He Will Erase Your Past to Protect Your Future.
|Arnold Schwarzenegger plays John Kruger, a U.S. Marshal who "erases" the lives and identities of people entering the Witness Protection Program. Kruger must protect an executive (Vanessa Williams) who's uncovered a deal to put a new superweapon in the wrong hands. It's a do-or-die assignment. So Kruger makes sure he does in a nonstop action spree that includes plunging from an airplane after his parachute, turning ravenous alligators into instant luggage, outbraining ultratech security and outbrawning killers with hypervelocity weapons. For power-packed excitement, Eraser is unstoppable.|
"...more heat, more crash, more burn [than "Die Hard," "True Lies" and "Mission: Impossible"]. Desson Thomson, The Washington Post
"...[Schwarzenegger] knows how to combine impossibly macho action plus attractive self-amusement into a reliable rhythm of ooof! and wink-wink. Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
"Explosions, stunts, big guns, and Ah-nuld. Michael Dequina, Mr. Brown's Movies
"...the script is taut and sure, salted with just the right amount of humor...ingenious and clever action sequences that don't need random fireballs to make the point. Susan Lambert, Box Office Magazine
Editor's NoteMuscle-bound, heavily-accented John Kruger is employed by the Witness Protection Program as an "eraser." In other words, he wipes out a witness's identity in order to save him or her from potential harm. One such person is beautiful Lee Cullen, who possesses vital information regarding super high-tech weapons -- and a government conspiracy connected to them. Krueger's job protecting Cullen will lead to some action-packed, death-defying adventures for the pair, as gunmen and goons and even alligators seem to be waiting for them around every corner. Furthermore, a traitor within the Witness Protection Program is hell-bent on violently erasing Krueger himself.
