Great plot! Lots of action, and a stellar performance by Denzel despite his age.
Danzel Washington as cool as always....love it 😍😍
I liked Denzel Washingtkn, his stellar performance.
Since i am a karate master, i found that Washington gives a great job in the action part. that is why they use slow motion.i found the story line to be very weak but his acting is makes up for that.not as good as the first movie but i blame that on the first for it took us by surprise.i feel it is a must see and you be the judge.
Even better than the first movie
Good entertainment...Hollywood yes but fun
Well, I wouldn't recommend it and then I would not say don't go. Kinda what you would expect....one man action, gets everyone in fisticuffs, martial arts or shooting. Typical plot along with him helping a young teen in borderline dilemma...lots of action, killing, some twists; if you like Denzel you should go.
Slower than the first Equalizer in the beginning but the plot is excellent and it picks up going into the middle after the plot becomes a little more clearer. Denzel always delivers!
I loved D.Wash in EQ1 but this movie fails to live up to that caliber movie. The storyline is very long and convoluted. The movie simply tries to do too much, in an attempt to explain the backstory of how he became an Equalizer. Also, D.Wash looks old in this movie. I'm actually surprised he went the sequel route. Personally, i dont think it was a good move for him because this movie fails to deliver. And the final shoot-out scene....come on, just STUPID.
Whatever. Plot is weak and actors are past their prime acting game.
nothing else to say wow and wow until the end like always denzel movies i he is one of my favorite acteur
I would have given it 4 and a half stars but I didn't have the option. The movie kept my attention and it certainly had a plot to follow. Packed full of action, it made sense and kept me rooting for the good guy, Denzel. I anticipated being disappointed throughout the movie, but it never happened and I never fell asleep!
Poor. Skip it.
Very entertaining and action packed!
Denzel doesn't disappoint even though this movie is not as good as the first EQ. I would give this movie 3.5 stars if the website would allow me to. It's a good movie but not great. If you have so extra time for some entertainment go see it or other wise wait for it as a rental.
This was horrible
July 31, 2018 Sucks! The Equalizer has made it's last movie. No plot, piss poor sequel. DW is fading fast! This was supposed to be a 1 star
Mission Impossible was far better of a movie.
Great movie with good combat fighting , love DW in this role
Not surprised this dropped below Mamma Mia in its second week. Denzel is so self indulgent, he's really annoying to watch onscreen. Not to mention, it's just violence for the sake of violence. There's barely a plot.
Better then the first. This movie was very good to watch. I can't wait to watch it again on DVD.
Better than the first Equalizer. Great hand to hand combat. A must see for anyone that likes action.
Fantastic!!! Denzil Washington delivers another great performance. The story plot validates truth over lies and good over evil always wins. Go and see this one you won't be disappointed.
It was a bit more layered and thought provoking then the previous. Believable mentor relationship.
My husband and I really enjoyed this movie. It had a good story and lots of action. We both preffered it to the new Mission Impossible movie.
Great action movie, Denzil is amazing in this movie.
Although this sequel has a slower development and less story compared to the first, it emphasizes more on the main character’s personal life and background. It still is an action-packed movie with good acting, I quite enjoyed it!
I liked it. Good acting by DW.
Absolutely horrible disgusting cliche'd movie. Have to have the stupid teenager and the supposed holocaust survivor bullshit. Action was sub-par. Just a horrible movie. Don't waste even a penny
Just as action pack as the first one. I love the story line and the message.
It was ok
Excellent movie. Action, characters, acting...all engaging. Lost a point for lack of complete storyline...not sure what the point of the 'bad guys' was, other than to have someone for Denzel to fight. All in all, would see this again.
Great movie well done! I do wish the end of the movie would have been better. Looking forward to Equalizer 3!
The Equalizer begins with a wallop but it sadly ends in a terrible and contrived way. The first film had all the right ingredients. Good guy, bad guy(s) and plausible story. The 2nd has a kinder/gentler Denzel who still can deliver the goods but his character gets bogged down with subplots which slow the pace of this film. Secondly, the bad guy(s) are lame. You never get a sense of the impeding doom of the first one with Denzell inside a hardware store. That guy was bad! In this sequel there is no impeding doom and the ending is contrived to the point where I did not care who lived and who died. It just got silly. Did the director run out of ideas? The story had some legs and some believability but by the middle I was looking at my watch. The sub plots do drag the film a bit.This film is not better than the first. I have yet to see a decent summer film.
I went thinking it would not have bad language according to a review I read that said it did not have cursing. But was so disappointed that the f word was used thru out and finally left before movie was over because of that.
The composure of Denzel!!
Action packed, hi energy. But, there is swearing, just reading other reviews, say what.....................lots of language!
Denzil Washington does not disappoint, action packed, nail biter, loved it!
If you liked the first movie you will really enjoy this film. Denzel is back to make it right!!! His character listens and will do in his power and goodwill to assist. If that means justice for evil then so be it. Money truly is the root of all evil...luckily there is Denzel who punishes evil.
Like everything about this movie
It was a good night out with my husband. We both enjoyed the movie. It's definitely not for young children. There was no swearing, no sexual scenes, but violent. Plenty of hand to hand fighting. Great stuff.
Plenty of action in this film plus a lot of goodness in the message. Another good film by Denzel, he doesn't disappoint.
Superior action movie with powerful, beautifully photographed scenes. A heartfelt drama with touches of sensitivity for those who cannot defend themselves. For me, this drama had an inner strength that resonates like a soul on fire for justice, mercy, and sanctification. Perhaps, like the equally powerful Tears of the Sun and Equalizer 1, a killer's redemption, his code of honor, must be revealed through violence. Therefore, our hero requires lightning fast acts so violent as to stun the audience, in order to expose what he truly stands for. For the hardcore warrior, the black ops killer, death and justice run wild until the innocent are safe. Truly a petal-to-metal bodyguard movie with quiet moments of reflection. Highly recommend it to those who can handle brutality in sudden waves of drama.
I thought this was even better than the first one
