Timecop is a 1994 science fiction action movie starring Jean-Claude Van Damme as Max Walker, a time-traveling police officer tasked with preventing criminals from altering the course of history. The film is directed by Peter Hyams and features a cast that includes Mia Sara as Melissa, Max's wife, and Ron Silver as Senator Aaron McComb, the villain of the story.

The film is set in the year 2004, where time travel has been invented and has become a regular part of life. However, time travel is strictly controlled by the government, who use it to prevent criminals from changing the past for their own purposes. Max Walker is a Time Enforcement Commission (TEC) agent tasked with monitoring and regulating the use of time travel to prevent unauthorized changes to the timeline.

Throughout the film, Max travels back and forth through time, chasing after a rogue senator who is attempting to alter history and enrich himself by investing in the past. As Max delves deeper into the case, he uncovers a conspiracy involving high-level government officials and a corporation seeking to take over control of the TEC.

The film features a mix of time-traveling action and drama as Max navigates his personal life alongside his time-traveling duties. Mia Sara's character, Melissa, plays a prominent role in the movie as Max's wife, who is killed in an attack on their home. Max's grief and determination to find her killer are a recurring theme throughout the film.

One of the most memorable scenes in the movie involves Max traveling back to 1994 to prevent a terrorist attack on the TEC headquarters. His time-traveling technology is limited, and he can only remain in the past for a short amount of time before being pulled back to the present. This creates a thrilling race against time as Max attempts to stop the terrorist before returning to the future.

Jean-Claude Van Damme delivers an impressive performance as Max Walker, capturing the character's mix of toughness and vulnerability. The action scenes are well choreographed and keep the audience engaged throughout the film. Mia Sara also shines as Melissa, bringing emotional depth to her role.

Ron Silver is a standout as the villainous Senator McComb, delivering a memorable performance as a corrupt politician willing to do anything to achieve his goals. The movie's themes of greed and corruption are still relevant today, maintaining the movie's relevance despite its age.

Overall, Timecop is a solid '90s action movie with an interesting premise and strong performances from its cast. The time-traveling aspect adds a unique twist to the traditional action movie formula, and the film's themes still resonate with audiences today.

Timecop is a 1994 thriller with a runtime of 1 hour and 38 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.9 and a MetaScore of 48.
