Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This is a low-budget sequel/"reboot" marred by corny dialogue and hilariously bad CGI. Eraser: Reborn, in spite of whatever tenuous connections it may have to the '90s blockbuster action movie with Arnold Schwarzenegger, is pretty much just a formulaic action movie with the expected plot twists and excessive violence. The dialogue is filled with forced and idiotic catchphrases ("You've been erased") and the kinds of cliches from both the good and the bad guys that comes across as unintentionally funny and bombastic in '90s action movies, but now comes across as sad and empty.

The best that can be said about this movie is that most of it is set in South Africa, and they do try to make the most of the location. Not just as backdrops for chase scenes or fight scenes, but to try and reveal something of the culture. It mostly works, but it's likely to be forgotten by a crucial scene involving a CGI rhinoceros that makes those early attempts at CGI in '90s movies look timeless rather than hilariously outdated. If you "erase" all your critical faculties and innate skepticism, there's a chance you'll enjoy the action sequences, but really, that's asking way too much of the viewer.
