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 CryoPrision to find a 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, Benjamin Bratt and Denis Leary also play rough and tough in this “terrific mix of action and humor” (Joel Siegel, Good Morning America/ABC-TV).

A Dictator has arisen and brought about a new, Peaceful, orderly world...by driving the "lower element" underground. Sly and Wesley and Sandra Bullock shake, rattle, and roll in both worlds...and in both centuries - Bullock has studied the ancient past and is able to work with Stallone, as she understands his "primitive" culture.
If that's too "out there", just enjoy the incredible special effects, the tight editing, the musical score. We look into the (not so distant) future... and see alot that does not seem so remote: the "freedom" of the above ground society comes at a great price - be subjugated by the powers that be and live clean, healthy...and not much more. The have-nots have no meaning in the new order.
Watch for special cameo by Jesse The Body Ventura just before he became Jesse The Governor Ventura. And listen for a moderately portentuous mention of Arnold Schwartzenegger.
The film never quite makes up its' mind if it's action-adventure or satire; that enhances its' presumptive "cult" status.
Afterthought: Sly Stallon, pushing 50 at the time, looks to be about at his "Rocky" weight and very vital. There's a big list of stunt artists in the cloing credits but Stallone, Snipes, and others really broke a sweat for the fans.
However, this is where you will find your origin of the "Arnold Schwarzenegger wants to be President" joke!
It's a joy joy movie filled with action packed explosions and those moments that will just make you shake your head as you are boggled by what you hear!
Lots of laughs and family friendly violence. More of that mature edge.
A great movie in a cheesy future, saved by Sandra Bullock.
