Time paradoxes are supposed to be mind-boggling; Timecop has reduced them to a level somewhere between confusing and dumb.

SF specialist Peter Hyams, doubling as usual as director and cinematographer, leaves his record for mediocrity unblemished in this silly time-travel tale.

Some impressive Terminator-type special effects, various plot holes, kung-fu derring-do and action as well as some wooden acting by the muscles from Brussels make for Saturday matinee entertainment, but little else.

Only worth renting if you've got a poker game and a bottle of Jack Daniels going. View it straight and you'll be too busy rolling your eyes to keep up.

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.

Being a time-travel epic, plot holes abound here, but it's Van Damme's cute little attempt at being the family man that ruins that oh-so-necessary willing suspension of disbelief.

In terms of plot and direction, there are loopholes galore and too much in-your-face audience-pummeling for my taste.

It's just a bit too uneven to take advantage of its strengths.

Waste of a great premise. They go back in time to 1994. Ooooh.
