“Eraser: Reborn” (Blu-ray+Digital) Review by Suzanne 6/1/22
If you’re a fan of action flicks, you’ll probably enjoy this low-budget movie. It’s a reboot of a 90’s movie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Vanessa Williams, James Caan and other big names. I’m sure that was a much better movie. This one has a lot more technology. The movie is about a special FBI team that helps witnesses in WitSec get “erased” so they can stay alive. It stars British actor Dominic Sherwood, who does a passable job here with an American accent; and Jacky Lai, who plays the woman being protected (or, erased). The script is not very interesting and everyone seems to mumble a lot. It does have a lot of shooting, running, chasing, etc. There are some interesting twists and turns in the plot that you might not anticipate.
The DVD just has one feature about the making of the movie.
