Most people can only watch the same movie so many times. But Philipp Stölzl is clearly hopeful that when you're done with "Taken" (and "Taken 2"), you'll want more of the same.

A confidently engineered, propulsive piece of intelligent action cinema.
May 16, 2013
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.

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.

"Taken." In Belgium. Yawn.

The only sure way to avoid the loss of any more I.Q. points in the world today is to stay away from movies like Erased.

A thriller whose storytelling ingredients are so familiar that one could watch it with the sound off and still know what's going on.

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

An unabashed knockoff of the Taken films ...

'Erased' has excellent thriller potential -- but those dysfunctional father/daughter interactions interfere with what I expect from this genre.
May 5, 2013
It's a serviceable thriller, but brings nothing new to the arena.
May 5, 2013
The film seldom pushes beyond the bare-minimum dictates of the thriller, only rarely offering up a memorable action sequence.

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

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

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

April 5, 2013
It's a smartly paced and decently made mixture of The Bourne Conspiracy and Taken but has one major drawback: Eckhart is neither Matt Damon nor Liam Neeson.

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.

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

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

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?
