Demolition Man | 1993 | R | - 3.7.6

Wesley Snipes stars as an old-fashioned bad guy in a future where all is harmonious, and Sylvester Stallone stars as the old-fashioned cop who must catch him.

SEX/NUDITY 3 - One virtual reality sex scene, in which the participants never touch. They contribute sounds of arousal, and we see nanosecond flashes of a woman's breasts. A discussion takes place about the exchange of bodily fluids during sex, and the diseases that can be transmitted by such acts. Two kisses. There is also a very quick shot of a nude woman on a picture screen. We also see several nude males. There are no clear shots of genitals, but we do see derrieres. And, of course, Stallone takes his shirt off a few times.

VIOLENCE/GORE 7 - There are lots of fire fights, fist fights and explosions, with obvious results, and some blood and gore. Snipes removes the eye of a victim and carries it around on the end of a pen. Several buildings blow up. A man is shot and then tossed into a fireplace. A man is picked up and squeezed by a mechanical arm, while another man shoots at him. A man is instantly frozen and then his head is knocked off.

LANGUAGE 6 - A couple of dozen F-words and its permutations as well as scatological terms, anatomical references and profane name calling.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - The future, utopias and totalitarianism, behavior modification, alternatives to the present penal system, solutions to today's social ills.

MESSAGE - Total peace and harmony may sound good, but they stifle human creativity. In order to solve a problem, sometimes violence is the only way.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
