In The Equalizer, Denzel Washington plays McCall, a former Black Ops commando who has faked his death to live a quiet life in Boston. When he comes out of his self-imposed retirement to rescue a young girl, Teri (Chloe Grace Moretz), he finds himself face-to-face with ultra-violent Russian gangsters. As he serves vengeance against those who brutalize the helpless, McCall`s desire for justice is reawakened. If someone has a problem, the odds are stacked against them, and they have nowhere else to turn, McCall will help. He is The Equalizer.

One man with military skills against the Mafia, in a quest for revenge. When was the last time you saw a movie with that concept? Let me guess, about last week? These days, filmmakers cannot seem to find suitable action heroes from the current generation. So they bring back veterans to appeal to a wider ... ...Read full review
Close on the heels of last week`s release John Wick comes another moody and violent action drama that follows ex-special forces operative Robert McCall (Denzel Washing ton) who comes out of retirement when a young prostitute named Teri (Chloe Grace Moretz) is mistreated by her Russian mobster handlers. Soon thereafter, he makes it his mission to take on her tormentors at a dockyard showdown and equalise the balance in favour of the poor and exploited. Even though the film loses its focus and wanders off the track in the middle, it is held together by Washington`s charisma and screen presence. ...Read full review
There are some strong similarities between last weeks Keenu Reaves John Wick and Denzel Washingtons character in The Equalizer. Like Keenu Reaves, Washington plays a man with a mysterious and deliberately cryptic past that involves a dead wife and an incident that revives his inner, baser instinct.But unlike John Wick, this is not a tale of revenge. Instead, its premise is strongly reminiscent of the February 2014 released Liam Neesons Taken. It is the tale of a man with a very particular set of skills who decides to balance injustice and exploitation by unflinchingly engaging in acts of brutal violence.Washington plays Robert McCall, whose quiet life as a manager in a big hardware store is interrupted when Slavi (David Meunier), a goon who works for the Russian Mafia Pushkin, beat up a teenage prostitute Alina (Chloe Grace Moretz) whom McCall had befriended as a fellow late-night diner at a 24-hour restaurant. ...Read full review
How Antoine Fuqua manages to make one mediocre and uninspiring action movie after another is a mystery in itself, but the fact that his films make a ton of money is something out of `The X Files`. Fuqua`s Oscar-winning `Training Day` was a giant bag of mediocrity only buoyed by Denzel Washington`s acting, and he`s followed that up with one crummy actioner after another, including `King Arthur`, `Tears of the Sun`, `Shooter` and last year`s horrible `Olympus Has Fallen`. Now he`s back with yet another clumsy and clunky action movie, this time reteaming with Washington, and the result is as expected. This is a movie meant for a particular target audience people who can adore anything that Washington does. Give the man a gun and his fans will scream in delight. Make him a vengeful do gooder and you`ll hear applause. Turn him into an ex-military avenger and you have a giant hit on your hands. Washington has played the role of an avenger twice already most famously in the much superior `Man on Fire`. He played the dirty gun-slinging beast last year in `Two Guns`. In `The Equalizer`, we get a combo of the two. ...Read full review
