Timecop Movie Download Hd
To monitor the illegal use of time travel, the government founds the Time Enforcement Commission, a high-tech police department under Senator Aaron McComb's supervision. However, ten years later, in 2004, the devoted TEC agent, Max Walker, who is still reeling from the untimely and rather mysterious loss of his wife, is summoned to unearth a conspiracy which dates back in time. Will the haunted Timecop use this advanced technology to thwart the evil plans of the megalomaniac who is behind a string of hideous time-crimes? In the end, will Max tamper with the past to right the wrongs, no matter the cost?
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.
I remember watching "Timecop" a long, long time ago when it came out and watched it on VHS.
Then I stumbled upon it while browsing through the Netflix archive, so I decided to sit down and watch it again. And it turned out that this old Jean Claude Van Damme movie was actually as good and entertaining as I remembered it to be.
This is indeed a traditional Van Damme movie in every sense, and it is a very stereotypical early 1990s action movie for better or worse.
There was a good combination of action story and martial arts in the movie. And with this being a Van Damme movie, then of course there is a good amount of those ingredients.
The storyline is generic, of course, as one would expect from a movie such as this. And it follows that stereotypical formula that made up the entirety of the action movies from the 1990s. You know the outcome of the movie before you even press the play button.
If you enjoy the wonderful 1990s action movies and/or being a fan of Jean Claude Van Damme, then "Timecop" is definitely a movie well worth sitting down to watch.
Timecop starts in Washington during 1994 where cop Max Walker (Jean-Claude Van Damme) & his wife Melissa (Mia Sara) are attacked, Max is badly beaten & Melissa is killed. Meanwhile at the same time Governemnt agent George Spota (Scott Lawrence) tells a private Senate committee that time travel is a reality & that he proposes the formation of an agency called the Time Enforcement Commission to police time travel & prevent people changing the future by altering the past. Jump forward to the future year of 2004(!) where Max Walker is now one of the TEC's top agents but his partner Lyle Atwood (Jason Schombing) has turned dirty & is altering history in 1920's New York, when caught Lyle implicates Presidential candidate Senator Aaron McComb (Ron Silver). Max sets out to prove McComb is going back in time to make money in order to buy himself into the White House & soon finds himself dodging bullets in an attempt to stay alive...
This American Japanese co-production was directed by Peter Hyams who as usual also was the director of photography & one has to say that Timecop is a throughly entertaining sci-fi action thriller that passes 100 odd minutes with the minimum of fuss. The script was by Mark Verheiden who co-created the Dark Horse comic book along with Mike Richardson on which the film is based & is a good solid time travelling action film, it's not in the same league as The Terminator (1984) since it's nowhere near as thoughtful or exciting but I liked it all the same. The time travel aspects make you think on occasion, some of the paradox's & plot holes churn around in your head a little bit but it just about works. For instance a character claims they carbon dated some gold bullion stolen from the seventeenth century, well you can't carbon date anything that didn't have living cells amongst other issues. I liked the way JCVD's character by the halfway stage of the film didn't belong to any sort of time line at all, he didn't belong in the past since his younger self already existed there & didn't belong in the future since McComb had changed the future so much. I also liked the cynicism of the script & plot, the way that the makers thought anyone with access to time travel would go back simply to make money which in reality would surely be most people's motive, it would certainly be mine! The character's are pretty good, JCVD's burnt out bitter cop is par for the course, Ron Silver's villain is OK but if all he wanted was money why not go back & place some heavy bets on the horses or other sporting events? Why not go back & give his earlier self the lottery numbers for several huge jackpots?
Director Hymans & JCVD team up for the first time & would go on to make the even better Die Hard (1988) clone Sudden Death (1995) the following year. I like how the action is varied, the fights are extremely well choreographed from your typical JCVD martial arts moves to the more basic brutal pub brawl type fights, there are the expected shoot-outs with futuristic weaponry, an exploding house, JCVD does the splits twice & he almost gets run over by a huge truck. The makers concept of time travel seems quite good as well with the whole ripples in time idea being used both thematically with the consequences of time travel described as ripples in a pond & visually with the actual appearance of what time travel looks like as JCVD walks through ripples in thin air. The special effects are good, they aren't overdone & are there for story purposes rather than just for the hell of it.
With a supposed budget of about $28,000,000 Timecop had a decent amount of money spent on it, the production values are good & it's well made although it has dated a little bit since it's idea of the year 2004 is, or rather was way off with some particularly silly looking cars. Filmed largely in Canada. The acting is alright, JCVD at least tries & Ron Silver makes for a suitably slimy bad guy.
Timecop is an entertaining sci-fi time travel action thriller that isn't up there with the likes of The Terminator but isn't too far behind, I liked it & it's as simple & straight forward as that. Followed by the direct to DVD sequel Timecop: The Berlin Decision (2003) with Jason Scott Lee taking over from JCVD & a Timecop (1997 - 1998) TV series was made which ran for one season & nine episodes.
For the most part, Hyams’ lackluster direction and the repetitive quality of the action sequences squander an intriguing premise and impressive production design, leaving few moments that elicit the sort of “Wow!" response such fare needs in order to prosper.
