Explosive and Exciting, but no True Lies

Author: scubergmu from Fairfax, Virginia
1 May 2003

For some of the lesser action stars, you know Seagal and Van Damme, this sort of movie would have been some of their finest work. As for Arnold, he has actually headed up some of the best action vehicles out there like Predator (1987), T2 (1991), and True Lies (1994). Eraser is not in the same league as these action films. Though it certainly tried to follow in their traditions of mega-budgets and mega-violence, there was just something missing. To its credit, Eraser did come equipped huge special effects, a half dozen major action sequences each more explosive than the last, decent comic relief, and a cool villain. But it just didn't have that distinctive edge plot-wise that those other ones had. As far as characters go, only James Caan managed to stand out, even though the character he was playing was thoroughly over-the-top. But of course, so was the rest of the film so it was all good. It is always entertaining to watch a villain with real panache, and he had that going on here. So bottom line, Eraser was a solid Summer action movie, the kind worth seeing, but not necessarily worth buying. Better to get a copy of Predator instead.

Great

Author: jef the movie man from Canada
11 November 2002

This is probably my favourite Schwarzenegger movie.I mean i liked Terminator but really this is a better movie. I like the story and the acting is great. It also has a lot of comedy. This is tied for 1 on my favourite Schwarzenegger movies list,the other one being Red Heat.I know most people like the terminator movies and i do to.These movies are better because they make more sense.In all i would give this movie 10 out of ten because it is so exciting and has good action. Go see it.You won't be dissappointed.

Jon Monsarrat review: For action buffs only, but good

8/10
Author: johnnymonsarrat from United States
7 May 2002

"Eraser" is one of the good ones in a long string of Arnold Schwartzenegger films. First see "Terminator", "Terminator 2", and "True Lies". Eraser is #4 of his set, and the last of the good ones before a sharp drop to #5 and #6 ("Last Action Hero", and "End of Days", in my opinion.)

Lots and lots of stuff blows up. There are some great special effects, the story makes sense (more or less). While it's not high art, and the story lacks all manner of powerful characterization, the whole thing hangs together pretty well as an action film.

Who should see this film:

-- Action film buffs, including kids, and take along your SO

Drama buffs who're going slumming: check out Terminator 2 instead. I'll give "Eraser" a 9 out of 10.

Arnold at his best

Author: Real Critic
14 January 2002

Arnold Schwarzenegger plays a U.S. Marshal who provides protection to a woman in danger, then becomes marked for death also. Their only hope for survival is for him to protect both their lives. If you're just looking for a good time, then watch this film. There's plenty of violent and high-tech action to spare. 3/4

Arnold does it again

Another great action film courtesy of Arnold Schwarzenegger. He plays a U.S. Marshal who protects a woman, but then becomes a target as well! There only chance for survival is for him to protect both of them. Exciting, violent, and high-tech, this is a film that you don't want to miss. Hang on during this thrill ride! 3/4

Arnold does it again

Author: Real Critic
8 January 2002

Slick, stylish, high-tech, and extremely violent action thriller is one of Arnold's best. He plays a U.S. Marshal who protects a woman, then must fight for his life when he becomes marked for death also. Forget what you've heard, this is a must see for Arnold fans. A great action film just like his previous hit True Lies. 3/4

Arnold's Last Great Action Movie.

8/10
Author: mvilla from Robinson, IL
11 February 2001

This movie stays with the "Arnold Formula". Lots of action, one-liners, and a fast pace. And it works! Fans will be happy with this movie. After this he took a brake from action for a couple of years. He returned in 1999 with the very average END OF DAYS. Skip that and watch this if you want to see Arnold in top form.

Fun all around

8/10
Author: Anders Åslund (anders.aslund@xpress.se) from Karlstad, Sweden
21 February 2000

This film is fun fun fun fun! I laughed constantly when I saw it, and for you guys who don't like it because it's not "serious": it's not supposed to be!

Arnie has a knack for making these absolute horrors of films, and viewed from a more in-depth POV, they would last long. But as comedy, they're great. This is one of them, and it's really good.

The best of Arnold's 90's flicks

8/10
Author: Cross18 from Maine
5 January 2000

This is a very entertaining action film. This is Arnold's best film of the decade (yes, I'm including Terminator 2). Arnold plays a US Marshall who has to protect a sexy witness (Vanessa Wiliams) from a bunch of corrupt Government agents armed with high tech weapons. Great action scenes and stuntwork.

Typical shoot-'em-up

Author: Enid-3 from Canada
23 February 1999

This is a completely typical, and unbelievable, action film - all the sophisticated weaponry they throw at him can't give Arnold Schwarzenegger more than a broken arm. Nonetheless, very good viewing for those times when you are tired, and want to put your brain into neutral.
