Strengths: A lot of what worked the first time around for The Equalizer is back. The action continues to be well shot, set up in an interesting manner, and completely violent. It may be a bit much for some, but I think it works in this movie. You come to see violence and you get that. Denzel Washington (Robert McCall) is once again solid as our protagonist. It's not one of his better performances, but he does as much as he can with the character. It's enough to make him way more interesting and watchable than he is on paper. I feel like Ashton Sanders (Miles Whittaker), Pedro Pascal (Dave York), Bill Pullman (Brian Plummer), and Melissa Leo (Susan Plummer) all also brought their acting chops.

Weaknesses: I liked how focused the first film was. McCall had vengeance on his mind and that drove him. Here, they were too ambitious and threw in way too many subplots. Everything involving the Miles character is kind of a waste. I liked the actor but his side story felt disjointed. We already knew that McCall was a good person other than being a killer. Him helping someone like Miles didn't add anything, especially since it was so separate from the rest of the story. Characters kind of move in and out and there are so many that you ultimately don't care about many. When it gets to the big action scene near the end, it's all so hollow that none of it felt like it mattered. I didn't care enough about the people or the stakes, so it was as if none of it even happened.

Overall: If you love Denzel and violence, you'll probably enjoy most of this. The script has too many problems because it tries to do too much. That makes it a wildly average movie.

Not as complete as the first one but the sequel offers great action, a decent story line, and overall solid acting. An enjoyable vigilante movie.

Loved it. Action packed from beginning to end, not quite as good as the first film however Denzel as usual is fantastic in the role. Its not a mentally challenging film and at points very
predictable. Well worth a watch

Boring, not as good as the first one! The plot was very slow and very predictable. Sadly I was very disappointed and am looking forward to Equaliser 3, which I hope will have a faster pace, more action etc like the first movie.

Denzel still got it.
My aunt and I were very much entertained by the standard story and strong lead, McCall as portrayed by Denzel.

Very average action thriller. Nothing memorable besides Denzel and the kid who wants to paint buildings.

I love Denzel, but this might be his all-time worst movie! A plotless script mixed with gory violence.

Good film. Honestly, not as good as the first. I hate that 'old hat' analogy but in this case it was true. Still, very good film to watch.

Equalizer 2 (The Sequel of Equalizer).
There are some names I LOVE in the movie industry, who have made their own names as Brand in the industry. One of them is, Denzel Washington, one of the best of the best actors in the industry, Working in the Industry for about 40 years, for the first time starred in his own sequel"Equalizer",
Among the best lines from the movie
"This ain't a perfect world.
People do bad things.
If you're lucky,
you get a chance to...
set it right. But...
Most of the time,
it goes unpunished.
This ain't one of them times.
The mistake you made
was you killed my friend.
So, I'm gonna kill
each and every one of you.
And the only disappointment
in it for me is that
I only get to do it once."
The opening of the Istambul sequence is so good, and that is the iconic style, super beautiful, with beautiful Cinematography by OLIVER WOOD, Who was the Cinematographer of FACEOFF, directed by my ever favorite JOHN WOO. Long story short, This is a movie of perfect gem's artwork.
This is the movie i want to watch with my notebook ready to bookmark points and download the script, read it multiple times, watch over and over again. if you love Action Thriller and Crime, you can not miss this Masterpiece by Antoine Fuqua, The Award Winning director of King Arthur, Equalizer, and many more under his working history.

Denzel Washington of course brings his A game to this sequel. Unfortunately his acting is not enough to save this messy film.
