* NeckSnap: Arnie snaps quite a few necks in this movie, including one where, instead of twisting the mook's head, he instead traps his head in a with a fridge door and ''twists the torso'' instead.

* LockAndLoadMontage: A brief one when Kruger gears up for a federal raid. Serves as a ChekhovsGun in that it shows the audience the belt knife Kruger uses to escape TheMole later on.

* AssholeVictim: Wat little we see of Cullen's ex-boyfriend Daryl paints him as [[StalkerWithACrush a stalker that can't take "no, our relationship is over" as an answer]]. He gets BlownAcrossTheRoom as the first railgun-induced casualty of the film.

* BulletproofHumanShield: Kruger protects him from a group of armed mooks with one of the armed mooks himself. It's slightly more plausible in this scenario, as the guy is wearing a bulletproof vest.



* HeKnowsTooMuch

to:

* HeKnowsTooMuchHeKnowsTooMuch: They, rather. Cullen is already in danger because of what she knows, and when Kruger gets wise, he ends up in danger too.



** Throughout the whole movie, Kruger suffers injuries that should put him out of contention, but at the end, needs only an arm sling.



* TheNotLoveInterest: Lee and Kruger. Any other movie would have had them hook up at some point, but they never do.

to:

* TheNotLoveInterest: Lee and Kruger. Any other movie would have had them hook up at some point, but they never do. Even that final melodramatic scene--the shootout is over, lights are flashing, the wind is blowing--that seems ripe for a BigDamnKiss turns into nothing but. . .a Big Damn ''Hug''.


Added DiffLines:

* UnlimitedWardrobe: Averted. From the shootout at the zoo till nearly the end of the film, Lee remains in the orange sweater and blue jeans she was wearing when she fled the apartment.

* KissOfLife: Subverted. Deguerin shoots a woman in the chest, then pretends to give her mouth-to-mouth when his colleagues arrive to see what happened -- he's actually blocking her mouth and nose in order to finish her off.
** Also to prevent her from speaking.

''Eraser'' is a 1996 action film, directed by Chuck Russell. The main stars were Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger, VanessaWilliams, and Creator/JamesCaan. It involves American-based companies selling weapons to terrorists.

The main story concerns Cyrez Corporation, a company that creates and manufactures weapons for the United States military. But one of their scientists, Dr. Lee Cullen (Williams), has discovered that their latest electronic-pulse rifle (electrical weaponry) is going to be sold to Sergei Ivanovich Petrofsky (OlekKrupa), a well-known terrorist. The firepower of the weapon on the wrong hands could upset the "balance of power." So, Lee copies the evidence to two discs. One for the FBI, one to go public. Secrecy is not among her strengths though, as her superiors soon find out her plans.

Cue John Kruger (Schwarzenegger), a very effective agent of the Federal Witness Security Protection Program (WITSEC). He has been nicknamed "Eraser" for his ability to erase any trace of the people he is protecting. Now he has to protect Lee. But there are dangers ahead. The conspiracy extents further than Cyrez itself, involving even Daniel Harper (AndyRomano), Undersecretary of Defense. Kruger has been warned by his mentor Robert Deguerin (Caan), that there is a mole within the Program, responsible for the deaths of key witnesses in top-level cases. Lee could be next.
