The film's rail guns are actually based on real military technology, a fact outlined at some length in Roger Ebert's thumbs up review of the film. As Ebert noted, however, the rail gun technology that actually exists was both in a very early development phase and designed to put such weapons on U.S. Navy ships instead of making for anything that an individual could carry and safely discharge.

The rail gun shoots a small aluminum projectile at "nearly the speed of light", 186,000 miles per second, or about seven times around the earth in a second. Yet, when the bad guys shoot these things, you can actually see the projectiles flying through the air, they're not even as fast as a cheap BB gun. See more »
You want me to help you break into Cyrez?
What, are you shitting me? When you said you needed my help, I thought you wanted me to help you move a sofa or something.
Pull over, up ahead.
Alright, I'm gonna help you out here... All we are gonna need is some tanks, a couple of rocket launchers, and a set of balls like, uh... the King of Bayonne.

This is the kind of film that Arnie should stick to. He plays the Eraser to perfection, having just the right amount of over the top macho humour to balance with the all action heroics. If you like Arnie and you like action films, then you'll love Eraser.
