The Equalizer - Honest Movie Review





The Equalizer is directed by Antoine Fuqua and stars by Denzel Washington. This project went between a lot of different directors before it finally landed in the land of Fuqua. Originally, Nicholas Winding Refn was going to direct The Equalizer which is not very surprise because a lot of his trademark violence in this movie.

Chloe Grace Moretz plays a young prostitute in this movie and then Washington is the man with mysterious past. He often meet this girl at the diner watches over her then decided to protect her when some evil guy beat her up. 


The man brings his mysterious past back into the forefront and he is on the mission to find the Russian Gang to take them out. 

When people are getting nails and drills into their heads, Denzel Washington is the only thing that carries this movie along as well as Marton Csokas.

It is a fun movie with a strong villain, and seeing them both act in my favorite part of this movie was great. In fact my favorite scene in this movie is the very intense conversation with both of them at the restaurant. Some people are going to be very turn off by the over the top villain in The Equalizer they are not very handle with much reason. 

Denzel Washington's character in The Equalizer seems really sane and some of the things that he does feel like Saw and Home Alone's traps. As if they are made for the entertainment value. 

Our main issue with this movie is to many psyplot. Chloe Moretz who just shows up for awhile and seems like they just want to get Denzel back into this evil world again then disappear for the entire movie.

That being said, we did have a good time watching The Equalizer because Denzel Washington as we said, he makes the violence fun, he makes the over the top action skills fun to watch. He also sells serious moment perfectly. We found his character is really compelling. The movie has a lot of holes in it but we still enjoyed it. 



The Equalizer movie rating: 3.5 stars
