When John apprehended Phoenix, he was surprisingly found as an accessory to the recent crime and was also sent to the “Cryo Prison”.

Now, Spartan not only has to stop Phoenix, but to adapt himself to the future society he has no knowledge about.

One review

  • Sylvester Stallone has tried many times to lose his macho manliness by playing in films that involve silly plots and characters. Most of them are not good movies, however he has made a couple comedic action films that do stand out from the rest. “Demolition Man” is one of these films. There are many elements that help this movie excel past other comedies action flicks. The characters are funny to watch and listen to, the action is very good, and the special effects are well done. Wesley Snipes is a trained martial artist and his style of fighting is really neat to watch although it is quick. I felt like the film could’ve had more action scenes but for the most part I enjoyed it. Also, Sandra Bullock is extremely cute in this. What made this movie funny was the dialog. Because the story takes place in a futuristic society, much of the language was changed. Overall, this movie was really good, better than expected!
