Equalizer 2 Reviews
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.
predictable. Well worth a watch
My aunt and I were very much entertained by the standard story and strong lead, McCall as portrayed by Denzel.
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.
