John Spartan vs. Simon Phoenix: Demolition Man

Demolition Man has always been one of my favourite Stallone movies; its hilarious script and awesome action make it essential and Wesley Snipes is arguably on career best form.

The film tells the story of two men—one, an evil crime lord; the other, a risk-taking police officer—who are cryogenically frozen in the year 1996 and reawakened in 2032. Following a massive earthquake in 2010 that destroyed much of Los Angeles, it merged with San Diego to form a planned city called San Angeles in which all crime has seemingly been eliminated from mainstream society.

The climactic battle between these two rivals is one of the best scenes of the movie and if you have never seen it then check it out.
