When the ability to travel through time is perfected a new law enforcement agency for time travelling crime is created. Working as an officer here is Max Walker (Jean-Claude Van Damme), a good agent he does the job. But then he discovers that someone in charge of the time travelling program may be using it for crime.

There is something soothing about watching a 1990s action movie. You can spot both the hero and the bad guy at first sight and you can almost be sure said hero, will be played by an action star who several times during the movie showcases a special trademark. In Van Damme’s (Double Impact, 1991) case, it is performing splits and roundhouse kicks, something he proves several time in this entertaining action-flick. Van Damme may be the star, but the one who shine brightest in the movie is Sara (Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, 1986) as his wife. Though quiet little screen time, her performance is heartfelt and convincing. It is a good idea to not think the whole time travel dilemma through and there certainly are plot holes to the story, but Timecop is a 1990’s action classic and one of the best movies with the karate kicking Belgian in the lead.
