3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad at all, 13 April 2014
By 
This review is from: Eraser [1996] [DVD] (DVD)
Even with the cuts this isn't a bad Arnie vehicle. As a US marshall specialising on witness relocation Arnie (John Kruger) is brought in to hide a company exec turned FBI whistleblower who has uncovered some dodgy dealings at the arms firm where she works. The movie dishes up all you would expect in terms of action and firefights and Williams is a particularly well drawn and sympathetic character rather than a lazy love interest. Arnie almost does some proper acting in this. This isn't an explosion extravaganza but there are a couple of particularly satisfying set pieces, an escape from an aircraft is quite tense and a crocodile infested shootout at the zoo is pretty cool althought the CGI isn't great at times. The ending delivers plenty of action alongside some high tech weaponry. You can compare various versions over at movie-censorship.com where it does a scene by scene compairson.
