"Eraser" isn't quite as insane as "Commando" because let's face it, no movie will ever be. But still, it strikes exactly the right tone you need in a Schwarzenegger movie. Arnold goes from one over-the-top action set piece to another, jumping out of planes, strolling through gunfire and even feeding villains to some terrible CGI crocodiles at one point. It's old school action at its finest, with Schwarzenegger chewing the scenery like only he can. Obviously, "Eraser" isn't perfect. For one thing, it's glaringly obvious who the 'leak' is within Arnold's squad, but somehow the makers still treat it like it's a huge reveal that you could have never seen coming. Also, Vanessa Williams gives a very flat performance as the damsel in distress, so you don't care much whether she stays alive or not. However, these flaws don't really hurt the overall experience.
U.S. Marshal deputy John Kruger is one of the toughest Marshals, his methods are to "Erase" The identities of his witnesses he is assigned to protect. Meanwhile, a woman named Lee Cullen who works for a corporation named Cyrez performed an undercover job for the FBI to unveil a top secret weapon which uses an electromagnetic pulse to dispatch targets.
