Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Welcome back, big guy."
‑ Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine
"This is one of those movies where good guys don't miss, and bad guys can't shoot to save their lives."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"Big-budget action filmmaking at its dullest."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"James Caan is good as the heavy, but the movie degenerates into routine comic-book mayhem."
‑ Chuck O'Leary, Fantastica Daily
"Explosions, stunts, big guns, and Ah-nuld."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"The advanced weaponry and nifty scopes notwithstanding, most of the gunplay is pretty standard-issue, with most of the victims being anonymous targets present just to be picked off."
‑ Todd McCarthy, Variety
"The bang-for-the-buck ratio is high enough to appease even the thinnest wallet."
‑ Rick Groen, Globe and Mail
"As entertaining and solid as its leading man."
‑ , Film4
"...a minor addition to the Schwarzenegger oeuvre"
‑ Philip Martin, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
"Second-rate Arnold, but entertainingly over-the-top."
‑ Rob Thomas, Capital Times (Madison, WI)
"It's a movie constructed around three or four self-consciously 'cool' episodes, and passably entertaining as such, but there's also an awful lot of uncool contrivance, coincidence and contempt for the audience."
‑ , Time Out
"Arnold Schwarzenegger tries his hardest to look formidable, forbidding and stern in Eraser, but what he mostly looks is tired."
‑ Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
"It's the sort of plot you've seen so many times before that you forget exactly where you've seen it before, though you know it probably worked better then."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"Schwarzenegger delivers big action, big stunts and high-tech suspense, but Eraser ultimately fails to thrill."
‑ John Wirt, Advocate (Baton Rouge, LA)
"I'm a Schwarzenegger fan, except for the comedies."
‑ Victoria Alexander,
