When Kruger lands on top of the car, after falling out of the jet. Kruger asks the boy and girl where he is and the girl replies "Earth, welcome." That line was written and played for a laugh. See more »
The nurse responds to Johnny C's "flat-line" asystole rhythm by saying "he's fibrillating." Medical personnel do not shock without checking for a pulse. Nor would they shock someone moving or speaking. This is obviously a clear shot at some medical personnel lacking training or just inserted as a gag for the viewer. See more »
I just saw "Eraser" again, and I am suprised to find that I enjoyed it more than when I saw it before. It Delivers thrills, laughs and lot of action. Schwarzenegger is not Robert DeNiro, but he is likeable in his role here. The story is intriguing: A U.S. Marshall that erases peoples identities. This is not Schwarzengger's best movie but it is definitly worth a look.
