The Equalizer

3 Stars (out of 4)

The Equalizer re-teams director Antoine Fuqua and star Denzel Washington; their previous collaboration, Training Day, won Washington a Best Actor Oscar. They seem to bring out the best in each other. Based on the TV series that ran from 1985 to 1989 and starring Edward Woodward, The Equalizer now stars Denzel Washington as Robert McCall, a retired secret agent, trying to live a normal life in Boston, working at "Home Mart." When he meets a young prostitute (Chloe Grace Moretz) living under the control of Russian gangsters, he decides to take action. Effortlessly killing five men, he creates trouble for a much larger criminal network, and expert problem solver called "Teddy" (Marton Csokas) is called in to get McCall. McCall meanwhile helps out some of his co-workers with other problems as the gangsters realize that they can use his friends to get to him. Everything builds to a showdown at the store. More...
