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

Critic Reviews for Timecop
For the most part, Hyams' lackluster direction and the repetitive quality of the action sequences squander an intriguing premise and impressive production design, leaving few moments that elicit the sort of 'Wow!' response such fare needs in order to pros
SF specialist Peter Hyams, doubling as usual as director and cinematographer, leaves his record for mediocrity unblemished in this silly time-travel tale.
Hyams is no stranger to large-scale sci-fi, so his management of the massive sets and slightly mechanical fx is more than adequate.
Years of tireless persistence have begun to work in Mr. Van Damme's favor. It's hard not to enjoy his energy, even if his acting gifts still leave a lot to be desired.
Audience Reviews for Timecop
I didnt like this, its well done and looks OK but it lacks any kind of punch. Its pretty dull I thought, and like most other time travel flicks the story is predictable and the effects weren't that good even then, they now look really dated. There are some nice touches, like the soldier getting frozen and losing half his body and the odd good bit of fighting from JCVD but overall its really average.
good van damme flick
Underthought and unoriginal but not unwatchable.
|Walker:||He messed up my apartment, you can kill him.|
|Sen. Aaron McComb:||Agent Walker, do you realize how inappropriate that is? Do I look frozen to you?|
|Walker:||You look like shit to me.|
|Walker:||Don't argue amongst yourself.|
|McComb Man:||You see, I'm an ambitious Harvard-educated visionary who deserves to be the most powerful man in the world and you... you're a fucking idiot who never figured out that the only way to make anything of himself with all that fancy kicking was on Broadway.|
|Walker:||Thanks for clearing that up.|
