Fuqua's style seems consistent, although he uses more video and editing resources, the strength of the narrative raises the impact of the action scenes. [Full Review in Spanish]

The Equalizer is good enough popcorn entertainment, made classier by the presence of Washington.

All of the efforts of this top notch team are in service of an earnest film that maybe doesn't know how ridiculous it feels to pair saint-like qualities with a man who'll put a wine corker into your neck slowly as you bleed out in his arms.

In his 30 year film career, Denzel Washington has never made a sequel. In Robert McCall, we finally have a character that demands one.
December 2, 2017
Superhero movies still currently pack quite the mainstream appeal punch, and in many ways, you can make a case that The Equalizer belongs on that list
November 11, 2017
All said and done, Washington and Csokas are thoroughly convincing and if you're an action junkie, you'll surely get your money's worth.

[Denzel] Washington's biggest pleasure seems to come from converting his workplace into a Home Alone-style obstacle course for the baddies to endure.
June 30, 2017
All things being equal, Denzel Washington's new movie, The Equalizer, gets things done.
March 17, 2017
Unfortunately, Fuqua's film is tonally discordant, vacillating between gloriously ridiculous and mind-numbing; sometimes it's just plain dull.

The perfect marriage of generic material and a huge star.

Washington's had much worse pulp outings than this and here he's done a bang-up job.
January 19, 2015
The Equalizer is empty and merely efficient but it's enjoyable as hell with Washington in solid, focused Man On Fire form.
January 13, 2015
It's a total C movie, but to Fuqua's credit, it doesn't try to be anything other than that.
October 31, 2014
The familiar can be welcome when the practitioner is so good at what he does. And there are few actors more commanding than Washington when he's taking out bad guys.

If it was in black and white with more smoking, act one could be a Jim Jarmusch film.
October 16, 2014
...Fuqua's most accomplished effort since 2001's Training Day.

It is in the seemingly undemanding action programmers where Washington truly proves the singular depths and scope of his talents and presence.
October 6, 2014
Washington, as always, holds the attention, finding in McCall a vulnerability that goes beyond the script's lip service.

Note to mobsters: If you hope to eliminate an ex-agent whose very particular set of skills make Neeson seem as lethal as Cera, do not stage your assault in a big-box store where your target has access to barbed wire, blow torches and power drills.

Denzel's performance and the film's high-voltage action premise make it one to watch this fall season.
