A better film because Denzel's in it.
July 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.
June 18, 2020
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.
January 10, 2020
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.
August 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.
July 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.
May 1, 2019
A sequel only in name and not by nature, The Equalizer 2 doesn't differentiate itself from any number of the countless male-driven action projects doing the rounds these days
April 27, 2019
Yes, the plot is very much B-movie fare, but the star brings his A-game.
April 16, 2019
There have been several Denzel Washington films over the years that were worthy of sequels and the seasoned actor surely considered the merits of each one. That's what makes his choice of the utterly disposable The Equalizer 2 such a mystery.
April 9, 2019
If you're a fan of Washington as a general rule, you shouldn't be dissatisfied with his portrayal - instead, you can reserve your disappointment for the film's slow pacing and uninspired action beats.
February 6, 2019
While the movie might not be great, it's extremely watchable thanks to the inescapable charismatic magnetism of its star.
January 29, 2019
If you're a fan of Denzel Washington then I think we can all agree that this movie is just padding his stats at this point.
