The last time Director Antoine Fuqua and Denzel Washington hooked-up to make a movie, Denzel picked up one of the gold statues (An Oscar).
That most likely will not happen this time, but that doesn’t mean that “The Equalizer” isn’t good!!
Denzel Washington brings “The Equalizer’s” Robert McCall to the big screen. McCall believes he has put his strange past behind him and is trying to live a quiet normal life in Boston. McCall goes to work every day at a Home Depot type store. McCall frequents a Diner in his neighbor and it’s there that he meets a young girl named Teri (Chloe Grace Moretz). Teri is under the influence of a roguish Russian Mobster.
McCall witnesses the mobster violently slapping Teri. He can’t stand by and allow this to continue. McCall devises a plan and uses skills no one knows he has to get Teri away from the Russian Mobster. The story unfolds from there…
“The Equalizer” is a “Slow Burn Suspense Thriller”. There is no rush with this movie, but it doesn’t drag either. The suspense and intrigue are at an all time high. There is plenty of action and at times it’s rather bloody.
Watching Denzel in action as Robert McCall is awesome!! You can’t wait to see what happens next!
If you like Suspense Thrillers, you will find “The Equalizer” entertaining and satisfying.
This is a former TV Drama brought to the big screen with a big time actor. I expect this to become a franchise. We will undoubtedly see Denzel as Robert McCall again in the future.
This is a 3 Star Movie!
