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.
probability scales, all that shit
Good moments. Bad package. Great haircuts.
Would've gotten four stars if he had done at least one thing of the two things any real life time traveling man would have done.
1. Fucked his past self(optional: while his wife watches).
2. """Eiffel Towered""" his wife.
#384 TIMECOP - Not as good as HARD TARGET, but still totally awesome. Easily my #2 fav JCVD film. #DLMChallenge #366Movies #366Days
i did see 'timecop', does that count? not even jean-claude's cute butt? yeah, well, i
guess it does get offset by the knot on his forehead. poor slob.
jean Claude wins at olden days kicking and the splits.
After one too many jokes about Timecop in the Jean-Claude Van Johnson pilot I decided to fill that gap and watch it.
It's not better than Looper.
Sorry Van Damme, but Looper is better haha But there's still plenty of fun to be had with Timecop. I'd say the best and worst thing about Van Damme movies (specifically 80s & 90s) is that you know exactly what you're going to get.
In questo generico Action/Thriller Van Damme è Un poliziotto che protegge il tempo e Cerca di Fermare un senatore dal diventare presidente. Un film piuttosto pacato, ritmo lento, Trama semplice e previdibile, Poca tecnica, tanta esposizione, Azione Blanda, Battute che non fanno ridere ed un protagonista Noiosissimo. Non è del tutto pessimo, L'antagonista mi è piaciuto ed è uno spasso vederlo interagire con la sua versione piu giovane, cosi come mi è piaciuta la scena dove mostrano come funzionano i viaggi nel tempo, ma di storie su questo argomento ce ne sono parecchie e questa non è di certo la piu memorabile.
work in progress.
suggestions are welcome.
