I’ve always had a soft spot for Eraser but it’s not an Arnold movie that people talk about very often. It turns 20 this year (man, I feel old) and I remember being excited any time this trailer came on in theatres as it features the song I Love You, I’ll Kill You by Enigma. Cross of Changes remains one of my favourite albums of all time, trivia fans.
This trailer also features the late great Don Lafontaine who was THE voiceover man.
SYNOPSIS: John Kruger (Arnold Schwarzenegger) is a top agent in the U.S. Marshalls’ Witness Protection Program; it’s his job to “erase” the pasts of Federal witnesses under his watch and deal with anyone who tries to hurt them.
Kruger’s latest assignment is to protect Lee Cullen (Vanessa Williams), who while working for a major weapons manufacturing firm discovered evidence that the company was selling new, high-tech weapons to intentional terrorists groups with the cooperation of a faction of enemy agents within the United States government. However, when Kruger discovers that the Witness Protection Program has a rat in the house — and that rat is his boss, U.S. Marshall Robert Deguerin (James Caan) — Kruger has to guard his own life while trying to protect Lee’s.
