This trailer for THE EQUALIZER will make an exception for you

1 min read


I’ll confess here, and admit that I never saw the actual show that The Equalizer is based on. Damn not being born in time for a vague TV series that would have been banned in SA. Right now though, redemption comes in cinematic form, as Antoine Fuqua reunites with his Training Day buddy Denzel Washington for a new take on that series. Gentlemen, set your stopwatches, and prepare for action.

In The Equalizer, Denzel Washington plays McCall, a former black ops commando who has faked his death to live a quiet life in Boston.  When he comes out of his self-imposed retirement to rescue a young girl, Teri (Chloë Grace Moretz), he finds himself face to face with ultra-violent Russian gangsters. As he serves vengeance against those who brutalize the helpless, McCall’s desire for justice is reawakened. If someone has a problem, the odds are stacked against them, and they have nowhere else to turn, McCall will help.  He is The Equalizer.

Well that looked rather solid. Fuqua has a fine eye for balancing story and action, and combining that with the charisma of Denzel Washington is an easy sale for me. The Equalizer also stars Melissa Leo, Martin Csokas, and Bill Pullman. It be out on September 26.

    They should so partner the equaliser with a crazy pilot, some muscle and a con man type and make some sort of team.
