Storyline

When the ability to travel through time is perfected, a new type of law enforcement agency is formed. It's called Time Enforcement Commission or TEC. A cop, Max Walker, is assigned to the group. On the day he was chosen, some men attack him and kill his wife. Ten years later Max is still grieving but has become a good agent for the TEC. He tracks down a former co-worker who went into the past to make money. Max brings him back for sentencing but not after telling Max that Senator McComb, the man in charge of TEC, sent him. Max has his eye on McComb. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Goofs

At one point there is an effects shot in which Senator McComb walks round his earlier self. There is a strong raking light coming from screen right throwing strong shadows down the (screen) right hand sides of both versions of the actor. Yet, as the actor walks 'past' - i.e. between the earlier version of himself and the light source - no shadow falls on the stationary actor as it would have done if someone had really walked past him with that lighting.

Simply put, I dig this cop. A friend of mine wrote this film, before his death. Based on a comic book following. I think, even with the regular mode of acting that Mr. Van Damme has, this was on the level as well as an over the edge thriller! The story I loved, with the turn in plot etc, etc, but I found this as many times as I have seen it is still a movie that can glue me to my seat. It is always a wild ride, with one Hell of a punch! I like the fact that our hero loves his wife and family, (in the end with the family). He is a solid character to lean on. He is honest and true to his work and dealing with the criminal element. This was and still is a hard driving story, that's why it was in 1994, Number One at the Box Office. Again however, Peter Hyams, the director and visionary-creative force, has a way with his characters, in shooting scenes, the way the light is brought about from the foreground and the back drop and everything in between.

I passed on a chance to meet Mr.Hyams, at a friends house, in Summerland Ca, back in 1994. What an idiot I was! I don't believe too much time goes by that I don't want to kick myself in my own ass for passing up the chance to meet a master craftsman, in the arena of Hollywood film. This action drama doesn't let down! It is a knock-down drag-out festival of action maneuvering and intellectual willing against a stronger more powerful force than himself(Max). I fully enjoyed Bruce McGill as commander Matuzak, the lead guy in charge. I thought that was a different pick then I would have cast in the beginning, but he was actually better than I imagined! He seems to have an air of craziness, and civility together that works out in the part that he is playing. Max Walker, (Van Damme) was a likable guy I think and that's what gives the film more appeal to the masses. He is someone you want to root for, again and again.

I recommend this thriller action drama, for action and good twisted plot- lovers.(****)
