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

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 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.

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.

Between the moralizing life lessons that are spouted at full volume intensity, the film doesn't shy away from graphic, bloody violence.
December 18, 2018
The Equalizer 2 begins with a lot of momentum. It dissipates as attention shifts to Washington's former spy colleagues.
November 27, 2018
A bad sequel to a mediocre previous installment. Who could've predicted this?
November 6, 2018
The Equalizer 2 ultimately joins other conveyor belt revenge fantasies haphazardly conceived in 2018...
October 31, 2018
Fun in the moment, but forgettable after, Fuqua and Washington's sequel is a passable revenge thriller.
October 17, 2018
Fuqua's movie, unqualified to create anything other than superficial poignancy, is empty, tiresome and uninteresting...
October 11, 2018
The blandness of "Equalizer 2" even extends to Washington himself. This is the closest he's come to sleepwalking through a role.
October 11, 2018
Sure, praise is granted for some well choreographed slayings, but considering the cost of a movie ticket today, you're better off staying home and waiting for this one on basic cable.
September 21, 2018
Despite its glossy sheen, this is just run-of-the-mill pulp fiction.
September 17, 2018
It is blunt, humourless and brutal, and reminds of the no-nonsense action films of the 1970s and early 1980s.
August 30, 2018
The early action scenes on their own have a classic, macho rhythm. But you can't just write a tough guy, you need to give him a place to go.
August 29, 2018
A disjointed plot, cliched characters, casting that pretty much works as a spoiler, and the clunkiest of visual metaphors - it is a mess, and a dull one at that.
August 24, 2018
Dull, pretentious, and mostly disposable.
August 23, 2018
The best moments of Equalizer 2 are wasted in a film that confuses personality with pretension, in a story too frivolous to deserve the talent that has set it. [Full Review in Spanish]
