I got exactly what I wanted from this sequel – Denzel Washington brings another great performance, and thankfully the rest of the production improves upon the original.
I thoroughly enjoyed this. It’s still nothing that gave me any sort of wow factor, admittedly, but it has that extra little something more that I felt the 2014 film was missing. The supporting cast/characters are more memorable for one, with Pedro Pascal and Ashton Sanders being very welcomed additions.
Pacing-wise it’s also improved, as is the whole vibe of the flick in truth. The twist is a good’un, while the use of weather is excellent; using stormy conditions can easily be overdone, as seen in 2020’s ‘Force of Nature‘ for example, but it really adds to the atmosphere here nicely.
We’re just short of a year from ‘The Equalizer 3’? Sign me up!
The ending showdown was very cool, something I’ve never seen before on screen, _Equaliser 2_ certainly has things like this that I enjoy, it’s not a bad movie, but it is a little bit of a disappointment after the first one. Though I certainly liked _The Equalizer_ more, I am a fan of both movies (so I guess the whole franchise at this point) and if Denzel is up for making more of these Defender-of-the-Downtrodden, ass-kickin’ super soldier Action movies with human-interest stories peppered in via the supporting characters, then I’ll sure as Hell keep watching ’em.
_Final rating:★★★ – I liked it. Would personally recommend you give it a go._
Solid sequel to the original.
I was well entertained on Sunday when I watched the film. Denzel Washington is a favorite actor of mine. I have seen such good films of his in the past: Philadelphia(1993), The Pelican Bried(1993), Crimson Tide(1995), Virtuosity(1995), Fallen(1998), The Bone Collector(1999), The Hurricane(1999),Training Day(2001), John Q(2002) and many more…
I am also a great fan of director Antoine Fuqua and I love his style of direction. The movie continues from the previous one, Robert McCall(Washington) now lives in a diverse apartment complex in urban Massachusetts. He is working as a Lyft driver and assists the less fortunate with the help of his friend, Susan Plummer. One day, Susan and DIA operative Dave York, McCall’s former teammate, are called to investigate an apparent murder-suicide of an agent and his wife in Brussels. When the two separate after reaching their hotel, Susan is murdered in an apparent robbery. When he receives the news, McCall begins to investigate both her death and the case she was investigating.
The action sequences in the film, background sound-effects and cinematography are extremely well executed. Antoine is a director with great vision and you can see that in all his movies. Denzel gives another excellent performance and his acting is very convincing. I give the film a rating of 8/10 because the film is a solid entertainer and held my attention the whole time.
If in the first opus, Robert McCall annihilates the Russian underworld of Boston, on the other hand, in the second opus, he … helps. He just helps, nothing more. By being slightly in bad faith: he helps an elderly brother to find his sister, he helps a young woman abused by 3/4 men, he helps a student with his art studies, he helps a mother to find her young daughter gone on the wrong train, …
In the third opus (if any), he will probably be a nursery school supervisor and we’ll see him reduced to dealing with conflicts between these kids.
The second opus is significantly less exciting than the previous one. Still efficient but disappointing.
