  • chanandre's rating of the film The Equalizer 2

    "Pain that hurts or pain that alters - tonite you get to choose". Denzel at his most Melvillesque. Same mud= same blood.|| YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT DEATH IS! YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT DEATH IS! YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT DEATH IS! - would it not be funny if Denzel actually got an Oscar nod for this? IMO: this puts to shame Wick, Bond, Reacher, Hunt, Cage. Only Mathilda & Alejandro Gillick (+all Mann's heroes) are this driven.

  • Ethan's rating of the film The Equalizer 2

    This is a solid sequel and Denzel delivers another refined performance and something more than a decent action film. This film also shows us the importance of helping others.

  • Mr.Rager's rating of the film The Equalizer 2

    The Sequelizer was a fine cinema event but not that good as the first one. The problem here is the main plot and the villain, this elements being the weak points in the movie's structure. Also the director doesn't impress this time with something new. The side stories were more satisfying then the main act. Denzel is the main asset of this movie / R.McCall is such a great character, the most kind and ruthless. 7/10

  • Dana Henson's rating of the film The Equalizer 2

    7/23/18 - Digital - Cinemark Century 16 - If you're a fan of the first film it's pretty much more of the same. The side plots get a little hokie but it's still filled with over the top, Charles Bronson-esque street justice. Denzel really elevates what would be a fairly standard action thriller into a very intriguing character piece. He is really incapable of phoning it in.

  • the_mentaculus's rating of the film The Equalizer 2

    The myth of the Taxi Driver is now the passion of the Lyft Sage, a superhuman at peace in both stillness and violence, but without even a pretense of moral justification. I've never seen a more vapid action redemption story, or one with so many lapses in its logic and foundation. This makes it all the worse when it presents itself as sentimental and smart. The last act makes a fine western set piece, though.
