Revived into a society free from crime, Phoenix resumes his murderous rampage, and no one can stop him.

Sylvester Stallone has stated, in interviews, that the idea behind the three seashells was that two were used like chopsticks or to clamp together to pull waste out of the body and the third was used to scrape what was left over. No explanation was made about how they were to be cleaned or sanitized between uses. See more »
When John Spartan takes out his knitting, we can see that he has a ball of yarn and two regular knitting needles. The next day he gives a cabled sweater to Lenina Huxley. There was not enough yarn in that ball to make an adult's sweater, and two needles are not enough to do cabling, which requires sections of the work to be crossed on a separate needle in order for the cables to be crossed. It is also highly unlikely that a person could knit an entire sweater in one night, as a cabled sweater typically takes between 24 and 50 hours to knit. See more »
What you're telling me to do is violate a direct order. I'm supposed to take you back to the Cryo Prison.
Listen, Huxley. I just know okay. I'm gonna find Phoenix and I'm gonna put him on ice or that's where *I'm* gonna be. After that, I'm gonna turn all of my attention to that fuckin' Cacteau.
Enhance your calm, John Spartan.
Look, I'm tired of enhancing my calm.

Wait, you're opening the pod to the depths of wasteland?
The real reason ...

Demolition Man is just good, goofy fun. You plop yourself down when nothing else is on and watch Sylvester Stallone and Wesley Snipes blow up everything around them. Snipes plays Simon Phoenix over the top and that's exactly where he's supposed to be. Stallone has some good lines in this film, and he's actually a funny guy when he plays things straight. Of course, no action film would be complete without the prerequisite snappy one liners, outlandish action and bullets flying everywhere. A silly, but fun film to watch.
