Arnold Schwarzenegger is back in top form as a U.S. Marshal protecting federal witness Vanessa Williams from government turncoats selling an advanced super-gun to terrorists.
If you're going to submit yourself to a dazzling example of mainstream action, this thriller is as good a choice as any. Eraser is a live-action cartoon, the kind of movie in which Arnold Schwarzenegger can survive nail bombs, hails of bullets, an attack by voracious alligators ("You're luggage," he says, after killing one of the beasts), and still emerge from the mayhem relatively intact. Arnold plays an "eraser" from the Federal Witness Protection Program, so named because he can virtually erase the existence of anyone he's been assigned to protect. His latest beneficiary is an FBI employee (Vanessa Williams) who stumbled across a secret government group involved in the sale and export of an advanced weapon capable of shooting rounds at nearly the speed of light. Fantastic action sequences are handled with flair by director Charles Russell (The Mask), so it's easy to forgive the fact that this movie is almost completely ridiculous. --Jeff Shannon

Very Bad-Corny, at times.
(opposed to good-corny, of course)
I love the Arnold one-liners, but a lot of the action, inbetween major scenes, seems really phoned-in.
It was an entertaining movie about 2/3 of the way through, but the last 1/3 was just awful.
The Rail Gun technology was pretty cool, but they missed their shots the majority of the time, and they kept treating it like it was a firefight sort of weapon, which I think was a mistake.
This is one of those movies where, whenever anything happens, everything explodes.
An action movie is a lot more than just one explosion, and one-liner, after another.
The casting was kind of odd, by the way, and some of the bad guys seemed a little iffy.
The main guy they chose to play the bad-guy was kind of a dud, I think.
He just doesn't make much sense opposite Arnold.
He is definitely a cop-type actor, and he does the bad-guy-shtick okay, but I don't think he was a great choice for this role, and I think that detracted from the film in a pretty big way.
Anyways, if you haven't seen it, it might be worth a watch, but there are much better action movies of a similar vein, from Arnold, that would be more worth your time, such as "True Lies", for example.
In reality, If one single Railgun existed, it would probably be the most powerful weapon on Earth, capable of assassinations with extreme precision, at great distance, and with great stealth.
One of many reasons it is dangerously approaching B-Movie status; and also kind of reminded me of "Small Soldiers", in a way. (haha)
At any rate, you get the idea. The idea is to give the audience a bit of a thrill, a bit of suspense as to the outcome, and lots of fun; to my way of thinking the goal was accomplished in this movie
Good cast surrounds him, which is always a plus. I don't want to go into too many details for fear of spoiling the movie for anyone who has not seen it. My recommendation is go get a copy and enjoy it. You will want to see it again
