About this movie

The plot of this action film begins in 1996, with Los Angeles in a violence-crazed conflagration. One of the LAPD's most notorious cops, John Spartan (Sylvester Stallone), known as "the demolition man," is in hot pursuit of blonde-haired psychopath Simon Phoenix (Wesley Snipes), who is so nasty he even kills sometimes just because he feels cranky. John captures Simon, but not before Simon kills innocent hostages. John is blamed for the deaths of the hostages, and both he and Simon are cryogenically frozen to remove their brand of ultra-violence from a society that is simply just too violent. The film shifts to the future world of 2032, where Los Angeles has become a megalopolis called San Angeles. There is no poverty, Arnold Schwarzenegger was (at one time) president of the United States, and Taco Bell is the sole survivor of the Franchise Wars. Into this peaceful and bland society, Simon is summarily defrosted by reigning benevolent dictator Dr. Cocteau (Nigel Hawthorne) to have Simon murder Edgar Friendly (Denis Leary), the leader of a group of underground rebels. But Cocteau bites off more than he can chew when the melted-down Simon proceeds to go on a murder-and-looting spree. Reluctantly, Cocteau defrosts John to hunt down his old adversary. As John adjusts to self-driving cars and having sex wearing helmets, he pairs up with Lenina Huxley (Sandra Bullock), a bored cop with a nostalgic fascination for 20th-century culture.

Hola, soy Irreverentonio, y a continuación te daré mi breve reseña sobre esta película. Ya todos sabemos a estas alturas que Sylvester Stallone no solo no sabe actuar, sino que pareciera que tiene una embolia en la cabeza que no le permite articular correctamente las palabras, aun así, se considera un actor, y quien soy yo para decirle de otra forma, ¿verdad?, bueno, en esta película "actúa" con Wesley, evasor fiscal, Snipes, en una realidad que quisiera decir es un tanto fantasiosa, pero a la que tristemente nos estamos encaminando con tanto copito de nieve que no soporta críticas. Véanla, lloren de miedo, porque si no hacemos nada para impedirlo, a eso vamos encaminados, pero no es por ser alarmistas, pero es un viaje del cual podríamos no retornar. Recomendada.

Sanırım en az 5 kere izledim Cekildigi zamanın üstünde bir film. Karakterler kadar iyi yansıtılmış ki kötülere gerçekten gıcık oluyorsunuz 😊
