The first movie from 2014 was a nice solid good guy vs. bad guys movie. It was pretty violent and much like a modern day Dirty Harry movie. A one man army who will make sure that the bad guys get exactly what they deserve.

Now Denzel Washington is back as Robert McCall and he's still busy taking out the trash. This new movie has a number of subplots and the pace is somewhat slower than the first movie, giving us time to get to know the characters better, including some more backstory on McCall himself. Some may dislike the slower pace, but it didn't bother me at all.

There is nice acting all around and the movie has a lot of violent action scenes to keep it entertaining throughout its 2 hours runtime. So many sequels get the pathetic PG-13 treatment and suffer badly. It's much appreciated that they have kept their nasty scissors away from The Equalizer 2.

I like the first movie, I like this sequel, and I'd gladly buy a ticket to see a third movie, should it happen.

Director: Antoine Fuqua
Runtime: 2h01
