Review

Our Score
Arnold Schwarzenegger plays the "eraser" of the title - a federal marshal for the Witness Protection Program who helps witnesses by erasing their identities (which usually involves him blowing up some building or other). Of course, for the purposes of this action movie, things don't go to plan, and he and damsel-in-distress Vanessa Williams have to dodge bullets, explosions and quips before our hero can save the day. This disappointing adventure lacks the nonstop gung-ho action and entertainment we've come to expect from a Schwarzenegger movie and won't satisfy even die-hard Arnie fans.

Summary

An arms industry executive is placed in danger after she exposes evidence of illegal deals by an international corporation. The authorities respond by assigning her to the custody of a government agent who specialises in helping federal witnesses disappear from the system. However, when the operative is framed for murder, he is forced to balance his duties with efforts to clear his own name. Action thriller, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, James Caan, Vanessa L Williams and James Coburn.
