Academy award winner, 63 year old, Denzel Washington is by far one of Hollywood’s bankable actors. With 2 Academy Awards for best supporting actor for historical war film, Glory and the other a crime thriller film, Training Day, he is sure to do it again with Equalizer 2.
Washington played Robert McCall, a retired CIA black ops operative who lives a life of solitude in Boston, Massachusetts, only to be dragged out of retirement to completely annihilate a mafia type Russian mobsters network that engage in nefarious activities from sex trafficking to drug distribution.
Definitely an action packed crime thriller with a good plot and some exciting twists, It was gripping from start to finish, exciting and It was a successful well loved movie grossing $193 million with great reviews.
In this follow up movie, McCall does it again, coming out of quiet life but this time using his skills to help people in need but again gets into his rescue mode when his old friend Susan is kidnapped.
His Co stars include Melissa Leo, Ashton Sanders, Bill Pullman, Pedro Pascal with Antoine Fuqua returns to direct. Lots of action is to be expected with precision moves and judging from the first Equalizer movie, this follow up movie will not disappoint.
Equalizer 2 arrives in UK cinemas on the 17th of August.
