Stallone in one of his better roles as a cop frozen in suspended animation as part of a jail sentence. He is awakened several years later because his arch-nemesis (Wesley Snipes)was also awakened from suspended animation and the pacifist future cops have no clue how to stop him. Stallone's rough ways do not bode well for those in charge but he is worshipped as a hero by his new partner (Sandra Bullock). Great exchanges of dialogue and action scenes between Stallone and Snipes. A great deal of comic relief as old commercial jingles have become popular music and Stallone doesn't know how to use the future bathroom or bond with a future woman (Bullock).

I am not a big Schneider fan but he was actually entertaining in this one.

The movies IQ is set a shade or two above defrost
Ever see a movie that looked so dumb, you heard was dumb and then you see it and it isn't all that dumb?  Step on up to see Sly and Snipes tear apart the crapsaccharine world of a future LA.      In the "future" of LA in the year 1996, crime apparently was so bad the Police needed Humvees and the Hollywood sign is ablaze.  Stallone plays John Spartan who is a tough cop who has finally apprehended his nemesis Simon Phoenix played by Wesley Snipes.  …

Wreckless cop and violent criminal are cryogenically frozen and wake up in a peaceful society to continue they're blood feud. Real smart in some places even when it's beind pretty dumb.

Cornball action movie with laughs, action and silly goings on, one of them is that Taco Bell is the only restaurant. Stallones made worse.

This was a great film about the future which is never talked about. Much Better than Ideocracy!

About this movie

Wiki

Demolition Man is a 1993 American dystopian action film directed by Marco Brambilla, and starring Sylvester Stallone, Wesley Snipes, Sandra Bullock, Nigel Hawthorne and Denis Leary.

The film is a story about two men, one an evil crime lord and the other a risk-taking police officer, who are cryogenically frozen in the year 1996 and reawakened to face each other in 2032. Los Angeles, now called San Angeles, has become part of a planned city where violence is eliminated from mainstream society. Some aspects of the film allude to Aldous Huxley's dystopian novel, Brave New World.[2]

Demolition Man grossed $58,055,768 by the end of its box office run in North America and $159,055,768 worldwide.
