» Eraser » would probably have disappeared into obscurity if Arnold Schwarzenegger hadn’t filled the role of the eponymous hero. Due to its level of popularity, the Austrian attracted more than two million viewers to the cinemas in Germany alone and the action thriller grossed more than twice its budget worldwide.
The quality of «Eraser» is controversial. Although the Arnie vehicle also has some fans, the ratings on Internet platforms such as IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes deliver a poor to mediocre picture at best. With 3 out of 5 stars, the FILMSTARTS review for “Eraser” is one of the better reviews.
At first glance, “ Eraser: Reborn ” therefore seems like a snap idea: you take a film from the 90s that became a cinema success mainly because of the popularity of its leading actor and then reboot it 26 years later in which that superstar of all things is missing. We’ll leave the second look to you: In the trailer for «Eraser: Reborn» you see «Shadowhunters» star Dominic Sherwood as Arnie’s successor.
