A Fun HourBy John Fairhurst from Edgeley Stockport UK , 30 Dec 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]This might or might not be a bad martial arts movie but I didn't get it for that so what there was, was OK. I like time travel stories and this story explores what would happen to a timeline where the past was changeable, where you could rid history of the evil. Chang is a time cop, charged with making sure that no one does kill Hitler or otherwise change history - for along with the bad, you tend to do away with the good! Now, a former student of his father is killing off all the TEC agents in revenge for them killing his wife on an attempt on Hitler. Can Chang get him before an ancestor is killed wiping out Chang himself? The story is a bit thin, but it doesn't take itself too seriously and all the changes Chang sees in his supposed present makes a nice counterpoint to his missions into the past to rectify the changes being made there.

Incomprehensible JumbleBy AzuraMontana (1 review) , 06 Dec 2011Such a shame. Even though this was clearly a film on a budget, the special effects were pretty decent. The story was incomprehenisble with some very poor script writing. A popcorn action movie should at least have a story you can follow. Not aging characters appropriately did not help when characters were flitting backwards and forwards, and in the end, I'm still not quite sure what the point of the story was - it seemed to get lost halfway through. No character development whatsoever. In the final showdown, when Chan clearly has a solution in front of him, this is thrown away to enable him to rip his shirt off and engage in generic kung fu fisticuffs that was better staged in Jet Li's 'The One'. Such potential wasted - a mish mash of 'stuff' pieced together to create a jumbled sequence of set pieces.
very goodBy a customer from england , 16 Feb 2008a good follow up to the first timecop but not as good as the first!
On a real budget!By Paul Daykin from Darlington , 13 Sep 2006This was a real B movie! Talk about being shot on a small budget? It was watchable and i could see what they were trying to do by making a sequel to a half decent film but it turned out to be a bit of a turkey! Get it if you've seen everything else, otherwise it's just not worth an hour and a half of your life!
pretty disapointingBy Tony Webber from Wiltshire, UK , 24 Jun 2005not a patch on the original staring van damme. the plot of this one was poor, wooden acting didnt help
Confusing!!By a customer from Whitburn, Scotland , 03 Apr 2005I enjoyed the first one and thought this would be as good even though it was not Van Damme in it, I made a mistake. The film was ok but when all the time travelling began and history started changing thats when I lost it and my interest began to go aswell.
