Timecop is sci-fi action flick written by Mark Verheiden and Mike Richardson. It's based on a Dark Horse Comic of the same name and by the same guys. Jean-Claude Van Damme plays the main character Max Walker. Ron Silver plays an unorthodox Senator while Mia Sara is cast in the role of Walker's wife. The basis of the story follows Max Walker as he leaps through time, fighting and arresting criminals who abuse the new technology. As a rookie Time Enforcement Commission (TEC) agent, Walker witnesses the death of his wife Melissa when his home is attacked and explodes.
The movie jumps to Walker 10 years later. He's now been with TEC for a decade and is one of the Commission's best agents. He chases down former partners, sees the Senator as a younger man and generally discovers a lot of nefarious plots in motion.
