This movie should be remembered for some time to come...
'Timecop' probably represents Jean-Claude Van Damme at his very best - this movie demonstrates his ability...
The movie itself is slick and some thought has obviously gone into it - some time-travel movies do fail on grounds concerning plausibility, though 'Timecop' is intelligent as it is enjoyable...
