquestionably", "remarkably", "noticeably",.. ?

Try placing the word(s) after the word "face".

Or maybe try no adverbs,...

@Xanina,

Yes, there's nothing wrong with it.

We'd probably say "He looks very like his dad. A "chip off the old block"".

@anonymously99,

There's nothing grammatically wrong with it, even if it does not sound very idiomatic. The question was about grammar.

@anonymously99,

It's okay to disagree, if you must. Canvass more opinion, see what comes up.

Your answer very much resembles the answer of a seeker of wisdom and truth.
