“THE ACTION FILM FROM 93”

published 19/08/2001

ProGreat film

ConsQuite old now

After being recommended this film, I finally sat down to watch it the other day, I have to say the film was brilliant and I was very impressed! Starring two very well known actors, Wesley Snipes and Sylvesture Stallone, this film is a pure classic. From this film, you can see that they work...

“Well and truly demolished”

published 22/08/2001

Progood, enjoyable romp, good effects

Consplot a little weak

If it ain't broke, then blow it up, destroy it, or set it one fire! That's what John Spartan would do. For some reason, "Demolition Man" has been run on Sky movies at least 3 times this month to my knowledge. Why you may ask yourself? The answer is quite simple - because it's pure unadulterated...

Sly is a rough yet effective cop who always gets his man even if it means causing vast destruction to do it. Snipes is a evil arch-villain. Sly captures Snipes and brings him in alive, but Snipes sets off an explosion and frames Sly for inadvertantly murduring hostages. Both are sentenced to be...

ConsStallone

It's been said that "The past is a foreign country. They do things differently there." This is Demolition Man's sci-fi heart, with a dash of cryogenics for criminals (Stallone's cop is wrongfully convicted) providing the means of (one-way) time travel. Demolition Man features Sylvester Stallone...

“Demolition Derby”

published 05/09/2000

ProGreat action and humour, a scary look at the world...

ConsStallone a bit wooden who who really minds?

A fun sci-fi film with the added bonus of Sandra Bullock in uniform, the story covers the capture of Simon Phoenix in 1997, a notorious criminal played excellently by Wesley Snipes, who is sentenced to cryogenic suspension and re-education. Also imprisoned is police officer John Spartan. 30 years...

Here's a turn up for the books, this was originally intended to be one of those 'dig-out-a-shit-film-and-tear-it-to-pieces' scenarios that I've become fond of writing lately, but lo and behold, I actually found myself quite enjoying Demolition Man. And besides, TheNeil says I'm no good at writing...

“Action film of the 90's”

published 30/10/2008

ProNon stop action

ConsA bit cheesy

In 1993, a certain Mr Stallone made a movie which, in my opinion, is right up with the Rocky films as his best role. Set in 1996, 3 years in the future from when it was made, the world has crumbled around people and criminals are running cities. One of the most persistent offender is Simon...

ConsNone here

Demolition Man was a film I encountered after hearing numerous glowing reviews from friends who had seen it and judging from the stars in it which include Sandra Bullock, Wesley Snipes, and Sylvester Stallone, I was certain that it was going to be at least a half decent film. The plot itself is...

“Demolition Man Film Review”

published 28/11/2009

ConsIt's Dumb

It's the year 2032. Los Angeles, now called San Angeles, is free from violent crimes and sexual contact between human beings. In fact, anything that you would deem a risk to human health at this point in time -- alcohol, caffeine, tobacco, spicy foods -- has been eliminated from society. It's a...

“Simon says get this film!”

published 18/11/2008

ProGreat action film

ConsDrags a touch in the middle, but nothing major

In 1993, Warner Brothers drafted in director Marco Bambilla to take the helm and make a futuristic action film set in 2032, named Demolition Man. The result was a smashing film, with favoured Sly Stallone as a no nonsense cop pitted against crime lord Wesley Snipes. The film did relatively well...

ProGreat mix of action, sci-fi and comedy, good cast

ConsRun of the mill plot

20th century Los Angeles, (1996.) Sylvester Stallone is a hard hitting cop dubbed the ‘Demolition Man’ as everything he comes across seems to get…well…demolished! His arch enemy Wesley Snipes frames Stallone, condemning them both to experimental, sub-zero imprisonment or...

"Demolition Man" is another example of a film that had a superb preview working for it; the preview made the movie look thought-provoking, even profound, and irresistible. I was hooked, and I had to see the movie. The preview fulfilled its purpose admirably, it got one more person to pay to see...

Product Information : Demolition Man (DVD)

Manufacturer's 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.
