And if you're staying in tonight, there's a lot of films on TV.

However, he is later awoken in a future peaceful utopian society as he may be the only person able to stop the rampage of psychopathic criminal Simon Phoenix (Wesley Snipes) after the latter escaped his cyro-prison.

Co-starring Sandra Bullock, Demolition Man is both a solid action film and a fun fish out of water comedy as Stallone's Spartan struggles to adapt to the radically different world of 2032.
