Timecop was Van Damme's best movie.  Sure he had some good ones before it, but not on this level.  Nothing after it even came close.  Also one of the best time travel movies ever.

No remake could do justice to the original.

It better have a damn good Mia Sara lookalike.

The studios realize that what made the movie so popular was the earnest campy cheesiness of it all, right?  Not everything has to be "gritty".  Sometimes you just want a movie that you sit down halfway through, and still watch the whole thing and enjoy it.

Why would you remake that?!?  That movie was perfect just the way it was.

Patrick: You're not a virgin are you?
Patrick's Sister: [shakes her head]
Patrick: No? What do you mean No?
Patrick's Sister: Well, Steve... but he doesn't count.
Patrick: DOESN'T COUNT?

That movie had my 9 year old self laughing insanely.

Cartman:[the boys are in the movie aisle] Dude, check it out!  Time Cop on DVD. Three copies for eighteen bucks!
Kyle:Why the hell would you want three copies of the same movie?
Cartman:Because one copy is nine ninety-eight! But this way you save like twenty bucks!
Kyle:You only need one copy, r-tard!
Cartman:Okay, fine, dumbass, YOU go ahead and buy one copy for nine ninety-eight!
Kyle:Okay, fine, I will!  [grabs a copy] Huh, wait a minute! I don't even want ONE copy of  Time Cop[puts it back]

Close, but wrong. That award easily goes to Bloodsport. Timecop wasn't a bad movie by any means, but JCVD is best when he's using martial arts to kick ass.

The correct ranking is

Bloodsport
Kickboxer
Universal Soldier
Timecop

Thank you all.


Wrong.

Speaking of Ron Silver, how about we get a theatrical version of Heat Vision and Jack.  I'd watch it.

Never understood how he went back in time by sitting in a rocket car on rails but arrived in the past by walking through a bit of wobbly air. At what point did he get out of the rocket car? Something like Stargate makes sense since there is an identical gate at each end.

I think the writers came up with the "really cool" rocket car idea and the "risk of death by smashing into the wall" bit but when they couldn't work out how to show the arrival just said "Fark it, lets just have him walk out of thin air"

I'm glad I wasn't the only one who thought of that.  Thanks for the laugh.

Wolf892: The premise is flawed. The time cops go back in time to arrest individuals who have attempted to alter history in their favour. But how would you ever know history has been altered? Once altered your present self would just accept this new history as the original one.
The only way time travel movies work (In my opinion) is that once a person goes back into time and alters something they can never return to their present. Instead, from the moment that time is altered the universe is split into two, the original (which the traveler can not return to) and the parallel that hosts the traveler and carries on with the changes made to history.
In a nut shell there's no going into the future and traveling into the past is a one way trip.


Obviously, you're attempting to alter history in your favor by trying to retroactively harm one of the finest films ever committed to...er, film. A time cop will be with you shortly.

what? they thinking of remaking The Monster Squad?? I love the original, leave it alone!!

How about just a reboot of TimeTrax for TV.  It was really the bestest of the cop goes back in time to solve crimes genre.

Sorry, but Street Fighter is the best JCVD movie of all time. It's even better now that the article with the back-story came out recently.

Thank you I always tried to figure that out too. Was the car in some kinda time limbo or something waiting for them to return?

Well now everything has to be "more dark and grittier" because campy fun is dumb now and movie watchers demand more these days! Stupid producers.

Letterman already did a remake: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eE2YD7eI7jE

/And Brisco County Jr. as well.
