Eckhart's cold blue eyes, sturdy, unsuspecting frame and his chiselled, pointy Doberman features stir a sense of murky mystery that fit the role particularly well and add extra juice to some rather overcooked scenes.

[Erased] turns out in the end to be a solid VOD release, with Eckhart lifting his leading role out of anonymity and claiming it with a driven if not outstanding performance.

...a fast paced thriller with high tension that never lets up, with award-quality music by Jeff Danna and fine performances by Eckhart, Liberato, and Kurylenko...

'Frances Ha' is the most purely enjoyable and sweet-tempered movie the exceptionally talented Baumbach has made his nearly two decades as a director.

'Erased' is an entertaining enough action outing with plenty of well-done elements to recommend it.

The combination of Arash Amel's convoluted but involving screenplay, Philipp Stoelzl's sure-handed helming, and some brisk editing make Erased one of the more intelligent and gripping international thrillers of recent years.

A confidently engineered, propulsive piece of intelligent action cinema.

Liana Liberato is amazing. The child actor who gave a breakout performance in "Trust" (2010) has blossomed into an actress of tremendous range.

It's as distinct from its genre forerunners as Aldi is from Lidl, but German director Philipp Stölzl keeps things moving at a fair clip.

Lianna Liberato's Amy is stunned when dad suddenly reveals all manner of unexpected skills. What kind of father can kill an assailant with his bare hands, speak umpteen languages and unravel a murky international conspiracy?

Engaging and enjoyable thriller, enlivened by a sharp script, pacey direction, solid action sequences and strong performances from both Aaron Eckhart and Liana Liberato.

Good opening premise and a fine cast, including Olga Kurylenko, but "Erased" is otherwise a story well-travelled.

Arash Amel's plot is a hodgepodge of threadbare motifs, liberally cut and pasted from every thriller you've seen.

Characters we genuinely care about are lost in a movie that almost dissipates before our very eyes.

"Erased" isn't actively bad, it's just doing something that has been done a whole lot better before.

A cold and lifeless feature that offers a couple of good performances yet it fails to tell any sort of an intriguing story.

Although Erased goes through the motions of its various spy games efficiently enough, you never completely forget that you're watching an imitation of far better movies.

It promises little, and half-heartedly delivers.

Eckhart and Liberato may not act as if they're in Retread-land - Olga Kurylenko, meanwhile, as a CIA handler, barely acts at all - but this "Erased" is eminently forgettable.
