They killed his wife ten years ago. There's still time to save her. Murder is forever... until now.
An officer for a security agency that regulates time travel, must fend for his life against a shady politician who has a tie to his past.
While not my favorite Jean-Claude Van Damme film, Timecop is probably one of the most well-written/directed/acted films he's appeared in, so far. I was pretty engrossed the entire time and it wasn't because it was super over-the-top hilarious either, I was actually very interested in the story. I mean, don't get me wrong, the baddies with the intense mullets and piercings were a treat and at times Timecop was so 1994 that it hurt a bit.
Also, why weren't cars as awesome in 2004 as they were in this movie? I'm pretty sure that in '04 I was still driving a '95 Ford Escort...
Ten minutes in we get a Muscles from Brussels ass shot.
Twenty minutes in he does a mid fight split like it's the most normal thing in the world.
It just isn't a van Damme film without them!
I love the Windows Movie Maker special effects, but it's still a paradoxical cesspool filled with paradoxes and things that are paradoxical.
But it's still kinda cool.
Which sounds paradoxical, I know.

I'm a few days removed from it so I don't remember that much. I do remember Van Damme shows his... naked... butt... again! This is an action movie that involves time travel. It is very self aware when it comes to acknowledging who the star of the movie is, like the quote above, mentioning his bad English, his lame (let's be honest here, they're awesome) one-liners. The time travel aspect is very broadly presented and is nothing more than a cool way to bring something different to an action movie but it does make for some great moments and an entertaining watch. Good fights, Van Damme is good in it, so this is a good movie!

Favourite Mullets in Cinema: Timecop (1994)
Futuristic dystopian-based actioners were all the rage in the 90s, from movies like Total Recall to Demolition Man. Timecop is Jean-Claude Van Damme's attempt at the subgenre, and I thought it was actually pretty good. Sure, it takes elements of various other movies out there, but they were at least combined to create what I felt was an entertaining and well-paced ride.
In this one, a time-travelling program gets developed by the U.S government, which corrupt senator Aaron McComb uses to his own advantage to fund his own presidential campaign. Flash to 2004, where Max Walker (Van Damme) is an officer working for the program. His wife Melissa murdered…
Part of my Top 20: Time Travel Movies list
Mullets and plot holes. At times interconnected. Quite the underrated entertainer though as JCVD goes all business in the front, party in the back. Dem splits are the stuff of legend!
When this started I thought it was garbage, but by the end it had kind of won me over. Sure, it suffers from the usual time travel plot hole problems (If he fixed the past why doesn't his future self's memories change? And about a billion other things.) as well as the usual Van Damme can't act problems, and the plot's a little convoluted, but it still has a sense of cheesy fun and a climax that's surprisingly grounded in its characters. As far as Van Dame '90s vehicles go... well, this is the first one I've seen. But I'm sure there are worse ones than this.
Cheesy, cheesy and really cheesy, it might not be a classic but it's fun as hell.
If you thought this would be a million times better than looper, you'd be wrong.
I can't give this movie a pass.
If the basic premise is faulty then everything that follows is nonsense.
So yeah, yesterday's United States Presidential Election...
I won't get into my political views as that can only lead to trouble. I will just say for the people around the world who may possibly read this, it was an ugly election cycle and with this result, a lot of Americans are shocked and also petrified at what may happen with President Trump, a Republican-controlled legislature and a Republican-dominated Supreme Court. If Hillary won things probably would be heated the other way as you can argue about various controversies she's been a part of, but as things are now... like I said, many Americans are feeling scared at what potentially could happen. I hope the United States doesn't tear itself apart.…
Based on the Dark Horse comic book series of the same name, this time travel sci-fi actioner marked the beginning of a fan favorite actor/director partnership, Jean-Claude Van Damme & Peter Hyams. Here, Hyams directs Van Damme as a officer in the Time Enforcement Committee (T.E.C.) who must travel back to the past to stop corrupt politician McComb (Ron Silver) from profiting off time travel and to save his wife (Mia Sara) from a murder attempt meant for him by McComb's hired goons. The acting is pretty much what you expect in a Van Damme movie, the visual effects are a little dicey and the dialogue is a little corny. This doesn't stop it from being a fun movie…
B film production values, but this is an entertaining flick with a relatively sensible script and narrative development. +JCVD.
