From the manufacturer
Got a problem and nowhere else to turn, Robert McCall will help as The Equalizer. Aiding the exploited and oppressed by serving unflinching justice, he'll need all of his skills to settle the score, when his dangerous past cuts close to home. Denzel Washington returns to a signature role in the first sequel of his career.
Robert McCall (Denzel Washington)
In The Equalizer 2, Robert McCall has moved on… instead of selling you home improvement goods, he’s your Lyft driver, but the avenging angel who has fought for justice for strangers finds himself fighting a more personal battle than ever before. Many of McCall’s secrets are revealed – his training, his skills, his wife, his relationship with Susan Plummer. When someone close to McCall is killed, he seeks vengeance for his friend – and for himself.

In the first movie, Denzel was slim and fit – believable as a killer in the same league as John Wick. Here, he knew the sequel was coming and just doesn’t seem to have made the effort; he grew out his hair, looks older and out of shape, which is good because the amount of action in this film is almost negligible (probably about 10% of ‘The Equalizer’ - and a body count of about 10% that of 'John Wick 2'). So, an action movie without much action.
In the end, we learn a few more things about his past, but the two hours dragged so leadenly that I was actually just relieved when the movie ended. Needless to say, I won’t ever be watching it again.
It’s difficult to believe that both movies were written by the same scriptwriter. This was such a huge waste; no new ideas, no imagination, everything telegraphed, clichéd and predictable. Even the same stream of unnecessary ‘F you’ and the same iconic theme.
Former Marine and Defence Intelligence Agency Spy Robert McCall (Denzel Washington) works as a driver helping out those less fortunate, as always he still has the intent on levelling the score when seeing injustices.
McCall isn't a man one wants to cross or upset..........
When Friend Susan Plummer and her colleague are called to investigate a murder and apparent suicide in Brussels, Susan (Melissa Leo) herself is murdered apparently during a robbery in her hotel-room........well, Robert will make it his business to find out what really happened which will eventually lead to a showdown with the culprits.
With several other earlier incidents to deal with using his efficient skills the film builds up nicely.
Though in my view perhaps not the equal of the earlier film Denzel is always worth watching on-screen, this one does again have several good action sequences to enjoy.
Firstly having read some reviews that are on the negative side, the general feeling is that the pacing is slow during most of the film. I found that this was the better part of the film. In fact the first 4/5ths which had a slow burn had considerably more tension and interest than the finale, where our hero does most of his stuff.
The first and largest part of the film had a slower pace but gave a better sense of build up and storyline - with some action chucked in - and seemed to suit the idea of the 'Equaliser' more than the rather faster ending which to my mind slightly jarred and seemed out of place.
No matter, overall this is a film that is well acted, with Denzel Washington as ever a highly engaging actor who knows his chops combined with a story and enough action to make this a generally superior action thriller.
I don't think it was any better or worse than the first film and I'm happy enough to say overall I thoroughly enjoyed it.
