      Daniel C. M Really enjoyed the satire on this one, Stallone's character and the villain also have a perfect chemistry. Though this movie does not deserve to be 2 hours long and it's script fails hard some few times. I still wish for a prequel about the Demolition Man's previous adventures before he was frozen. A Die Hard-esque movie about that mall kidnapping case could be perfect. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 04/06/24 Full Review Benjamin L A forgetable action flick. It doesn't "predict" nearly as much as many people say it does. It has forgetable characters, a convoluted plot alongside a setting which frankly doesn't make much sense. The fight scenes, Stalone's quips and the villain carry the movie on their back. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/22/24 Full Review ERNIE A Who new in 93 they would nail the current social atmosphere. I love Stallone and all his movies. This is one of my favorites. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/16/24 Full Review Marcus E In 2024 this is excellent. I won't spoil it, but this movie hit on some things and I was thoroughly entertained. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/28/24 Full Review Forged S There's no more an iconic 90s Sylvester Stallone role than this. Stallone had already portrayed two wildly popular characters in John Rambo and Rocky Balboa, but at the time, both characters had outlived their usefulness and their popularity was starting to wane. Thus came along the creation of Demolition Man. A satirical action comedy based partly on Stallone's own feelings that he might have outlived his own usefulness, he plays the character John Spartan, a police officer who is literally from a different era brought back to take on a threat from his past. Back then the movie was fun and proved that regardless of his age, Stallone shouldn't be counted out, something he'd once again prove later in his career. Sadly, the movie doesn't quite hold up, mostly due to the change in modern storytelling sensibilities, despite satirical takes on the future ironically coming to pass, (notably, an society run by AI, calls for police to be less aggressive and the prominence of PC culture) . Let's just hope we all learn how to use the 3 seashells, so we're not laughed at. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/10/24 Full Review Shay C It's pretty good. Not quite as much of a visionary film as I was led to believe. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/10/24 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      David Ansen Newsweek Demolition Man is a movie that should have been fun, and isn't. Jan 29, 2019 Full Review Owen Gleiberman Entertainment Weekly Rated: B- Sep 7, 2011 Full Review Richard Schickel TIME Magazine Ultimately the script's often sharp social satire is drowned out by the noise and confusion. It is also undercut by casting virtually all the psychopathically murderous criminals as minority-group members. Jul 25, 2010 Full Review Elisa Guimarães Collider Still, dialogue-wise, the screenplay of Demolition Man is quite a thing to behold. The movie is full of extremely quotable one-liners and absurd exchanges that are made all the funnier by its performances... Jan 31, 2024 Full Review Mikel Zorrilla Espinof An essential action comedy with unforgettable performances from Sylvester Stallone and Wesley Snipes. [Full Review in Spanish] Rated: 4/5 May 17, 2021 Full Review Mike Massie Gone With The Twins It starts with explosions, gunfire, characters smashing through windows, careening down staircases, and lunging through five foot flames - all before the opening credits roll. Rated: 9/10 Sep 11, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews
