Editorial Reviews

Pay no attention to the fact that Timecop is an insult to intelligent science fiction, and that it gradually succumbs to an acute case of the sillies. It is a Jean-Claude Van Damme movie, after all, so check your brain at the door and enjoy this action flick set in the year 2004. Van Damme plays an officer in the Time Enforcement Police, assigned to prevent criminals from traveling to the past with the intent of altering the future. Ron Silver plays the evil politician who plots to retrieve a stockpile of gold from the Civil War to finance his latest campaign. The film is clever to a point, and entertaining if you can ignore the dumb jokes and inconsistencies. Best of all, it's an above-average vehicle for Van Damme (relatively speaking), who gets to kick some villainous butt and share a few scenes with Mia Sara, who plays the Timecop's wife. As Van Damme fans can tell you, this is one of the action star's better movies. --Jeff Shannon

Product Description

In this "pumped-up adventure packed with white-knuckle thrills" (Associated Press), time travel is not only a reality, but an opportunity to alter the past for power and profit. Jean-Claude Van Damme stars in the sci-fi thriller that mixes hard-hitting action with awesome special effects, romance and murder. Ron Silver co-stars as Van Damme's cunning adversary in what People magazine touts as "clever and original, Timecop is a thinking man's movie."

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable despite inconsistencies (but full-screen?) December 31, 2003
Apart from the _Terminator_ series, there haven't been all that many SF time-travel action thrillers. There have been time-travel _movies_, but they're generally not action flicks. (_Somewhere in Time_, for example, is primarily a romance, and the brilliant _12 Monkeys_ isn't about "action.") Of course there's Nicholas Meyer's excellent _Time After Time_, which isn't as well known as it should be.

And there's this one. It's not (just) a Van Damme vehicle, though it works well enough for fans of the Muscles from Brussels. It's also a fairly well constructed and enjoyable SF movie.

SF readers be warned: it does _not_ have the logical tightness of Robert A. Heinlein's early time-travel stories ('By His Bootstraps', 'All You Zombies'), or even of the first _Terminator_ film. But as Heinlein found in later life, an unalterable past/future just doesn't make for very exciting drama. (As of _The Cat Who Walks Through Walls_, RAH was officially allowing the past, and therefore the future, to be changed.)

For this film, director Peter Hyams and screenwriters Mark Verheiden and Mark Richardson (also the writers of the Dark Horse comic on which the film is based) borrow liberally but loosely from Poul Anderson's Time Patrol stories. Since (according to this scheme) a physically feasible means of time travel not only exists but can be used to change the past, there will be all sorts of baddies around who will try to adjust things to their own advantage. So there will have to be some time-travel cops who intervene to preserve the 'real' timestream.

Van Damme is one such cop. And in this film he's pitted against Ron Silver, well cast as a crooked politician who wants to rearrange things so that he becomes dictator of America.

5.0 out of 5 stars How did you get here? March 23, 2008
Format:HD DVD
Time Cop DVD

Jean-Claude Van Damme stars as a time-traveling law enforcement officer whose mission is to prevent and/or apprehend anybody from traveling back in time for their own personal gains. You know that as soon as humans invent Time-Travel someone will be abusing the invention.

Highly recommended for fans of Jean-Claude Van Damme and the book The Time Machine (Signet Classics)

3.0 out of 5 stars Awful pan and scan version! July 21, 2002
For a film that was shot in full anamorphic Panavision 2.35:1 by a very good director/cinematographer I find it very weird that Universal would only release this in cropped format. Many other people have expressed their disappointment in other reviews about this but I must let you know that the R2 version IS in widescreen. If you must by this film then get the UK Region 2 version. The Dolby 5.1 soundtrack remains the same but the movie is shown in it's correct OAR. And that is what matters most.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Movie For Its Type August 25, 2004
By Cain
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I think that for a movie that professes to be nothing more than what it is this movie rates high. It is pure science fiction, action. escapism. Nothing more - nothing less. It is pure entertainment. All right so its hard to understand Jean-Claude all the time but they gave him a superlative supporting cast of actors, especially Ron Silver who is always good, who basically carry the movie. The martial arts were kept controlled to the story line and there actually was a story. This movie was not meant to explore the deeper meaning of life. For that go see "The Big Sleep" with Humphrey Bogart. For pure entertainment

get this one. In my opinion Jean-Claude's best movie, through no fault of his own. A great flick. For those nay-sayers out there GET A GRIP.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Uh...where is the widescreen version? Its not saying much, but this might be Damn's best film besides Bloodsport, and no widescreen transfer? Hmm....

It's been about 6 years since Timecop was originally released on DVD, time for a new widescreen release!

2.0 out of 5 stars Cropped Pictures YACK! May 30, 2006

I agree with the other reviewers!

This is the one VanDamm movie I LOVE and when I found it in my one used shop I was so extatic I never looked to see screen format! I never though that it would be Full Screen@!#!*!%!!!!!

Ye Gods!

it totally ruins that wonderful sceen in the kitchen of him doing the splits!

Hey ya I'm a red-blooded female...and I can go OUCH at that scene too! that stunt hurts to do and man.....Whistle.....Looks very nice!

The cropping really really ruins the impressive impact of that scene and I've not see the picture since it first came out

it was really a Disappointment when I saw FULL SCREEN

Come on UNIVERSAL!!!



this is a fantastic action picture and a crying shame to see it in full screen only!!!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars TIMECOP- Excellent Sci-fi Action Adventure Movie November 12, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Good movie with great ideas. I wouldn't say this was the best time-travel movie ever made, but it does seem cool for an action movie. Van Damme (actor I'm not a big fan of) seems to be a pretty cool guy in this movie. Most of the movies he makes I really don't like. But this one I think is great and can watch all over again. In the year 1994, time travel is all of a sudden made possible and the President decides to give it out to the government. Officer Max Walker is chosen to be one of the travelers of the force. But bad guys from the future soon learn about it and go back in time to kill him and ruin his life by having his wife murdered after causing his house to explode. 10 years later, Agent Max Walker has been carrying out missions for the force and made a good time-traveler. But he wishes he could go back and prevent the terrible tragedy from happening to his wife. But it is a rule for people to change their own lives and alter the course of history. An evil senator running for president in 2004 is causing schemes by having his henchman go back in time and embezzle money so he can have his polls go up real easily. Max Walker learns about this when the presidential candidate has changed history by having the force shut down and is winning in the election. Walker knows he has to travel back to stop this and sees it as his chance to get his wife back so he can have the happy life he was supposed to have. Excellent Movie!
