The future isn't big enough for the both of them--the 21st century's most dangerous cop and the 21st century's most ruthless criminal. Sandra Bullock stars as a 21st century cop who resorts to desperate measures to apprehend a killer: she reanimates a no-holds-barred 20th century cop who had been sentenced to cryoprison, a cop known in an earlier century as the Demolition Man. When psychopathic killer Simon Phoenix (Wesley Snipes--Blade films) escapes cryoprison during a mandatory parole hearing, only officer Lenina Huxley (Bullock--Crash, Miss Congeniality films) has a play to stop a criminal rampage from causing havoc in her now-peaceful world: free the one man capable of stopping Phoenix--officer John Spartan (Sylvester Stallone--Rocky films, Rambo films). Now, two men from another time bring a level of nonstop action long unseen in this future, idyllic world.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: A better-than-average sci-fi shoot-em-up with a satirical undercurrent, Demolition Man is bolstered by strong performances by Sylvester Stallone, Wesley Snipes, and Sandra Bullock.

Common Sense Says
Violent, profanity-filled '90s sci-fi action movie.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Demolition Man is a 1993 science fiction movie in which archenemies Sylvester Stallone and Wesley Snipes live in a sanitized and helplessly pacifist society. The violence is constant and unrelenting: gun battles, fistfights, martial arts violence, car chases, building explosions, and in one scene, an eyeball removed from a prison warden's eye socket. The profanity is also nonstop: frequent use of "f--k" and its variations and many other curse words, as well as various euphemisms for sex. There is some brief nudity; female breasts are shown. Some iffy humor includes use of the word "f-g" and a joke referencing serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer. There's drug, alcohol, and cigarette use by characters. While the movie satirizes consumer culture, it also has quite a bit of product placement. While there's a somewhat satirical exploration of themes like free will, behavior conditioning, consumerism, and human nature, the excessive action movie mayhem and profanity drown it out.
