Hands up and bow down to one of the greatest of our time….PERIOD! Robert McCall (Denzel Washington) is back and even better! Possibly the greatest Lyft driver that’s ever graced the earth. McCall has an agenda to accomplish, and that he does. Far better than its predecessor in my opinion, EQUALIZER 2 is well worth the money. Yeah it has a bold script that zig zags all over the place but hey — Denzel owns it per usual. He makes this film great. Director Antoine Fuqua also delivers again. High paced action and pure Denzel dialogue, this movie explores deeper into McCall’s personal life and background.
Also let me say, this was the first time Denzel Washington and Antoine Fuqua ever made a sequel! Now a good portion of the film is just Denzel hanging out with people putting a focus on the little people around him. Yes this is an action film, but it is also a journey through humanity, with focus on the good and the bad. Denzel extends the role of a man both charming and intimidating. A man who strives for the brightest light even if he realizes the world may be extremely darkened!
When the action scenes do present themselves, please believe they do not disappoint. The final fight at the end in my opinion can go down in the books as one of the greatest fight sequences EVER! This movie is a must see especially if you are a fan of the first Equalizer and a fan of Denzel Washington. I give this movie a 4.6 vegan black bean burgers. Man -damn that story line, it’s all about this kick ass Lyft driver! Great action and edge of your seat moments, You will enjoy. So -Get up off the couch grab your significant other and head to the theater. Make it a date night get your popcorn and be prepared for the EQUALIZER 2! Provide your feedback and let me know what you think!
Come back and get more from the movie man and continue to get your grub on!!
