      The Equalizer 2 Reviews

      Prev Next

      Washington is such a joy to watch. The seasoned star hasn’t lost a bit of his allure, and his ability to carry a film is unmatched.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5 | Aug 20, 2022

      This twisty sequel takes the temperature and weight of the cold lead hammer that is Denzel and heats it with anger and stakes to match the hot lead being shot around him.

      Full Review | Original Score: 4/5 | Aug 14, 2022

      The Equalizer 2 leaves the viewer with a boredom hangover - a cloudy funk that lingers well after the credits roll.

      Full Review | Original Score: 1/4 | Mar 11, 2022

      A step up from the original, raising the stakes and making an effort that's not just watchable, it's occasionally even enjoyable.

      Full Review | Original Score: B- | Aug 21, 2021

      An enjoyable action-packed film with terrific pacing; the two-hour runtime flies right on by.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3.5 / 5 | Jun 24, 2021

      A solidly entertaining popcorn flick with pretensions of bringing Shakespearean level of pathos to the tale of vengeance.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/5 | Feb 28, 2021

      The Equalizer 2 is another blockbuster to join all the other summer sequels in box office heaven.

      Full Review | Jan 29, 2021

      The revelations are entirely predictable and the assemblage of villains serve only as fodder for ruthless slaughtering.

      Full Review | Original Score: 4/10 | Dec 5, 2020

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

      Full Review | Nov 10, 2020

      A better film because Denzel's in it.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4.0 | Sep 7, 2020

      The Equalizer 2 lectures its audience about the importance of life itself -- and then pulls a gun on whatever importance might exist.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2/5 | Jul 25, 2020

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

      Full Review | Original Score: C- | Jun 30, 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.

      Full Review | Jun 18, 2020

      Fuqua's direction is slick but generally uninspired.

      Full Review | Mar 4, 2020

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

      Full Review | Original Score: 6/10 | Jan 10, 2020

      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.

      Full Review | Original Score: 7.5/10 | Oct 29, 2019

      And through it all, the noise and the quiet, [Denzel] Washington dominates, even surrounded by a group of terrific supporting players.

      Full Review | Oct 17, 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.

      Full Review | Original Score: 7/10 | Aug 22, 2019

      The Equalizer was a satisfying action yarn, but this sequel offers few similar pleasures.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2/4 | Jul 18, 2019

      A remarkable thriller that I've personally enjoyed more than its predecessor. [Full Review in Spanish]
