The Equalizer Thriller

In "The Equalizer," Denzel Washington plays McCall, a former black ops commando who has faked his death to live a quiet life in Boston. When he comes out of his self-imposed retirement to rescue a young girl, Teri (Chloë Grace Moretz), he finds himself face to face with ultra-violent Russian gangsters. As he serves vengeance against those who brutalize the helpless, McCall’s desire for justice is reawakened. If someone has a problem, the odds are stacked against them and they have nowhere else to turn, McCall will help. He is The Equalizer.

HitFix Reviews and Ratings

  • C-
    'The Equalizer' is based on the '80s TV show, but only loosely, and the end result is a weird silly hyper-violent action film that wastes Denzel Washington and feels like a Home Depot-bound version of 'Home Alone'
