Equalizer 2 Reviews

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.

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.

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

Yes, the plot is very much B-movie fare, but the star brings his A-game.

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.

While the movie might not be great, it's extremely watchable thanks to the inescapable charismatic magnetism of its star.

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.
December 22, 2018
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.
December 14, 2018
[Denzel] Washington doesn't bring anything novel to his acting tool belt, yet it has enough focus to become a successful B-movie, even if it is weirdly preachy.
December 12, 2018
Equalizer 2 is cut from the same cloth as one and packs in quite a few punches. It's a delight for action seekers and diehard Washington fans - there's plenty of both to 'equalize' the obvious flaws.
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...
November 4, 2018
A vengeful Denzel is a sight to behold and I root for this franchise's existence but it seems like it's too much to ask for the movies themselves to live up to the standard of their star.

Fun in the moment, but forgettable after, Fuqua and Washington's sequel is a passable revenge thriller.
