Critics Consensus

Queen Latifah returns to the small screen in full command of her craft - if only The Equalizer's overly- engineered early episodes were on her level.

Audience Reviews for The Equalizer: Season 1

  • 6d ago
    Very cliched with plots every week intimating women are superior to men and black people are always put upon by baddies who are white. Avoid
  • Mar 01, 2022
    I LOVE, LOVE THIS SHOW AND THE STORY LINES, HOWEVER LAST WEEK WITH JADA P SMITH WAS TOO CHOPPY, TOO FAST AND TOO MUCH OF HER AND NOT ENOUGH OF OUR REGULAR CHARACTERS.....PLEASE, PLEASE DO NOT HAVE HER ON AS A "REGULAR" SHE RUINS THE SOFT DRAMATIC FLOW AND CLIMAX OF EACH EPISODE. HOWEVER I DO THINK YOU DO NEED A NEW CIA OPERATIVE (LOVED NOTH) BUT IF WE CANNOT HAVE HIM BACK, THE SHOW DOES NEED A STRONG, BUT QUIET TYPE JUST LIKE THE LAST.

    I only watched the trailer of Queen Latifiah's Equalizer Just the trailer alone it felt unbelievable. I'm usual a person who gives tv shows and movies a chance before writing a review on it. Queen Latifah acting style is more comedic than serious. I wouldn't of chosen Queen Latifah for the role perhaps someone like Halle Berry who we all know that she can fight. As she was awesome in John Wick parabellum and in the Netflix film Bruised. I as far as I know Queen Latifah has no fighting skills. Which makes her fighting scene look awful. Oh Boy can't wait for Denzel Washington to return to Equalizer3 as Robert Mccall.

    Alien was more plausable
  • Jan 23, 2022
    Seriously ? What utter bunkum ! It's bad enough that Denzel over worked the film series, to then jump the shark to this nonsense. Give me a break already.
  • Jan 21, 2022
    Queen Latifah is one of the best actresses today. Her performance in this show is incredible and I am so impressed by her versatility. Love this show. Keeps me on edge of my seat!
  • Jan 07, 2022
    This one had me hooked from the first episode. I like the storyline and the fact we have a black woman that is the protagonist and hero. I have read a couple of reviews talking about heavy set 50 year old woman taking on ninjas is not realistic. I say "you go, Queen Latifa! She is probably in better shape than any of the reviewers putting her down. I love the casting with Adam Goldberg and Liza Lapira (much better role than she had on NCIS) and Lorraine Toussaint ! what can I say?! I hope it stays on TV for many more seasons to come.
  • Dec 27, 2021
    Not worth watching. Latifa is completely unbelievable in the role.
  • Nov 24, 2021
    I LOVE this show. It's interesting, suspenseful, and not one of those unbelievable reality shows.
  • Nov 01, 2021
    Love this show! Action, heartwarming, and love having Latifah at the helm!
