Frozen in 1996, Simon Phoenix, a convicted crime lord, is revived for a parole hearing well into the 21st century. Revived into a society free from crime, Phoenix resumes his murderous rampage, and no one can stop him.

Unable to stop him with their non-violent solutions, the police release Spartan to help recapture Phoenix. Now after 36 years, Spartan has to adapt himself to the future society he has no knowledge about. Written by
Lenina Huxley's name is a combination of Lenina Crowne and Aldous Huxley. Crowne is a character in Aldous Huxley's 'Brave New World' (1932), a novel about a future society where everything is predetermined for you so as not to offend others(among other reasons) and where showing even moderate emotion is considered to be unusual and possibly even illegal. Crowne's first name Lenina itself was chosen by Aldous Huxley after the pseudonym of the first dictator of the Soviet Union, Lenin (Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov). See more »
When you hear the voice of Dr. Cocteau narrating the museum exhibit, he states that below the museum patrons is an actual 20th Century street preserved since the earthquake of 2010. If the earthquake happened in 2010, the preserved street would be from the 21st Century, not the 20th. See more »

I first saw this movie in the theater when it came out in 93 and loved it.
The cool futuristic toys and Stallone and Sandra Bullock make a great
on-screen couple. Snipes delivers as the bad guy, and Stallone is the cop
who is frozen but thawed out 36 years later to stop him once again. Plenty
of one-liners and action.
