Private Luc Deveraux and his sadistic sergeant, Andrew Scott, got killed in Vietnam. The army uses their bodies for a secret project - reanimating dead soldiers as deadly obedient cyborgs. However, their memories come back too.
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
The film is based upon the Dark Horse comic book series of the same name. See more »
When Walker returns to the present, there should be two of him, since his former self would not have had a reason to travel back to when McComb tried to murder him and his wife, sort of like in Deja Vu with Denzel Washington. See more »

Don't tell anyone I killed you. I'm on bail.

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 »
A few reviewers here need to chill out. 'Tis true, Hyams is no Kubrick, even an infusion of the great man's DNA wouldn't guarantee his next flick would rise above plebian mediocrity. So what? Does Hyams aspire to creative brilliance? or does he just make films at his own pace and at his own level of artistic creativity, which after all is his right to do. If there are those who look down from their own lofty pedestals frowning upon what they see as ungilded simplicity well - whoopy do, go shoot your own celestial Heart of Darkness - make your point that way!
For my money, TIMECOP achieved exactly what it set out to achieve...value for your $12.95 whatever. Certainly no cerebral rush, but honest entertainment nonetheless. I rather doubt the Van Damme brigade were looking for some kinda kick-ass Yoda with nunchukas. Hyams delivered his requisite quota of high kicks per dollar and exploding blood capsules per reel.
The imdb rating for this film is laughable...it rates a minimum of 6.6!
