Erased Reviews

  • A bearable if unremarkable composite of the "Taken" movies and "Three Days of the Condor."

    Jeannette Catsoulis — New York Times

  • A thriller whose storytelling ingredients are so familiar that one could watch it with the sound off and still know what's going on.

    Chuck Wilson — Village Voice

  • Most people can only watch the same movie so many times. But Philipp Stolzl is clearly hopeful that when you're done with "Taken" (and "Taken 2"), you'll want more of the same.

    Elizabeth Weitzman — New York Daily News

  • '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

  • 'Erased' is an entertaining enough action outing with plenty of well-done elements to recommend it.

    Kate Erbland — MSN Movies

  • "Erased" isn't actively bad, it's just doing something that has been done a whole lot better before.

    Tom Long — Detroit News

  • The only sure way to avoid the loss of any more I.Q. points in the world today is to stay away from movies like Erased.

    Rex Reed — New York Observer

  • A confidently engineered, propulsive piece of intelligent action cinema.

    Dennis Harvey — Variety

  • Liberato gives a smart, nonwhining performance as the good girl coping with Daddy's lack of job security. Eckhart's another matter.

    Farran Smith Nehme — New York Post

  • 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

  • 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

  • you lose interest in (Erased) very early on.

    James Luxford — The National

  • Good opening premise and a fine cast, including Olga Kurylenko, but "Erased" is otherwise a story well-travelled.

    Paul Chambers — Movie Chambers

  • 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

  • [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 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

  • Characters we genuinely care about are lost in a movie that almost dissipates before our very eyes.

    Bilge Ebiri

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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
