About the Movie

Action superstar Arnold Schwarzenegger stars in this taut action thriller about an elite federal marshal known as the "Eraser" who guarantees the safety of valuable informers by erasing their identities, relocating them and protecting them from exposure. These are people who've risked everything to expose treachery, murder, vice and corruption by testifying against some of the most sought-after and vicious criminals of our time. The Eraser's latest assignment -- to protect a woman (Vanessa Williams) with a terrifying and powerful secret that she must hide until she can be brought to testify. Co-starring James Caan, Robert Pastorelli and James Coburn.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Even for escapism, this is on the crazy side. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Aug 24, 2008

Fresh: Welcome back, big guy. – Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: The middling result, diverting while it lasts but too silly to recommend, is merely this week's funhouse action pic. – Mike Clark, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: The advanced weaponry and nifty scopes notwithstanding, most of the gunplay is pretty standard-issue, with most of the victims being anonymous targets present just to be picked off. – Todd McCarthy, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

A good, simple action movie

I saw this about a year or two after it first came out. As I remember it, it's a good, solid, simple action movie with an interesting plot, good acting, and typical schwartzenegger lines (the final line comes to mind here. I won't spoil it). The special effects were pretty good- the "rail gun" beams are still one of the coolest things I've seen in an action movie. If you're looking for a good, simple action flick for a movie night, give this one a spin. It won't disappoint.

What an awesome movie

Excellent movie. Plenty of action, humor, & suspense. Robert Pastorelli is hilarious & Vanessa Williams is hot. A nonstop romp. Don't analyze the plot, just enjoy the story.
