Jean-Claude Van Damme,
In a violent and corrupt prison, decorated cop Louis Burke must infiltrate the jail to find answers to a number of inside murders. What he finds is a struggle of life and death tied in to his own past.
Jean-Claude Van Damme,
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
2004 Max's hairstyle was partially influenced by Wolverine from the X-Men comics. See more »
When McComb travels back in time to the factory to prevent the deal he made 10 years earlier from happening, Walker kicked him in the face, the scare on the face then appears on the future McComb, this suggests events that happen in the past alter the future.
Yet when past/future McComb touch and are therefore destroyed, the future is not changed. Because past McComb no longer exists, the future events would never happen and the entire house scene would not occur at all. This entire scene makes no logical sense because of this. See more »

The film was initially censored to receive a more commercially viable M rating for its theatrical release in Australia. The opening sex scene between Van Damme and Mia Sara was slightly cut and the final confrontation between Van Damme and one of Ron Silver's heavies where Van Damme repeatedly pistol whips the villain was censored to one hit. These cuts were restored for the MA VHS and DVD release. See more »
Highly Entertaining, Despite the Cliches and the Inconsistencies
When time travel was developed by a scientist in 1994, there was the need to create the Time Enforcement Commision (TEC) under the control of Senator Aaron McComb (Ron Silver) to protect the past from modifications. The police office Max Walker (Jean-Claude Van Damme) is invited to join the TEC, and when his wife Melissa (Mia Sara) is murdered by strangers, he accepts the invitation to work under the command of Eugene Matuzak (Bruce McGill). In 2004, Walker is assigned to capture his former partner Lyle Atwood (Jason Schombing) that is manipulating the stock market in 1929. Atwood tells that he is working for Senator McComb, who is a powerful politician that is running for president. Atwood prefers to die and does not confess that McComb is a criminal. Now Max knows the truth but McComb is changing the past and Max does not know how stop him.
"Timecop" is a highly entertaining film, despite the clichés and the inconsistencies. Most of the scenes are written to explore Van Damme´s skill with fights. Ron Silver performs his usual villain roleand is very effective. But better of turn your brain off and enjoy "Timecop". My vote is six.
Title (Brazil): "Timecop - O Guardião do Tempo" ("Timecop - The Guardian of Time")
