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

In the beginning of the movie when George Spota is talking to the senate committee he states that an arms deal was being paid for by gold bullion from the civil war. He states that this coin was carbon dated back to that time. This cannot be so for two reasons. One if it was brought forward in time it would not have had a chance to age. But even more so is that you cannot carbon date metals. Carbon dating can only be used for organic matter, material that was once living. See more »

This movie should be remembered for some time to come...
27 May 2000 | by (Fayetteville, Arkansas) – See all my reviews

'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...

The complexity of the film really finds the viewer respecting Van Damme a lot more, it simply isn't an action movie, though Van Damme shows that he still retains his amazing physical talents...

I recently saw this movie on NBC, and though not seeing it from the start, it brought back memories of the entire film, and what a great film it is - I had originally thought about giving this a [6/10], then thought maybe [7 or 8/10]...I opted for [8/10]...(maybe leaning more towards nine)...

:)
