    Synopsis


    Demolition Man
    The plot of this action film begins in 1996, with Los Angeles in a violence-crazed conflagration. One of the LAPD's most notorious cops, John Spartan (Sylvester Stallone), known as "the demolition man," is in hot pursuit of blonde-haired psychopath Simon Phoenix (Wesley Snipes), who is so nasty he even kills sometimes just because he feels cranky. John captures Simon, but not before Simon kills innocent hostages. John is blamed for the deaths of the hostages, and both he and Simon are cryogenically frozen to remove their brand of ultra-violence from a society that is simply just too violent. The film shifts to the future world of 2032, where Los Angeles has become a megalopolis called San Angeles. There is no poverty, Arnold Schwarzenegger was (at one time) president of the United States, and Taco Bell is the sole survivor of the Franchise Wars. Into this peaceful and bland society, Simon is summarily defrosted by reigning benevolent dictator Dr. Cocteau (Nigel Hawthorne) to have Simon murder Edgar Friendly (Denis Leary), the leader of a group of underground rebels. But Cocteau bites off more than he can chew when the melted-down Simon proceeds to go on a murder-and-looting spree. Reluctantly, Cocteau defrosts John to hunt down his old adversary. As John adjusts to self-driving cars and having sex wearing helmets, he pairs up with Lenina Huxley (Sandra Bullock), a bored cop with a nostalgic fascination for 20th-century culture. ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi

      Can you believe it's been 25 years? Even after all this time, it's still very entertaining to watch. Although the actual story and action are straight-up 90's popcorn style, and not very good, they are easy to consume and sometimes that's what the doctor ordered. The cast is great (especially Sandra Bullock) and the acting is mostly good. I highly recommend it to new watchers. My son, who's 17, loved it. Also, it's interesting that this suffers from the Back to the Future syndrome where you chuckle about the idea of the future in the past. Highly recommended!

      A fun movie if you don't take it seriously. A blonde Wesley Snipes and a cute Sandra Bullock costar in this futuristic movie that has banished violence. Stallone is Stallone in this and we find out that Taco Bell won the fast food wars (product placement). Of course Taco Bell is fine dining in the future is a prime example of an oxymoron. Haha. Overall I enjoyed this movie, if you like Stallone action flicks, you will like this one.

      Sly And Snipes battle it out for the fight of the future.Somehow after doing the awful Judge Dredd he's back doing another comic-book hero called John Spartan(Sylvester Stallone) also known as the "Demolition Man".He must track down a ruthless killer from his time named Simon Phoenix(Wesley Snipes).With Sandra Bullock giving a charming performance,the action is fast-paced,and Denis Leary's humor brings the comedy relief.

      Demolition Man is not only a great Stallone flick that features Wesley Snipes, it's probably the only movie that I can tolerate Sandra Bullock in. She actually does well at playing a cute and naive sexpot. Stallone is actually very funny in this one. The blu-ray looks great, btw. Pick this one up next time Best Buy offers it up dirt cheap.

      I remember being 13 and seeing this movie in theatres when it was first released. I don't think it should have gotten the poor reviews it did. Is it oscar worthy? No. But it is a fun action movie. So pop some popcorn, turn your mind off, don't over think it and enjoy.

      For a 25YO film, it was still funny in its caricature of a future Utopian society with a young Rocky-esque Stallone battling a Snipes psychopath. Bullock looks great and the film is worth a watch just for some of the one-liners.
