ERASED (Theatrical 2012 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.8|5.0 Starsììì

Erased—nothing new here—fills its 95 minutes with bits and pieces of everything we’ve already seen in a hundred other action flicks. Aaron Eckhart seems a bit weak at times while in dialogue, but does well in most of action scenes. Young Lianna Liberato and Olga Kurylenko distinguish themselves in their roles.

Storyline

Ben Logan (Aaron Eckhart) and his daughter (Lianna Liberato) become the target of the Belgium police, CIA agents, and assassins.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. For a fill-in-some-spare-time afternoon action flick, it works; but, if you’re looking for a fresh, good, action flick revolving around a father and daughter theme choose Taken instead.
