The Equalizer 2

The Equalizer 2 Film Review

Wow! What a riveting and thrilling movie. It’s a cross between Jason Bourne and Mission Impossible:Fallout it’s that good.

The movie begins with an epic train journey into Turkey where Robert McCall dressed as a traditional Muslim is encountered by a human trafficking gang who he ingeniously, using a teapot and a pair of glasses, physically dismantles in order for a kidnapped child to be safely and soundly released. This act of bravery puts the audience of edge as they are teased for the rest of the movie as it is very clear that ‘The’ Robert McCall (aka The Equalizer) is back and raring to go.

The stealthiness and fight choreography throughout the movie is likened to that of Pedro Pascals Narcos and Game Of Thrones roles as well as PS4‘s legendary game sequel ‘Middle Earth: Shadow Of Mordor’.

In searching for an old friend whose new professional is poisoned by bounty hunting and  crime, Robert is encountered by a local teen who helps him in his pursuit of justice. The pair are put through their paces rigorously as well as the antagonists are by them. The movie is highly entertaining and is a must-watch – perfect for a pair of good friends, couples and 15+ families. 

Denzel Washington’s performance is masterful and a masterclass in the acting of the espionage genre. Pedro Pascals eccentric antagonist is played just as well with Pascal whose previous work on gangland thriller show Netflix’s (‘Narcos’) boosted his game following his season long stint on HBO’s ‘Game Of Thrones’.

This movie is a solid 8.4/10 as a result of said actors beautifully acted roles in the film.
