It was pretty good. The first one was great. Wound like to see a third one.

Denzel Washington reprises his role as Robert McCall (the "Equalizer"). His is quiet and unassuming. He is also superbly lethal. He just wants to lead his quiet life, but gets dragged into situations where he helps people who are being oppressed by bad guys. There is plenty of action and no shortage of blood as he makes the world right. You don't want to get on the wrong side of the mysterious McCall. It won't end well for you.
The Equalizer was an unexpectedly good action movie. The idea that someone was able to slow down his own time to defeat evil for the good of man was novel when the 80’s TV incarnation was around. Even better in modern times. Denzel turned in a fine performance that first film too! This time out, McCall is still fighting for the hurt, lost, and the troubled. This time he is a Lyft driver who helps those in need at almost every turn, big or small. We see him helping the elderly, helping troubled teenagers, helping strangers left worse for wear in his Lyft vehicle. Then the unthinkable happens... a dear friend is murdered. McCall then goes beast mode on those who contributed to the death. Action scenes are intercut with some decent, if not a little slowly paced drama. Denzel again fits the role like a glove and does some amazing dramatic work. He is easily still one of the finest working actors we have around today. Overall, the movie is a noble follow up to the first, even if the action isn’t nearly as kinetic. Picture and Sound quality for this release are overall near reference quality— you’re treated to a beautifully rendered 2K digital intermediate and some nice color grading and brightness highlights. This picture is sharp! Sound wise, you’re system will receive some subwoofer punishment and if you’ve got an Atmos setup, those height channels will get a little bit of work going through them as well! If you’re a fan of the series, you’ll likely enjoy it, even if you don’t love it as much as the first... it’s a recommend for me!
If you liked "The Equalizer" it's very likely that you will like this one too. Great movie on it's own merits, not just hanging on the coat-tails of the first one, but has a good intelligent story of it's own. The image quality of the UHD 4K transfer is excellent, superior to the standard Blu-ray transfer.
I've seen the first Equalizer (2014) and I have always liked everything I have seen Denzel Washington in, from The Pelican Brief to Virtuosity, to Courage Under Fire, to The Siege to John Q, Man on Fire and Deja Vu and each of his performances I've seen have been PHENOMENAL and as Robert McCall, the character from the series, it is no different
Denzel Washington does in The Equalizer 2 what he's never done before: a sequel. Ex-CIA agent Robert McCall returns for another spin on the classic TV series. In this film, McCall now lives in a different part of Boston, making a living as a Lyft driver while taking on side jobs (he foils a child kidnapping in the beginning), while mentoring a young street artist with gang issues. But when an old friend and colleague of his is murdered by thugs, while on an assignment in Belgium, McCall finds himself facing the surviving members of his old CIA attack team. They're busy cleaning up loose ends, and McCall is next on their list. He deals with them in a complex final battle, in a deserted coastal town during a major storm, from which only one side will emerge victorious. As McCall, Washington brings the action and the drama just as he did the first time around, and the Boston locales are again in evidence for authenticity (there are some scenes of an apartment building for retirees in nearby Lynn--I myself drive by the place frequently, so it's good to see it here). In all, a welcome companion to the original and a worthy addition to anyone's library.
