Well, I've watched this many times. I appreciate scifi, action and humor in one package. Very talented cast. Silly idea, but quite watchable.

A respectably cheesy action vs. match-up between Stallone and Snipes. A guilty pleasure.

An enticing mix of comedy and action packed cheese… Sandra Bullock is her fresh-faced charming self as a naive and overeager cop with a love of the past (& Sly's raw masculinity!) while Wesley Snipes is great as the devious Simon Phoenix,an escaped psychotic cryo-con with no tracking sensor.
This movie is set in the future where most people are certified weaklings! Everything that's bad for you is illegal. People are ticketed and fined for swearing…… violence, feelings and even salt are all illegal. The futuristic cops are pathetically wimpy and I quote they "are not trained to handle this sort of violence!" So if you have a madman causing chaos in this peaceful future, what would you do? If you said get the 20th century's baddest cop to nab the psycho then you are absolutely correct. …

After a succession of painfully po-faced ego-trips in the 80s, Sly finally took a leaf out of Arnie's book and grew a sense of humour in this reasonably enjoyable comic strip sci-fi. He plays John Spartan, a tough guy cop thawed out in the future to stop an amusingly gleeful psychopath in the form of Wesley Snipes. There are plenty of jokes at the expense of the whole "politically correct" ethos and some mild social satire, including one of Dennis Leary's familiar rants. Sandra Bullock also appears as his endearingly innocent sidekick who shows him the ropes of living in the future, almost like an action man version of Sleeper. Not a world changer, but it's a damn sight more palatable than most of Stallone's work and Sandra looks damn fine in uniform!
