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.

'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.

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.

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

A bearable if unremarkable composite of the "Taken" movies and "Three Days of the Condor."

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.

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.

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.

An unabashed knockoff of the Taken films ...

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.
