YMMV: Eraser
  • Alternate Character Interpretation: Could it be that the two doctors at Cyrez trying to "revive" Johnny Castellone were part of the "program" Haggerty mentions, and were purposely attempting to murder him by electrocution? It sure seems so, when they repeatedly shock him. And the enthusiasm of the one manning the paddles (played by Camryn Manheim) suggests to this troper a certain level of malicious purpose. "Let's try it ONE MORE TIME!", even though she can see he's awake and aware, shaking his head in a negatory gesture and screaming through the bit placed in his mouth.
  • Critical Research Failure: Dr. Cullen, apparently a physicist, explains that a rail gun fires "caseless aluminum shells at nearly the speed of light."
  • Moment Of Awesome: Arnie, plus two railguns. You do the math.
  • Special Effects Failure: If you look carefully at the ending scene where the limo is destroyed by an oncoming train, you can catch the fact that the limo actually explodes before the train even touches it!
    • Though probably convincing in its time, by today's standards, the CGI alligators (done by Industrial Light and Magic, no less!) look extremely cheesy.
