Schwarzenegger's back and tougher than ever! As an elite marshal for the Federal Witness Protection Program, he faces the toughest challenge of his lifetime in the electrifying action thriller Eraser. When Lee Cullen (pop music star Vanessa Williams--The Pickup Artist) stumbles upon a scheme to deliver a new superweapon into the hands of a hostile foreign power, her life as she knows it ends. Enter John Kruger (Arnold Schwarzenegger--The Terminator films), the only man who can protect her from conspirators who will go to any extreme to silence her. To secure her future, Kruger must "erase" her past even if he becomes the next target.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: Eraser's shoot-'em-up action might show off some cutting edge weaponry, but its rote story is embarrassingly obsolete.

'90s Schwarzenegger action movie is extremely violent.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Eraser is a 1996 action movie in which Arnold Schwarzenegger plays a witness protection specialist who must protect a witness from corrupted members of his own team. Even for an action movie from the 1990s, this movie is very violent; the climax alone is one massive battle with firearms, explosives, and Schwarzenegger getting impaled by a metal rod. One of the characters commits suicide, putting a gun to his mouth and pulling the trigger. It has punches, kicks, stabbings, vehicle explosions, characters covered in gasoline and almost set on fire, characters killed by a moving train. Schwarzenegger suffers a screw impaling his hand. Regular profanity is heard, including "f--k," and there's cigarette smoking and drinking. In one scene, there's gratuitous product placement.
