Critics Consensus

It's no Terminator, but for those willing to suspend disbelief and rational thought, Timecop provides limited sci-fi action rewards.

    Van Dammes Time travel film is no Terminator but as far as Van Damme films go it's pretty good which isn't saying much, The action was ok but the story wasn't very well done and the effects are pretty bad, It's a shame Van Damme is an after thought when it comes to Action stars but he does his best even with a pretty poor script.

    "Jean-Claude Van Damme" honestly was a horrible decision to have him portray the movie's protagonist "Walker". Set in the year 2004 the plot to "Timecop" is time-travel has just been invented and many people have realized how easily it is to cause the end of the world. Knowing this a company was created for "Law Enforcement" to stop time travelers from causing the end of the world. The movie opens with "Melissa" portrayed by "Mia Sara" awaiting her husband in a shopping mall. The scene isn't the best opening to an Action/Sci-Fi. Throughout the movie the audience gets to experience the antagonist "McComb" portrayed by "Ron Silver" who wants to become president so he time travels to 1994 to tell his younger self how to do this. "Ron Silver" as the antagonist, he gives the audience quite a superb performance as "McComb". The film's climax is entertaining to watch but fails to feel realistic to the audience. As satated previously there could not have possibly been a worse choice than "Jean-Claude Van Damme" to play "Walker". "Mark Isham", "Timecop's" film score composer created thrilling and entertaining music for the scenes that it's in. Another issue with the film is its script; its full of bad dialogue and plot holes. Although the movie does have its moments that at times are humorous. Director of cinematography "Peter Hyams" does a good job filming, but occasionally using close-ups. If you are a person who enjoys 1990's Sci-Fi/Action movies then I recommend you watch "Timecop" as it is filmed well, has a great antagonist and has a splendid film score. Although the movie is not perfect, it has some issues these being bad scrip full of plot holes, unrealistic scenes and a horrible choice for a main character. I give 1994's "Timecop" a 6/10.

    Incredibly stupid-looking and cheesy, which makes it smarter than what the pre-production standards ever ambitioned. This cool action flick has basically everything, including an odd camp aroma from the 80s that few movies maintained. Talk about irony... 55/100

    This is one of the Van Damme films I have in my collection, the time aspect might be flawed but it's a lot of fun. The seriousness of the time travel is the interesting part of the film, it feels like an action version of back to the future. Van Damme is a lot better cast here and the film benefits from the strong presence he provides. This is much better than it deserves to be, most of the 90s films were very one dimensional but this is a surprising action film. The lead characters could've adopted some of the time saving aspects, Van Damme could've acknowledged the weird confrontation at the end by telling his wife that he saved her today. Not a classic by any means but a good film that holds up even today. 23-09-2017.
