The Equalizer

By Melinda - AV

January 9, 2015

Being a die-hard Denzel Washington fan, I was anticipating seeing him star in this 2014 film version of The Equalizer, which is a re-vamp of the T.V. series from the late 1980’s.  The movie starts out a little slow showing McCall (Denzel Washington) as a mysterious man living a normal quiet life until he meets Teri, a teenage girl that is being mishandled by Russian gangsters, and he decides that he cannot sit by any longer.  With his set of formidable skills, McCall’s desire for justice is awakened.  I really enjoyed the movie for the action, but beware: there are quite a few violent, bloody, and gory parts in this film.  Although I did like the movie, I can say there were also a few corny, predictable parts that they could have left out of an action-packed, thriller movie.  I would recommend this to anyone who loves action-thriller films, and, even though it was not one of the best movies of Denzel Washington’s career, it still gets my thumbs up.  Overall Rating: B+
