Was Demolition Man ahead of its time? Felt like a Marvel film.

    The meta humor in this film got me dying.

    The main character dynamics felt super modern.

    Wesley Snipes was baller all film as the villain.

    Action hold up pretty well. Had a that Marvel level of campiness without it being cringy corny.

    Damn seashells

    Some people say that Wesley Snipes played one of the best iterations of the Joker in Demolition Man.

    Simon fukking Phoenix was the man. Great film filled with so much humor. And a young Sandra could get it.

    Wesley Snipes character in this movie would been a perfect Killmonger. Ironic because he wanted to be Black Panther. But i think he would've actually been the goat killmonger.

    Yes, it's very rare to have action and comedy and blend so seamlessly. Also good old explosions and effects are going to age well generally.

    everyone talks about snipes in this but I think sandra bullock's performance is way underrated. the film basically hinges on her ability to sell this ridiculous world and she commits completely. and I'm not even a fan of hers

    Lowkey, this movie and Cliffhanger saved Stallone's career. After Oscar, Rocky V, and Stop or My Mom Will Shoot he was well on his way to being a B-List actor (which happened later in the early 2000s until he went back to A-List).

    Demolition Man did 160 million which is about 290 million in Today's dollars and Cliffhanger did 255 million which is 460 Million in today's dollars.

    I enjoyed Cliffhanger, some parts aged well while other parts didn't. The censorship around language I found to be funny. Also, looking back at it now...John Spartan was a character who I believe was convicted for being an overzealous cop.

    Good action movie, Wesley Snipes helped carry the movie, he was an excellent villain.
