It's just different than the first one. Not better, different.
Bought this and the first Equalizer when they were on sale. I'd never seen either of them, but heard good things - plus Denzel is usually the same character in ever movie, so if you don't hate him, you'll be OK.
Turns out, he's the exact same character as any movie he has with a train that's out of control (he has a lot of those train movies for some reason)...anyways, he's just like that and John Wick smashed together.
Great film, pleasantly surprised. And I watched the first one, this one was equally as enjoyable yet totally different, which is good for a sequel. Worth the dough.
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!
Very strong follow up to original Equalizer. Story was engaging and had clever twists. Denzel once again provided a top of the line performance while remaining true to his character. Great moments of sadness, anger, determination and action throughout the movie. A little disorienting to have the Mandalorian play such a dark role! I will watch this show many times and will and have recommended to family and friends.
This movie is simply amazing. If you are familiar with the Equalizer series then you know what you are getting here, and it does not disappoint! The only let-down for me was the 4K quality. I was not as blown away as I expected to be. I viewed it on my Samsung Q90T streaming it from an Xbox Series X.
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.
