Extras: Behind the Scenes
Recommendation: Erased is a by-the-numbers international thriller that features a mediocre script from up-and-coming screenwriter Arash Amel and a solid performance from Aaron Eckhart. Phikip Stolzl’s direction is efficient and Koja Brandt’s cinematography offers slick and glossy look that helps the film to distance itself from the rattled visuals of the Jason Bourne films or the grimy textures of Taken. There’s nothing particularly wrong with the film as it offers up the expected thrills and red herrings. There’s also nothing particularly memorable about it either as it walks a path that is extremely familiar.
