Timecop is widely regarded as one of Jean-Claude Van Damme’s best films and I’d have to agree; sure, it doesn’t have the fight scenes of other classics like Bloodsport but it has a great villain played by the late great Ron Silver, a cool story and (for the time) some impressive visual effects. It’s a shame it was set in 2004 so that part seems quaint now but aside from that Timecop is still awesome.
SYNOPSIS: When mankind perfects time travel, the government establishes the Time Enforcement Commission to thwart criminal attempts to alter the timeline. Police officer Walker (Jean-Claude Van Damme) is recruited by TEC Cmdr. Matuzak (Bruce McGill), but soon finds his investigation of Senator Aaron McComb (Ron Silver) being thwarted by elements within the government. When Walker’s wife, Melissa (Mia Sara), is attacked, he must travel across time to rescue her and save the future.
