Nearly all the SF premises are accorded the status of Andrew Dice Clay one-liners -- which means that they, along with the characters, keep changing from one scene to the next. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- Demolition Man is a significant artifact of our time or, at least, of this week.
New York Times
May 20, 2003
Rating: 4/5 -- Not for nothing does the film open on a screen-filling image of the Hollywood sign in flames, for it torches almost every supposition that a film made to showcase Sylvester Stallone and Wesley Snipes whomping on each other can only be brain-dead. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- The pleasant surprise about Demolition Man is that both the script, and Stallone, are funny; the film blends big-budget action and tongue-in-cheek humor in the way that Last Action Hero tried, and failed, to do. Full Review

...Stallone makes the most of a vehicle that gives him a satisfying stream of wisecracks and reaction shots....Snipes has a cartoonish good time...
Chicago Sun-Times
Oct 11, 1993
A noisy, soulless, self-conscious pastiche that mixes elements of sci-fi, action-adventure and romance, then pours on a layer of comedy replete with Hollywood in-jokes.

Demolition Man is a movie that should have been fun, and isn't. Full Review

Product Description:

San Angeles, a megalopolis stretching from Santa Barbara to San Diego, is the futuristic utopia of the politically correct. Red meat, salt, sugar, smoking and sex have all been outlawed. This spells h-e-l-l for John Spartan, a 20th century cop revived to chase down a 20th century terrorist on the loose in this sterile paradise.

Plot Synopsis:

In the 1990s, urban terrorist Simon Phoenix is imprisoned in ice for the protection of society. His arch-nemesis, police officer John Spartan, also suffers the same fate after Phoenix frames him for the deaths of a busload of innocent bystanders.
In 2032, in the renamed city of San Angeles, Phoenix is accidentally freed and begins a new crime spree on a now violence-free populace. Spartan is released to capture the one-man wrecking crew; in the process, he discovers the corruption beneath San Angeles' pristine surface. Through non-stop jokes and action, Spartan shows the docile, futuristic police force that the old ways are sometimes the best ways.

Production Notes:

  • Rated BBFC 15 by the British Board of Film Classification.
  • One anachronism did creep into the screenplay: when Simon Phoenix is considering which convicts to "thaw out," he comes across the frozen body of serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer, who had, however, been murdered in prison after the film was released.
