Top-notch action sequences and exciting stunt work highlight this fast-moving thriller. John Kruger (Arnold Schwarzenegger) is a top agent in the U.S. Marshalls' Witness Protection Program; it's his job to "erase" the pasts of Federal witnesses under his watch and deal with anyone who tries to hurt them. Kruger's latest assignment is to protect Lee Cullen (Vanessa Williams), who while working for a major weapons manufacturing firm discovered evidence that the company was selling new, high-tech weapons to intentional terrorists groups with the cooperation of a faction of enemy agents within the United States government. However, when Kruger discovers that the Witness Protection Program has a rat in the house -- and that rat is his boss, U.S. Marshall Robert Deguerin (James Caan) -- Kruger has to guard his own life while trying to protect Lee's. The supporting cast is highlighted by James Coburn, Robert Pastorelli, and James Cromwell.~Mark Deming
Arnold makes people disappear, in this case it's Vanessa Williams. Arnold has his guns, muscles and sense of humor that makes us love him! James Caan and Robert Pastorelli costar in this classic Schwarzenegger action flick!
Growing up in the 90's, Arnold Schwarzenegger was an action movie legend, so this is one of those movies that is a guilty pleasure to watch, even though the critics seem to dislike it. WB brings us a good Blu-ray release of Eraser with excellent video and audio quality in general. Hopefully a remastered 4K + Blu-ray will eventually be released since this title could use an upgrade with Dolby ATMOS audio technology. This movie is on sale every so often, so I can definitely recommend it in the meantime.
This movie is one of Arnold's better films. In addtion it was Vanessa Williams first acting role. Perfect DVD to include as part of your DVD collection. The movie will keep you on the edge of your seat.
