Film Review: The Equalizer

"Academy Award Winner Denzel Washington returns to the silver screen with a bloody vengeance."
   Directror Antoine Fuqua, who directed Denzel Washington to  best-actor Oscar in “Training Day” back in 2001 reunite in The Equalizer. Denzel Washington plays a fearless killing machine, but one the audience is made to root for. The film is based on the 1985-89 television drama that starred Edward Woodward, “The Equalizer”  which focused on former intelligence agent Robert McCall (Washington), who has managed to slip into anonymity. In the film, he leads a quiet life working at a big-box home store in Boston. But he can’t resist helping the little guy who’s being stepped on by evil and injustice.

    With Washington’s acting chops, McCall is an entirely different character than the TV version,; he’s not British,  lives an incredibly solitary, excessively orderly existence, his apartment is immaculate and his obsessive-compulsive disorder subtly intrudes on the placement of silverware at his restaurant table. He would never show it, but you sense he’s twitching on the inside and basically a human landmine just  waiting to be tripped. A brutal chain of events in the movie backs him into trouble, and these small steps lead him straight to a gruesome outcome. 
     The Equalizer is a true nail biter and one heck of a roller coaster ride. Denzel and Director Fuqua have managed to make a true masterpiece that provides a wonderful tribute to the original TV series while also being inventive all on it;s own. The Equalizer succeeds in distancing it;'s self from the 2014 summer blockbuster experience while also establishing it's self as one of the most anticipated and well scripted films of the fall.
