Demolition Man Trailer

In 1996, Simon Phoenix used psychopathic crime to kidnap several hostages from a busload and take shelter in an abandoned building. LAPD Sergeant John Spartan (nicknamed the “Demolition Man”) conducted a raid of this location, eventually capturing Phoenix, but not before his explosive-prone psychopath set off explosives and destroyed it all with explosive devices he planted inside it.

Starring Sylvester Stallone & Wesley Snipes

The coronavirus pandemic has made real life feel a lot like the 1996 Hollywood blockbuster Demolition Man. Starring Sylvester Stallone as a cop and Wesley Snipes as a crime lord, respectively, their bodies were cryogenically frozen at that point, only to emerge again and begin creating chaos when released back into society in 2032—society being helpless against stopping them!

Cryo Jail is the central set in this movie, an eye-catching three-story circular structure that houses criminals frozen in hockey puck-shaped glass cells. Yet what really resonates with target audience of heavy-lidded 17-year-old headbangers isn’t set decor; what matters for this audience of 17-year-old head-bangers is testosterone-pulsing action scenes: standing alongside rookie director Marco Brambilla and veteran stunt coordinator Charlie Picerni, Stallone and Snipes watch their stunt doubles rehearse a fight scene: flipping barrels over huge barrels, smashing through walls while trading uppercuts or roundhouse rights against each other until all four characters meet.

Both actors appear to be enjoying themselves immensely, yet the movie fails on any level other than low-brow popcorn entertainment. It is noisy, soulless, and self-consciously designed to please both deep thinkers drawn to science fiction with loud, bone-crushing violence while also trying to please those looking for some Hollywood in-jokes; unfortunately, neither strategy succeeded, and such big stars as Emma Stone and Bradley Whitford wasted away their talent on this disappointing endeavor.

Directed by Marco Brambilla

Demolition Man is Marco Brambilla’s debut feature film after already becoming known for directing commercials. It follows Woody Allen’s idea of freezing two people together and then defrosting them so they pursue each other. While not an entirely unique take on this theme, there are some humorous ideas here, some decent action sequences, and some amusing electronic sex jokes that add humor.

Sylvester Stallone plays John Spartan, an LA cop whose macho bravado earned him the moniker “Demolition Man.” As he goes after Simon Phoenix (Wesley Snipes), Spartan becomes known by all as “Demolition Man.” After an attempt at arresting Phoenix fails in 1996, Spartan becomes cryogenically frozen while Phoenix manages to flee into 2032; when Phoenix reappears as Spartan’s target in 2032, he plans on killing him once and for all!

Demolition Man is known for its explosive explosions and clever comedic one-liners, but the film also contains some subtle social commentary. It depicts a dystopic authoritarian utopia where everything from smoking to spicy food is illegal, and government machines bill citizens for swearing and cursing. Demolition Man also pokes fun at corporate greed, using Taco Bell as a metaphor for fast food chains in its joke about “Franchise Wars.”

Demolition Man isn’t one of the worst movies ever produced, but it doesn’t stand out as particularly good. Its main flaw lies in relying too heavily on Sylvester Stallone’s comic timing and instinct, neither of which are particularly strong; this saps away some of its life, while an actor like Eddie Murphy might have worked better with its script.

Written by Dan Waters

Demolition Man is an entertaining sci-fi action movie written by the same writers behind Heathers and Batman Returns that seeks to appeal to both intellectually curious viewers and less analytical audiences who just want mindless violence. With Sylvester Stallone bungee jumping from helicopters and Joel Silver exploding buildings, this movie delivers. However, it also manages to strike an amusing balance by making fun of its genre in subtle ways. The society depicted in the film is marked by social isolation: characters don’t shake hands or engage in physical contact, business meetings are held via videoconference, and toilet paper no longer exists. Today, its social commentary appears less direct, with Sandra Bullock’s character surprising Stallone with VR sex (now seeming prophetic given coronavirus outbreaks).

The plot follows LAPD Sergeant John Spartan as he is cryogenically frozen along with Simon Phoenix in 1996 and revived in 2032 to help police track him down. It proposes that Los Angeles has become a corporate dystopia where criminal activity and subversive behavior are no longer tolerated, leading to many comedic moments as Spartan engages with this new society he finds himself living in.

Starring Sandra Bullock

At the time of its release, Sandra Bullock had already become a well-known star. Following a minor role in the 1987 thriller Hangmen and her breakthrough performance in the 1994 drama Speed, Sandra became one of the leading Hollywood actresses. Since then, she has gone on to appear in many more movies, including romances While You Were Sleeping and Hope Floats and comedies Miss Congeniality and Two Weeks Notice.

Demolition Man found her playing Leigh Anne Touhy, an independent Memphis woman who welcomes Michael Oher into her home and helps him become an exceptional football player. It was both critical and box office success; subsequent movies by Bullock also explored these genres.

Demolition Man is still enjoyable to view despite its low budget and straightforward script, thanks to Sylvester Stallone and Wesley Snipes, who give memorable performances that mock their tough guy persona, Wesley Snipes as the manic baddie, and Denis Leary with his famous motor-mouthed rant comedy routine that made him famous.

Marco Brambilla directed and produced this movie. He is known for making classic horror flicks like Night of the Demons and Cannibal Holocaust. His cast included Charles S. Dutton, Richard Harris, Judith Light, and Joel Silver, producer of hits like the Lethal Weapon and Die Hard franchises.
