The Equalizer


If you can handle some gratuitous gore (not too much, but some) the Equalizer will fill your thrills and chills and prove once again how far Denzel Washington has come from St. Elsewhere, where I first “fell in love” with his acting.

Although it would be great to see him tackle more sensitive roles, he fills out this action drama with character depth that all other contenders are missing, raising this film well above the bar. It is nuanced and yet brazen; formulaic and yet riveting. A terrific action pic to blow through 2 hours without thinking about anything else but how tightly you’re gripping your chair.
