Although telling a decent story, on the whole The Expatriate is ultimately rather forgettable - not to mention the frustrating predictability of the narrative.

Liberato gives a smart, nonwhining performance as the good girl coping with Daddy's lack of job security. Eckhart's another matter.

you lose interest in (Erased) very early on.

Eckhart makes a decent Damon stand-in, but there's nothing here than hasn't been done (better) before.

A sort of poor man's Liam Neeson revenge movie, where every call is placed from a pay phone and every other scene seems to take place in a train station.

An unabashed knockoff of the Taken films ...

Everything about Erased feels generic, from the dialogue to the plot twists to the action sequences.

"Taken." In Belgium. Yawn.

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

The film seldom pushes beyond the bare-minimum dictates of the thriller, only rarely offering up a memorable action sequence.

This solid chase thriller uses a template that recalls Taken, without ever reaching the same heights.

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

In a supporting role as a CIA bureau chief, Olga Kurylenko looks half-asleep. Who can blame her?

Erased may be earnest, but at its core, it's empty

There's a distinct softball atmosphere to Erased that's keeps the effort forgettable, unless of course you're a student of the patent application process.

Blessed with a perfect title, Erased will quickly disappear from the memory.

It's a serviceable thriller, but brings nothing new to the arena.

If you're a spy thriller fan or love the perpetually underrated (and in need of a better agent) Eckhart, you may be surprised. Everyone else has a better alternative this weekend.

'Erased' has excellent thriller potential -- but those dysfunctional father/daughter interactions interfere with what I expect from this genre.

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