A brand new featurette has just made its way online for The Equalizer, and Denzel Washington is back as a hard man who is leveling the playing field through brutal action.
Washington stars as Robert McCall, a solitary, ex-special forces operative who despises injustice, and who now devotes himself to helping victims of crime. Working at a small home improvement store by day, he befriends a girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) in his off-time at a local diner who is nearly killed by gangsters. After an initial battle, he learns they are members of the Russian mob, leading him to wage a one man war against them and their partners in crime.
The Equalizer re-teams Washington with his ‘Training Day’ collaborator Antoine Fuqua, and the two are back with something special. While The Equalizer could easily fall into your standard revenge crime film, Fuqua and Washington have created a character with depth and honor. McCall look’s to be a modern day samurai, who while appearing to be an everyday, normal guy, is possessed of a lethal skill set that he uses on anyone who would harm the innocent. But even then he gives them the chance to do the right thing. However if they don’t, well, they have to deal with the Equalizer.
The Equalizer looks to be a top notch action film with great characters, and vicious action scenes. When the chips are down, and you feel like you can’t get out alive, then you definitely want The Equalizer at your side.
