Demolition Man

Raymond Cocteau is killed by Phoenix, who tries to re-animate the entire cryoprison to start a new reign of terror. Spartan arrives at the cryoprison and causes the unstable Phoenix to destroy it while trying to kill him. In the process, Phoenix is frozen and then Spartan kicks off his head, killing him. Spartan tells Chief George Earle and Edgar Friendly to accomodate each other and form a new government to replace the late Cocteau. Spartan finally gets to kiss Huxley over the credits.

Continuity mistake: When Simon Phoenix gets out of the sewer system (after gunning it out with the rebels and John Spartan) his left eye has the brown contact and his right eye has the blue one after going the entire movie with those contacts in the opposite eyes. (01:30:25)

More trivia for Demolition Man

Question: I remember seeing this movie multiple times years back, and i distinctly remember the restaurant being Taco Bell, why the sudden badly dubbed pizza hut in the new television version?

Answer: A number of the European releases of the film replaced Taco Bell with Pizza Hut, as Pizza Hut has a significant international presence, whereas Taco Bell is relatively unknown outside the US, with very few restaurants. While most versions around these days keep the US original dialogue, the altered versions do occasionally crop up, particularly on television.
