This is not a pro critics movie, which they've bagged. What it is a drama with some comedy that lifts over the tough reality of parent in trouble, aging parents, and a little of coming to grips with all of it. Terrific performances by Downey and Duvall, Thornton and Farmiga.
Underdelivers in writing and acting and overwhelms with hacker technology. The character development falls way short, the least of which is free boobie. It will do well on DVD rentals, but I wish I had my 100 minutes back.
The Equalizer is more gore, more blood and guts, and more action than I expected. It's Charles Bronson all over again, vigilante-inspired, it very well could be turn into a franchise for Denzel, who nailed it.
A wonderful ensemble of a cast led by Jason Bateman, who comes across as smart and very likeable. It's less Tina Fey than I wanted, but the movie has substance and enough funny and awkward moments to keep it interesting.
