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."
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

Now, in terms of action, it is ok. Many of the scenes are almost too choppy to follow and the things that you do see are just a little to unbelievable to take at face value.
Perhaps I simply overthink time travel movies however I like the plot to be basically believable, meaning that the simple things like time loops are roughly followed or avoided.
Not my least favorite movie however the time travel errors caused the movie to be not enjoyable and more of a headache for me.
