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

Van Damme is compelling only when he takes his clothes off.
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.
Maybe it's the formula, maybe it's all that time travel, but you just can't help thinking you've seen it all before.
A passable, sub-Terminator, time-travel adventure.
This brainless romp [is] a real blast.
More fun than expected sci-fi, cop flick starring Jean-Claude for kicks.
As time-travel pictures go, this Jean-Claude Van Damme vehicle is a passable but disappointing excursion into well-traveled terrain.
Thanks to Hyams' professionalism, Timecop is a slickly-made, fast-paced and mildly-diverting B movie.
Filled with holes, gaps, and the ilk, it's a minor Van Damme, meaning there is some minor fun.
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.
Out of all Jean-Claude's solo movies, this is probably the best and most interesting. The time traveling aspect is really well done and in many ways logical, as is the need for a regulating task force. While it can get a little confusing at times for absolutely no reason, the main goal was to present a cool action with Jean-Claude kicking people all over the place.
