John Spartan (Sylvester Stallone) is cop in a horrific, violent, dystopian future, whose methods are so intense that, in capturing the terrorist Simon Phoenix (Wesley Snipes), they end up sharing a punishment. Being put in suspended animation. Skip to several decades later, all crime has been eliminated and the police exist only for show. So when Phoenix escapes, the only way the useless police (including Benjamin Bratt and, my fav, Sandra Bullock) can deal with him is to unfreeze John Sparton. It’s a fish out of water story, it’s fabulous, I love it so much, and I really want to know exactly what the three seashells do.
