Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Arash Amel's plot is a hodgepodge of threadbare motifs, liberally cut and pasted from every thriller you've seen."
‑ Michael Posner, Globe and Mail
"'Erased' is an entertaining enough action outing with plenty of well-done elements to recommend it."
‑ Kate Erbland, MSN Movies
"you lose interest in (Erased) very early on."
‑ James Luxford, The National
"[Erased] turns out in the end to be a solid VOD release, with Eckhart lifting his leading role out of anonymity and claiming it with a driven if not outstanding performance."
‑ Mark Zhuravsky, The Playlist
"A cold and lifeless feature that offers a couple of good performances yet it fails to tell any sort of an intriguing story."
‑ JimmyO, JoBlo's Movie Emporium
""Erased" isn't actively bad, it's just doing something that has been done a whole lot better before."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"It promises little, and half-heartedly delivers."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"Good opening premise and a fine cast, including Olga Kurylenko, but "Erased" is otherwise a story well-travelled."
‑ Paul Chambers, Movie Chambers
"...a fast paced thriller with high tension that never lets up, with award-quality music by Jeff Danna and fine performances by Eckhart, Liberato, and Kurylenko..."
‑ Tony Medley, Tolucan Times
"The combination of Arash Amel's convoluted but involving screenplay, Philipp Stoelzl's sure-handed helming, and some brisk editing make Erased one of the more intelligent and gripping international thrillers of recent years."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"'Frances Ha' is the most purely enjoyable and sweet-tempered movie the exceptionally talented Baumbach has made his nearly two decades as a director."
‑ Glenn Kenny, MSN Movies
"Eckhart and Liberato may not act as if they're in Retread-land - Olga Kurylenko, meanwhile, as a CIA handler, barely acts at all - but this "Erased" is eminently forgettable."
‑ Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
"Eckhart's cold blue eyes, sturdy, unsuspecting frame and his chiselled, pointy Doberman features stir a sense of murky mystery that fit the role particularly well and add extra juice to some rather overcooked scenes."
‑ Katherine Monk, Canada.com
"Characters we genuinely care about are lost in a movie that almost dissipates before our very eyes."
‑ Bilge Ebiri, Vulture
"Although Erased goes through the motions of its various spy games efficiently enough, you never completely forget that you're watching an imitation of far better movies."
‑ Ethan Alter, Television Without Pity
