1993’s Demolition Man was led by two of the biggest names of that era, namely: Wesley Snipes and Sylvester Stallone. And again, there I certainly no doubt in the fact that the project had been considered to be one of the most unique projects to come out of the decade. The film spotlights bitter rivals LAPD Sergent John Spartan (played by Stallone) and crime lord Simon Phoenix (played by Snipes) beginning in 1996.
There is a hefty feud between them which ultimately leads to both of their incarcerations. In addition to that, we also witness that until 2032, inmates at the new California Cryo-Penitentiary are frozen in stasis. However, later Phoenix escapes and resumes his conquest. Now, it is up to Spartan to come with some amazing and effective idea to stop him as the external society is ill-equipped to take the necessary steps.
The responsibility of saving the fictional San Angeles is now imposed upon Spartan. Thus, this overall combination of action, romance, and even comedy for that matter, turned out to be excellent for audiences during that era. Under its belt, the movie went ahead to gross a hefty $159.1 million with a mere budget of $57 million.
In fact, the movie was such a massive success that for Stallone die-hards, the movie still stands out as a favourite. The movie still stands out as a stronger one on Rotten Tomatoes with a rating of 60% and certainly is taken to be a better than average sci-fi film by the viewers and critics.
