Movie Reviews

Director: Peter Hyams

Starring: Jean-Claude Van Damme, Mia Sara, Ron Silver, Bruce McGill, Gloria Reuben

Review by Joseph Paul John McCarthy

SYNOPSIS:

When the ability to travel through time is perfected, a new time of law enforcement agency is formed. It's called Time Enforcement Commission or TEC. A cop Max Walker is assigned to the group. On the day he was chosen, some men attack him and kill his wife. Ten years later Max is still grieving but has become a good agent for the TEC. He tracks down a former co-worker who went into the past to make money. Max brings him back for sentencing but not after telling Max that Senator McComb the man in charge of TEC sent him. Max has his eye on McComb.

REVIEW:

I’m going to say this right off the bat, this review is going to be a bit biased. I like “Timecop”, I don’t know why. Obviously there is the time travel and the action sequences are pretty awesome thanks of course to Van Damme. But then again what

On the other hand the plot for this film I can explain, Max Walker (Van Damme) works for the TEC; Time Enforcement Commission. Their job is to ensure that no one changes history. Walker’s partner is found to be buying up stocks during the Great Depression named Aaron McComb (Ron Silver) has several timecops working for him, making him money in the past so that he can use it for his election campaign.

Unfortunately Walker’s partner refuses to testify and so is sentenced to death, now Walker knows the truth but has no evidence to convict Senator McComb. He’s also still dealing with the death of his wife ten years previously. So what will Van Damme do? I’ll tell you what he’ll do; he’s going to kick a lot of guys’ asses for the next hour and a bit.

Understandably ‘Timecop’ isn’t the kind of film that you sit down to watch to analyse the intricate subplot or to marvel at the visuals. When you watch a film like ‘Timecop’ you want to see, one) time travel and two) Van Damme kicking, punching andAnd this film has a lot of that. Van Damme does the splits at one point to save his life from a futuristic stun gun. It doesn’t get cooler than that.

Whilst this isn’t Van Damme’s best acting attempt, it is some of his best fighting sequences. Perhaps not as good as ‘Kickboxer’ or ‘The Quest’ but it’s up there, mainly for just how cool, as in well timed, the kicks and jumps are.

But that is pretty much all that this film has going for it, whilst the idea is pretty good, based on a comic by the same name, the plot is fairly straight forward. With one dimensional characters and an ending you can see without the help of a time machine. There is also various plot

Like all action films it has it’s cheesy one liners; but they come part and parcel with action films, much like how in 90% of all time travel films when history changes, even though the time traveller knows they’ve changed history they always act confused

Whilst this film just missed out on getting into the top 50 of the top 100 time travel films of all time, I do want to reiterate that this isn’t a bad film; it isn’t a great cinematic masterpiece, but it’s not trying to be. The film makers know who this film is for. It’s for people who like action, time travel and have an hour and a half to kill.

So if you match the above criteria I recommend ‘Timecop’
