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
In the beginning, Melissa hears in the mall "Does Anybody Know What Time it Is?", by Chicago. Its lyrics has to do with a stranger asking for the time. See more »
At the start of the film, Walker is attacked at his house by a group of armed men. Later in the film we learn that they had travelled back in time to assassinate him before he could become a threat to McComb. However, this makes no sense with the film's time travel rules, since changes to the past only occur after someone in the future decides to travel back. This means there should be no time-line where McComb's thugs travel back to assassinate Walker before Walker gets in McComb's way at the warehouse, even though this is his primary character motivation throughout the entire film.

You're allowed to have a life, you know. I read it in a manual someplace.

The 2009 Warner Bros. DVD release plasters the Largo Entertainment logo with an Intermedia logo. The Largo logo after the end credits is also deleted and creates an abrupt end with the closing credit music. See more »
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...
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)...
