Salty Nerd Reviews: Demolition Man (1993)

Our controversial review of 1993's Demolition Man and how the film's disturbing predictions of the future are coming true.

Demolition Man is a 1993 science fiction action film directed by Marco Brambilla and starring Sylvester Stallone, Wesley Snipes, and Sandra Bullock. The film is set in a future where crime is virtually non-existent, and follows a police officer who is cryogenically frozen in 1996 and wakes up in 2032 to a deceptively utopian world.

The movie showcases a future where technology is advanced and crime is almost non-existent, but at the same time, it depicts a society where freedom is restricted and individuality is discouraged. The film is well-known for its action sequences, as well as its dark humor and satire. However, what was once the tale of a fictional future has become increasingly accurate, leading many to believe the film is more of a documentary than a piece of cult classic popcorn cinema.

Overall, Demolition Man is a thrilling action film set in a unique futuristic world that explores themes of crime, technology, and societal control. With a strong cast, engaging story, and memorable moments, the movie is a must-watch for fans of science fiction and action - and for people who use three sea shells after going to the bathroom.
