A short review of Equalizer 2 starring Denzel Washington from About Magazine film reviewer, Kitty Curtis.
The Equalizer 2 – released July 20th 2018 and directed by Antoine Fuqua – was action packed from start to finish. In the sequel to its 2014 predecessor – protagonist Robert McCall (played by Denzel Washington) isn’t the only ass-kicker, but is joined by an equally ass-kicking cast of supporting players. The film follows McCall following the death of his longtime friend and colleague, Susan Plummer, (Melissa Leo, who returns from the original film), but she doesn’t doesn’t go down without a fight. But the two young men who take her life have bitten off more than they can chew and come to find that they may next time think twice before killing an older woman as McCall makes it his mission to exact his revenge and avenging her death. In doing so, McCall takes on a team of killers who will stop at nothing to see him dead.
This movie has so far grossed over $70.3 million, but only took $55 million to make.The dramatic performances from the actors are spot-on and the story is tightly wound. If you love action and sitting-on-the-edge-of-your-seat kind of movies, then this is a must-see. I give it five stars. We’re all About it.
