Product Description

Jean-Claude Van Damme stars in this time-travelling sci-fi thriller. In Washington, 1994, Max Walker (Van Damme) is an average cop enjoying life with his new wife (Mia Sara). One night she is murdered and the following morning Walker volunteers for a dangerous assignment in a new police department. Ten years later time-travelling is a reality and Walker is a maverick Timecop, going back and forth catching villains all over history. Then the opportunity arises to save his wife when he goes back to 1994 to face a politician who wants to take over the world.

From Amazon.co.uk

Pay no attention to the fact that Timecop is an insult to intelligent science fiction, and that it gradually succumbs to an acute case of the sillies. It is a Jean-Claude Van Damme movie, after all, so check your brain at the door and enjoy this action flick set in the year 2004. Van Damme plays an officer in the Time Enforcement Police, assigned to prevent criminals from travelling to the past with the intent of altering the future. Ron Silver plays the evil politician who plots to retrieve a stockpile of gold from the Civil War to finance his latest campaign. The film is clever to a point, and entertaining if you can ignore the dumb jokes and inconsistencies. Best of all, it's an above-average vehicle for Van Damme (relatively speaking), who gets to kick some villainous butt and share a few scenes with Mia Sara, who plays the Timecop's wife. As Van Damme fans can tell you, this is one of the action star's better movies. -- Jeff Shannon, Amazon.com --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I wasnt expecting this to be a good film at all. For one a film about a cop whose job it is, is to stop time travel didnt seem like my kind of film. But this actualy happens to be one Van Dammes best films. Good acting, good action and a intresting story which has some good twists.

This ranks in my top 5 Van Damme films.

Timecop clearly wasn't filmed to the very highest technical standards - I was struck by the contrast with Alien (a 15-years-older film) which I watched on broadcast HD the same evening. That said, Timecop is high enough quality to make the Blu-ray transfer worth having. I am not sure I would recommend getting the Blu-ray to replace a DVD unless you have money to burn, but definitely worth the extra if you just want a copy to add to your library. As usual with Blu-ray, you can pick out details in printed signs etc., in the scene backgrounds, which is interesting in its own right. The sound track is fine with plenty of punch in the explosions and gunfire. Also, whatever the details of film stock, cameras and so on, the colour palette of the movie is often rewarding.

As for the movie itself, it keeps drawing me back despite its flaws. Its handling of time paradoxes seems vague, almost as if it's a time-travel movie made by people who don't actually find time-travel very interesting. The plot is skeletal. Still, the emotional aspects work despite - or perhaps because of - Van Damme's rather flat portrayal, the narrative drive is not lacking, and the near-future setting has a curious plausibility. Perhaps because of budget limitations, most of the future world is still our old one - actually more likely when you think about it. Some of the B-movie / budget-limited aspects - a time machine that accelerates by spurting rocket flames out the back, for luv's sake - will generate affection or derision, according to your taste. As you will guess, I tend towards affection.

Finally, the James Bond cast-off one-liners ("that had to hurt" after killing a baddy, I mean come on!) and the (deliberately?

This Boulevard Entertainment Dvd is a poor release of a pretty good film.

It's Widescreen but is non-anamorphic (it will look squashed on your Widescreen TV)
Has only Stereo sound
English Subtitles only
And the Trailer is the only extra.

The picture and sound are good throughout considering, and it can be bought for a penny and postage.

I always did like this film but would not buy it because of the poor Quality of the Video in either Vhs or DVD, even when on the TV broadcast quality was often very poor, However this Bluray is very fair, much less grain and appears to be 4 mins longer than the DVD so uncut? however a total lack of any extras is a let down.

First, to get the things straight, I am the first to recognise that JC Van Damme is not really an actor and his movies are usually nothing more that settings for some martial arts displays. But "Timecop" is the exception to the rule.

This is a quite clever story about a very special police force, which fights against the abuse of time travelling. Timecops search fugitives who escaped in the past (there is no travels into the future), bandits, who go to the past to loot and plunder using modern weaponry, crooks, who try to make fortune using knowledge of future events, finally terrorists, who try to influence the future by changing the past. The whole concept is vaguely inspired by SF novel by Paul Anderson, "Time Patrol". JC Van Damme plays one of the Timecops, Mia Sara (delicious and distinguished) is his wife and Gloria Reuben (highly attractive and well spoken) is his new partner. No more details about the story, but it is surprisingly clever, touching and contains surprising twists. There is only limited kicking and jumping from JC Van Damme, so if you are a martial arts fan, you will be probably unsatisfied - but if you enjoy good SF, you will be delighted. And the ending is really, really unexpected, and not stupid at all.

Bottom line, this is a nice surprise from JC Van Damme, for whom it is the best role until now. I enjoyed it very much.

What not to like about this movie. It has action, time travel, the beautiful Mia Sara and of course the man himself JCVD at his finest moment. Action, action and action ! Picture quality and audio is simply amazing for a catalogue 90's titles on a single 25GB blu ray disc. Highly Recommended for a good weekend viewing.

The transfers pretty good, I would say both the movie and video quality is a 4 out of 5. If you're a fan of JCVD, like me, I can highly recommend this product. And this is not windowboxed like the dvd-version.

One of the view films of the main actor (in my lowly opinion) showed well he could act.

The film itself I thought very entertaining, and have since watched it a few times.
If your a sci-fi viewer then this film, plus Timecop 2 played by another actor, is for you.
