Classic Van Damme. Rather decent sci-fi.
I will always have a soft spot for Timecop because 1) JCVD and 2) time travel, but it has to be said that the time travel method they use in this one is wide, gaping plot holes. Check your brain at the door when it comes to the gonzo plot, as it doesn't feel the need to make sense, except in an action flick kind of way (right down to the gratuitous nudity and death puns). This is, after all, prime Van Damme, doing the split at a moment's notice and exhibiting his kickboxing skillz as a member of the Time Patrol, which is under threat from late 80s'-early '90s iconic slime, Ron Silver as a Senator who wants to abuse the technology and has a discourse that seems prescient of what's happening in American politics today (well, the brazenness of it, as it was clearly already going on). So a slightly goofy sf-action movie, where time is made of melted cheese, and the plot has a similar consistency. Just a bit of fun that I wish had better built up its core mythology.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
