    I've never actually seen the JCVD version, how close to the book was it?

    Didn't read the book but the JCVD version was pretty good for it's time. However, I have to insist that they reboot Double Impact or maybe Under Siege before rebooting this one *sarcasm*.

    I really liked the original. One of the more innovative villain deaths out there.

    And who doesn't love JCVD saying "There's never enough time..."

    He looks like Judge Dredd in that picture. With that said, the original film is a pretty decent film. It's a good Van Damme film. And oh boy, that Mia Sara.

    i liked the original JCVD film. hopefully this one will have the gritty look of the last Dredd film.

    My prediction: this is Len Wiseman's next movie, with Kate Beckinsale mocapping Ron Silver.

    Unfortunately, she'd be playing the (much hotter) Mia Sara's role.

    I was actually watching the original about a week ago and it's a really bad movie in my opinion. I don't know anything about the comic though.

    I think Dark Horse are looking at the wrong franchises to adapt. Maybe it's due to creator controlled IPs vs in-house, but where's my Fear Agent film? Or even the surpringly great Umbrella Academy? The Goon is stuck in dev hell, and that's a shame!

    I definitely liked the original. Van Damme does some underestimated sci-fi movies and they are all amongst my favorite Van Damme titles, if not sci-fi movies in general:

    Cyborg(1989)
    Universal Soldier(1994)
    Replicant(2001)


    Unfortunately, I think a remake will turn out more like the Total Recall re-make than anything.

    That's going to be a hell of an audition process, I'll say that much.

    I would hope they cast somebody that actually looks like the guy from the original comics.

    I never watched that Birds of Prey show but I watched the intro to it a little while on youtube and laughed my ass off.

    Why didn't Mia Serra become a bigger star?

    And Mia Sara played the girlfriend on Time Trax, this 90s TV show about a cop from the 22nd century who comes back to the 20th century to capture fugitives who used the time machine Sara's character helped invent to escape. And she was killed in the future timeline...so when Timecop came out a few years later, it all seemed ridiculously similar.

    I don't think I ever saw all of Timecop, but Time Trax was a guiltly pleasure back then. :oldrazz:

    Yeah, I was a big fan of Time Trax when it came out. The special effects were terrible and the story was a little wonky but I still loved the hell out of it. Darien Lambert was awesome!

    High five! :woot:

    I just got both seasons on DVD. Oh, it's cheesy as hell and hasn't aged well at all...but damned if I'm not still loving watching them again. :up:
