Frozen in 1996, Simon Phoenix, a convicted crime lord, is revived for a parole hearing well into the 21st century. Revived into a society free from crime, Phoenix resumes his murderous rampage, and no one can stop him. John Spartan, the police officer who captured Phoenix in 1996, has also been cryogenically frozen, this time for a crime he did not commit. In 2032, the former cities of Los Angeles, San Diego and Santa Barbara have merged into peaceful, utopian San Angeles. Unable to stop him with their non-violent solutions, the police release Spartan to help recapture Phoenix. Now after 36 years, Spartan has to adapt himself to the future society he has no knowledge about.Written by
My personal favorite Stallone's best sci-fi futuristic action film of all time rigth there with Rambo
Demolition Man (1993) is one of the best epic classic science fiction/action film of all time! I love this film to death it is Stallone-Snipes futuristic science fiction action film from the 90's. They don't make like this movies anymore. I am a huge Stallone fan and Rambo is my favorite action movie franchise off all time with Cliffhanger and Demolition Man are two all time personal favorite Stallone action films of mine off all time. I know I didn't mention Cobra that was because I did not watch that film as kid I grow up watching Rambo trilogy, Cliffhanger and Demolition Man.
It is 21's century most dangerous cop VS 21's century most ruthless criminal. Aliens is my all time favorite science fiction action film Demolition Man is my second favorite science fiction action film off all time.
I love the action sequences in this film I love the opening scene: such a fantastic explosion in the beginning of the film when whole building explodes. Has been one of the biggest practical explosions in the film. All done for real no CGI. All the action sequences in the cryo-prison at the end the fight between this two. I love the shootouts in the museum. The car chase in which you have an old car and Stallone goes on a top of a futuristic car on the top. Yes the film has a satire but Total Recall, RoboCop and Starship Troopers also have satires in it so why Demolition Man shouldn't have humor or satire in it, is beyond me.
Sylvester Stallone is a renegade bad-ass L.A. cop John Spartan called the Demolition Man who break rules and does what he does best to catch the bad guys. He will blow things up to get the job done and he does in this movie. Demolition Man defies my childhood and I love this movie to death!
Wesley Snipes is Simon Phoenix a ruthless killer and a criminal and my opinion this is Wesley Snipes best movie ever. I love the futuristic world we see the future. I love Sandra Bullock in this movie she is a hot babe and really her best role. Right after Demolition Man, Sandra went and make Speed another action film. Sandra Bullock I love she is a great actress I love her in Miss Congeniality films, Speed and in many other films.
Directed by Marco Brambilla and produced by Joel Silver and yes Marco Brambilla directed really great, his best and only movie he ever directed. I wish Stallone would make movies like this today. Why can't the actor goe back to old school action movies again like he did with The Expendables 1 and 2. This is John Rambo Vs Blade. Yes I love Blade all three movies and I am a huge fan of this film. I know The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day are two of the best futuristic action science fiction films and they are good movies I like them so much. But I love Demolition Man movie way more, I love Aliens, Robocop, Predator I love those movies from the 80's so much.
I have this movie on Blu-ray and I am watching it constantly. It is Rated R and it is all practical done for real, great effects, great blood and even martial arts are in here. We see Stallone with two guns firing at Simon Phoenix. During the final shootout in the cryo-lab, Spartan is seen dual-wielding the Beretta 92FS and a Smith & Wesson 3914 in an epic battle between those two legendary icons I love it.
10/10 I miss action movies from the 90's like are Rapid Fire, Under Siege, Speed, Hard Target, Hard Boiled, Broken Arrow, Universal Soldier, Death Warrant, Double Impact, Showdown In Little Tokyo, Die Hard With A Vengeance, Die Hard 2, Cliffhanger, Terminator 2: Judgment Day and even way more 90's action movies. They don't make em like this anymore.
