ERASER (Theatrical Release USA 1996)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.5|5.0 Starsììì

Eraser—definitely not a Terminator 1, 2, or 3—places Arnold Schwarzenegger a little out of his league. There may be detective movies that Mr. Schwarzenegger can play, just not this one.

Storyline

U.S. Marshall John Kruger’s (Arnold Schwarzenegger) job entails erasure of crime witnesses from United States records by faking their deaths so they can begin new, safe lives. But, in the case of Lee Cullen (Vanessa Williams), erasing becomes complicated and John Kruger finds the necessity of cleaning up all the pieces includes erasing the ‘bad guys’ as well.

Additional Thanks

Good work for Director and Executive Producer Chuck Russell. Thank you to Executive Producer Michael Tadross for his help in making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: WitSec Chief Beller (James Coburn), Johnny Casteleone (Robert Pastorelli), WitSec Deputy Monroe (Danny Nucci), Undersecretary of Defense Daniel Harper (Andy Romano), William Donohue (James Cromwell), and U.S. Marshall Robert DeGuerin (James Caan).


Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. The storyline has been well written and the action moves along nicely.
