Denzel Washington’s The Equalizer 2 was released after a period of about four years.
Originally released four years ago, The Equalizer quickly resonated around the world.
The reunion between Denzel Washington and Antoine Fuqua after the Oscar-winning Academy Day (2001) created a violent and meaningful action film. And The Equalizer 2 is the first black film to star in a sequel.
The Equalizer 2 takes place immediately after the events of the first part. Former CIA secretary Robert McCall (Denzel Washington) is now the driver. And he is constantly helping the unhappy surrounding people with the help of Susan Plummer (Melissa Leo).
One day, Susan is killed while investigating the assassination of a high-ranking Brussels spy with Dave York (Pedro Pascal). Get the news, Robert immediately into the game. From here, he discovered a series of scary mysteries related to the old team.
The script has knots, but few actions
In the first episode, Robert McCall’s rival was identified from the start as a gang of gangsters protecting the village. Throughout the film, there are many familiar battles between Nicolai Itchenko (Marton Csokas) and the protagonist.
But to The Equalizer 2, the viral rendition was hidden and only revealed at the last minute of the work. At this time, audiences had the opportunity to witness the possibility of an impressive investigation when Robert re-established the scene of two cases at the same time.
The scenario of The Equalizer 2 is somewhat more complicated than the first.
The smallest details are used by him to discover the truth. That makes the content a bit more dramatic, because Robert McCall’s enemies can appear anytime in many unexpected ways.
Song, The Equalizer 2 still have weaknesses of the previous episode. It is a lot of time to step into the extra situation, causing the circuit to become rampant. Typically, the story of young man Miles Whittaker (Ashton Sanders) has almost no effect on the main content, but is extensively excessive.
Meanwhile, the array seems to be weaker than the first. The violence and gore of The Equalizer 2 has diminished considerably, perhaps in part because Denzel Washington now has a high age, hardly able to participate in long-range melee combat and toughness.
Movies have a lot of action, but they usually end up pretty fast.
Actually, the number of battle scenes in the movie is not small, but they usually end quickly. The villain is well-invested, but it’s not a match for Robert McCall.
Denzel Washington continues to be the bright spot
As one of the rare Hollywood actors who has succeeded in both drama and action, Denzel Washington strives to bring more elements of humanity into his work. With The Equalizer 2, the film continues to dig deeper into Robert McCall’s past and character identity.
In the first episode, the CIA agent is portrayed as a very good man who does everything within the day in a certain time frame, as well as time to complete the job perfectly.
