enjoyable if routine action film
8 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Great European locations are a highlight of this 2012 film, Erased, starring Aaron Eckhart. The film is also known as Ex-Patriate.

Eckhart plays an ex-CIA operative, Ben Logan, working for a European company. His wife is deceased, and he's there with his daughter (Liana Liberato), a typical teenager whose sullen behavior can be attributed to just losing her mother and being uprooted from her home.

Ben is supposed to test security systems made by the company for whom he works, but returning to the office one night, he finds that the entire company has disappeared, including the employees and his entire identity along with them. He soon finds out he's going to be terminated -- and by terminated, like in the ground terminated, so he and his daughter take off. He's determined to find out what's going on.

Shades of the Bourne saga, not as good, but still suspenseful with lots of action. I really like Aaron Eckhart and would love to see him in another leading role. He's very likable and attractive.

Entertaining without being sensational
