Sylvester Stallone: Demolition Man – Reel Action

Last Updated on July 30, 2021

It's time for another instalment of "Reel Action", where we revisit some of the biggest and best action classics from all the icons of the genre. Of course, one of the undisputed kings of the action genre will always be Sylvester Stallone, and this week we're taking a look at the great sci-fi/action/comedy mash-up DEMOLITION MAN

In it, Stallone plays John Spartan, an unfairly cryogenically imprisoned cop thawed out in the year 2032 to catch his former arch-nemesis, Simon Phoenix, played by the iconic Wesley Snipes. Not only did this film pair Stallone and Snipes, but it was also a star-making performance by a young Sandra Bullock, who would nab a role in SPEED based on her performance in this, which would rocket her to the top of the A-list. So join us as we take a closer look at this Stallone classic and try to answer the immortal question that has vexed all of us fans of DEMOLITION MAN: the three seashells
