John Kruger is a U.S. marshal who is assigned to protect Lee Cullen, who works for the Cyrez Corporation, a company that manufactures top secret weapons for the military. Lee knows about a scam going on within Cyrez Corporation, and the man behind it is determined to silence Lee, because without Lee, the FBI has no case against the Cyrez Corporation. After taking Lee to New York City to hide her, John discovers that his friend, U.S. Marshal Robert Deguerin, is the mastermind behind the scam! Written by

Although only Tony Puryear and Walon Green are credited with the film's screenplay - and the two of them along with Michael S. Chernuchin for the film's story - the film went through so many revisions from so many different writers that the final shooting script reportedly "looked like a rainbow". Frank Darabont and William Wisher Jr. reportedly did multiple rewrites during the production as well. See more »
Possibly deliberate: When the EM gun is used in the attack on Lee's (Vanessa Williams) house, it needs to be plugged into a satchel battery to operate. In the climactic battle, none of the EM guns have a battery pack. This may be deliberate to indicate a prototype vs production model, or to show they can hold a limited internal charge. See more »
Arnold delivers bigger than life action once again
When this movie came out, it had been two years since Arnold had been on the big screen. Well, it was worth the wait as ERASER was a great action/thriller. Really cool special effects, a great plot. Arnold shows he is still the top star of action movies.
