Product Description

Product Description

Los Angeles in the year 1996. The streets are ruled by acts of violence and terror, nothing and nobody is safe. Simon Phoenix is one of the worst criminals that Los Angeles has ever seen, and only one man can stop him--L.A.P.D. officer John "Demolition Man" Spartan. When John apprehended Phoenix, he was surprisingly found as an accessory to the recent crime and was also sent to the "Cryo Prison". During John Spartan's sentence, Los Angeles' theme and society had dramatically changed from one of violence to one of peace. Phoenix, revived for a parole hearing managed to escape and uses Los Angles to his advantage. The police are unable to stop him with their non-violent solutions and have no choice but to let out John Spartan to stop him. Now, Spartan not only has to stop Phoenix, but to adapt himself to the future society he has no knowledge about.

From Amazon.co.uk

Searching for new directions, Sylvester Stallone starred in this farcical, 1993 SF piece about an ex-cop (Stallone) freed from 36 years of forced hibernation to help catch a criminal (Wesley Snipes) who released himself from a similar incarceration. The futuristic story finds Los Angeles a sea of Taco Bells and enforced peace and within that satiric overview Stallone's character becomes a gun-toting fish out of water. The film plays like a live-action cartoon and while there is nothing particularly wrong with that, Demolition Man is a rather flat experience. The irony of a peaceable society that both requires and despises its bloody saviours has been captured far more profoundly in movies like Dirty Harry. Sandra Bullock costars. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Finally, we get the uncut version for home viewing! :)

The UK DVD is missing two hits to the head of Stallone in the final fight, along with a double ear-clap (the BBFC used to cut these routinely, even from 18 films!) for fear of imitabilty. However, they have seen the stupid and ridiculous errors of their ways and this Blu-ray edition is fully uncut :)

Enjoy - its a clever, funny, thrilling 90s actioner.

The nineties were famous for its action movies and the heroes who punched and shot their way through them. In the `friendly' rivalry between Stallone and Schwarzenegger, they both had their hits and misses. Demolition Man was not Stallone's biggest hit, but, then again, it certainly wasn't a miss.

Watching it nearly twenty years after it was made is still a joy. It's still, loud, proud, blatantly tongue-in-cheek in places and a great watch. Stallone is the cop, frozen in time along with his arch criminal nemesis, Snipes, and both of them defrosted in a (supposedly) utopian future, only to rage havoc once again.

There are plenty of jokes to go alongside the action and Sandra Bullock is great as the plucky lead (and you can see why her performance led on to her true breakthrough role in Speed a year later). And Nigel Hawthorne should also get a nod for his `futuristic version of Sir Humphrey' in San Angeles - great to see such a serious character actor trading insults with Hollywood's hard men!

If you like your action movies fun and light-hearted then Demolition Man stands up to the test of time. It may not be Rambo, Rocky or the Terminator franchise, but it deserves its place in nineties-action history (even if just for making the audience ask the question `Just what exactly was the deal with the `three seashells'?).

His career faultering somewhat, Sylvester Stallone decided to try somthing new and branched out into the realmes of sci fi, this being his first attempt, 'Judge Dredd' in 1995 being his second. While most people including some of the fans shunned it, i personally think that it is a breety good film all round. It's a typical Stallone film, with plenty of guns, explosions, a bad guy, and of course a hero which is Stallone himself in the form of John Spartan.
John Spartan is a cop who has been on the trail of master criminal Simon Phoenix for two years, and when he finally does catch him, the building that they are in blows up killing thirty or so innocent people. Of course Spartan is blamed for the incident, resulting in him being incarcerated in a cryogenic prison for thirty odd years.
Finally he is released in the next century, in the year 2032 where the world is very different. All harmful things have been made illegal; smoking, drinking, contact sports, and even salt etc, sex has become a non contact affair as well (much to the dismay of Spartan) and people even recieve criminal credits for swearing, somthing that Spartan (and phoenix) get a lot of.
The reason for his early release is so that he can once again catch Phoenix who has escaped from the cryogenic facility and is causeing havok in the streets of the new San Angeles (San Dieago and LA have merged). None of the police force can handle him and only the outmoded ways of John Spartan and the help of Lenina Huxley to show him the new ways, can save the city from certain peril.
Stallone is perfect in his role as the tough 'old fashioned' cop who is released from Cryosleep to help the new SAPD.

When this movie was released, it went head-to-head with Slys old rival Arnie, and his 'Last Action Hero'. Sly won. Not only with box office, but with the critics too. Where Arnie's effort was far too souless, the real joy in DM is the irony and comic elements. Watching Sly's traditional screen persona get shot down and ridiculed at every turn, must have been terrific fun for him. The action is good, the story is ok. Its the design and small ideas that win through. The 'no contact' sex helmets, the music charts being old commercial jingles and, best of all, the President Schwarzenegger Memorial Library (not as ridiculous these days!!).
All very clever and witty. Sly is terrific, relaxed and cool. Sandra looks like heaven and its a great piece of intelligent escapism. Give it a go.

The unmistakably 90s action/sci-fi cult classic arrives on Blu-ray to inspire us all with joy joy feelings!

I last saw 'Demolition Man' on a VHS recorded off TV. So to say I was impressed by the Blu-ray would be an understatement. Warner Bros have clearly put some effort into this transfer, as it's one of the best catalogue releases I've seen.

Firstly, I did not pick up on any digital noise reduction. There's a VERY fine layer of grain covering the image throughout, lending a nice and filmic quality to the picture. Close-ups display an excellent amount of facial detail, especially on Stallone and Snipes, but even on the smooth-faced citizens of San Angeles (a futuristic makeup choice, or so I am led to believe). While there are more than a few soft shots here and there, the overall level of quality is pin-sharp. You might just be able to make out the small print on that 'Lethal Weapon 3' poster in Huxley's office.

I also did not detect any edge enhancement; and even if there is some then it must be barely noticeable. Black levels also appear well resolved, with plenty of clear shadow detail.

My only real boggle with the picture quality would be its skin tones. For most of the film, everyone appears overly tanned (orange, even). But I'm not sure if this is more to do with the source material than it is a fault with the Blu-ray transfer, so I may be fretting over nothing. Otherwise, colours are strong throughout.

'Demolition Man's' DTS-HD 5.1 audio track doesn't disappoint either. Elliot Goldenthal's score benefits appropriately, while the various sonic qualities appear to be correctly balanced.
