Who here loves a good Denzel Washington action movie? I know I do. If you’re a fan too, then good news! Washington is doing a sequel to his film, The Equalizer. EQ2 or The Equalizer II is expected to hit theaters this July 20th.The first film focused on the man named Robert McCall who was living a simple life working at a hardware store, helping his friend become a security guard, and dealing with being a widower. This is until he meets a young girl caught up in a Russian Mafia prostitute ring and decides he can’t ignore what is happening to her.
Then the audience discovers that his normal life wasn’t always so normal: he is a retired infiltrator or agent of some kind. In the new movie, McCall is still doing his secret job of protecting the oppressed and will do anything to stop the wrong people from doing injustice. But what will he do when one of these criminals is someone he loves? Will he be able to stop them and help them or will he have to do his job?
There’s no doubt this movie will be an action-packed film with great fight sequences. The first was just an overall good plot with the friendly neighbor looking guy being the secret hero with a high skill set who can’t or won’t retire because he or she refuses to turn they’re back on the public. Not mention Washington always delivers a star-studded performance. I like The Equalizer a lot because it doesn’t fit the cookie cutter mold of an action film with car chases, casino scenes, and the overused stairwell fight scene. That’s all for this blog post ‘til next time.
