Eraser (Blu-ray version)
on 29 October 2013
Director Chuck Russell delivers 1990's action hero Arnold Schwarzenegger in this 1996 action which was released on Blu-Ray in 2008. This follows the usual plot for a film of this vintage in fact for a Schwarzenegger vehicle the violence has been toned down from his previous outings but there is enough here for the fans to enjoy and the get their teeth into as U.S. Marshal John Kruger played by Arnold Schwarzenegger "erases" people's old lives so they can enter the Witness Protection Program.
The up-grade from DVD to Blu-ray is worth it as long as you can get the disc cheap enough and the Blu-ray is the full uncut version of the movie 115 minutes not the cut version that appeared on the DVD.
This region free 25GB disc is encoded using the VC-1 codec which is in full 1080p resolution the aspect ratio has been changed from the original 2.39.1 to 2.40.1 this has no affect on the picture quality at all, the soundtrack has not been up-graded to English Dolby TrueHD 5.1 there also English, French and Spanish Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtracks as well along with French, Spanish, Chinese, Danish, Finnish, German, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Portuguese and Swedish subtitles there also English subtitles for the hard of hearing
