The Equalizer 2 – Sky Cinema Premiere

Denzel Washington's freelance righter of wrongs returns to mete out violent retribution on another bunch of evildoers in this superior sequel to the 2014 action thriller

Denzel Washington’s freelance righter of wrongs returns to mete out violent retribution on another bunch of evildoers in this superior sequel to the 2014 action thriller.

Seemingly a book-loving, widowed loner, Washington’s Robert McCall is actually a former black ops agent with a lethal set of skills. And it isn’t long before he is brushing off his commando savvy to give assorted bad guys a good pummelling, while everything builds to a ferocious showdown in a deserted Massachusetts beachside town in the midst of a hurricane.

Washington’s super-cool charisma  makes the film compelling as we learn more about his past and what makes him tick. Yes, the plot is very much B-movie fare, but the star brings his A-game to the show, as does Antoine Fuqua with his classy, stylish direction.
