The advanced weaponry and nifty scopes notwithstanding, most of the gunplay is pretty standard-issue, with most of the victims being anonymous targets present just to be picked off.

Big-budget action filmmaking at its dullest.

As entertaining and solid as its leading man.

It's the sort of plot you've seen so many times before that you forget exactly where you've seen it before, though you know it probably worked better then.

Time Out
January 26, 2006
It's a movie constructed around three or four self-consciously 'cool' episodes, and passably entertaining as such, but there's also an awful lot of uncool contrivance, coincidence and contempt for the audience.

James Caan is good as the heavy, but the movie degenerates into routine comic-book mayhem.

Schwarzenegger delivers big action, big stunts and high-tech suspense, but Eraser ultimately fails to thrill.

Explosions, stunts, big guns, and Ah-nuld.

Second-rate Arnold, but entertainingly over-the-top.

It's a little better than the godawful script it was based on, but not by much.

A film that didn't need much effort to be erased from viewers' memories.
| Original Score: 2/10

Caan's character is great, Robert Pastorelli's ex-wiseguy is enlisted to help and provide a little stereotype comic relief and Arnold makes a mid-air exit from an airplane that makes for one groovy action sequence.

OK, this movie's plot isn't extremely clever or original, but what I care about is that it's fast and furious, and that director Chuck Russell knows how to craft a kick-ass action scene.

Even by action movie standards, this is a soulless recital of formula.

This is one of those movies where good guys don't miss, and bad guys can't shoot to save their lives.

Se há alguém procurando um filme de ação constante e história inexistente, este é o filme.
