"The most entertaining futuristic action film since the original Terminator."
-Ralph Novack, PEOPLE
Sylvester Stallone and Wesley Snipes go at it amid a dazzling cyber-future in this explosive hit. In 2032 archcriminal Simon Phoenix (Snipes) awakens from a 35-year deep freeze in CryoPrison to find serene, non-violent Los Angeles ready for the taking. Unable to deal with Phoenix's brutal 1990s style, officials seek an old-fashioned cop to fight old-fashioned crime. They revive Sgt. John Spartan (Stallone), unjustly serving a CryoPrison sentence because of his last encounter with Phoenix. Sandra Bullock and Benjamin Bratt (TV's Law and Order) also uphold the law in this "terrific mix of action and humor" (Joel Siegel, Good Morning America/ABC-TV).
Okay, so this is a really stupid Futuristic Action/Sci-Fi movie with a ridiculous plot. As if that weren't enough, it stars Sylvester Stallone, who isn't exactly know for his acting abilities. But, while it isn't good in the true sense of the word, it's still a fun watch and is among my cinematic guilty pleasures.
Rated R (MPAA)
