RMG 317 – Demolition Man (1993)

June 28, 2023

On this episode, the Retro Movie Geek crew is, once again, joined by Mike “The Neighbor” Kahwaty (see more from Mike here or here), and they’re geeking out over Demolition Man (1993) and

  • Taco Bell or Pizza Hut
  • the cast
  • an emasculated policeforce
  • over-the-top characters
  • and much, much more!


Sgt. John Spartan doesn’t fight crime. He rips into it like a junkyard dog. He’s the Demolition Man… and he’s the future’s only hope.

Sylvester Stallone and Wesley Snipes go at it amid a dazzling cyber-future in this fierce and funny action blast from producer Joel Silver. The year is 2032 and archcriminal Simon Phoenix has emerged from a 35-year deep freeze in CryoPrison to find a serene, violence-free Southern California ready for the taking. Ill-equipped to deal with Phoenix’s psychopathic 1990s style, city officials decide they need an old-fashioned cop to fight old-fashioned crime. They need Spartan, currently serving time in CryoPrison because of his last encounter with Phoenix.

After they thaw him out, the excitement heats up. Spartan may be suddenly out of his element – but he’s never out of the action.
