A step up from the original, raising the stakes and making an effort that's not just watchable, it's occasionally even enjoyable.
Jun 24, 2021
An enjoyable action-packed film with terrific pacing; the two-hour runtime flies right on by.
Feb 28, 2021
A solidly entertaining popcorn flick with pretensions of bringing Shakespearean level of pathos to the tale of vengeance.

The Equalizer 2 is another blockbuster to join all the other summer sequels in box office heaven.
Dec 5, 2020
The revelations are entirely predictable and the assemblage of villains serve only as fodder for ruthless slaughtering.

I can't tell you to pay $12 dollars to see this movie, not with all the other goods currently in theaters.

A better film because Denzel's in it.
Jul 25, 2020
The Equalizer 2 lectures its audience about the importance of life itself -- and then pulls a gun on whatever importance might exist.

Fuqua and company trade in the vicious streak that made the first film so gleefully mean for ho-hum tedium.

There are probably one or two too many subplots that don't really amount to much, but any excuse to see this actor try on different hats as the same character is pretty exciting. This is a mild recommendation.

Fuqua's direction is slick but generally uninspired.

This might not be a great piece of awards-bait filmmaking but it is a rather enjoyable movie.

While not reinventing the wheel of modern-day action thrillers, if viewers liked the first film, this new outing may provide similar feelings once the end credits roll.

And through it all, the noise and the quiet, [Denzel] Washington dominates, even surrounded by a group of terrific supporting players.
Aug 22, 2019
Not bad, but why does Denzel make a transition in the first movie to this one from a once hardened military soldier into a disheveled dopey guy that likely doesn't know how to comb his hair? It just started to go in a weird direction.

The Equalizer was a satisfying action yarn, but this sequel offers few similar pleasures.
Jul 12, 2019
A remarkable thriller that I've personally enjoyed more than its predecessor. [Full Review in Spanish]

A film with characters that we care about, a spectacular, violent and intelligently action, and an impeccable Denzel Washington. [Full Review in Spanish]

Washington's first sequel is likely to be remembered for that trivia nugget and almost nothing else. It's the kind of movie so confused that Ta-Nehisi Coates' work is repeatedly name checked but the film also stops for a respectability politics lecture.

One can't help but feel that The Equaliser 2 could have exploited the taxi driver set-up in a more intense manner akin to Collateral.
