Alan Silvestri's score in this is similar to his score is Judge Dredd a year ago. Coincidently Arnold Schwarzenegger was considered for the role of Judge Joseph Dredd before his good friend and expendables and escape plan costar Sylvester Stallone got the part. See more »
When Kruger and Deguerin are fighting on the moving container, in the long shot Lee is seen letting go of the cable and crawling on hands and feet towards the gun. In the next shot she is once again holding on to the cable. See more »
the story goes as follows Lee Cullen a worker for Cyrez Corporation which develops top secret weapons stumbles upon illegal arms deals and acquires the information and barley escapes with help from the F.B.I and is then placed under the protection of U.S Marshell John Kruger who erases the past of witnesses under Witness Protection to give them a future Lee however has been targeted by terrorists to cover up the scam and John Kruger is being targeted by some of his fellow US Marshells and is framed for murder now he has to protect Lee prove his innocence and exposes the illegal arms deal before it happens. I give Eraser seven out of ten because its one of Arnolds best movies of the late 1990's just see it for yourself to believe it.
