The Film: A ‘stylishly violent’ american action thriller based on the TV show of the same name, and directed by noted action director Antoine Fuqua, The Equalizer stars the ever-present Denzel Washington (who also appeared in Fuqua’s seminal thriller Training Day) as Robert McCall, a supposedly retired black-ops agent living in Boston.
McCall vows to save his teenage friend Teri (played by Chloe Grace Moretz), whose real name is Alina, after finding out she is a victim of sex trafficking by the local Russian Mafia and seeing her hospitalized by her pimp.
The Director: Antoine Fuqua has made a string of commercially and critically appraised films over the years, including the aforementioned Training Day, as well as Olympus Has Fallen, Tears of the Sun, and King Arthur.
The Critics: Described variously by top critics as ‘A tense thriller that also has more on its mind than the familiar genre constraints it operates under’, and as having ‘more than enough righteous vengeance for an evening of classy thrills’ the Equalizer steelbook will be perfect for all action fans. Indeed, the LA Times called it ‘A tense thriller that also has more on its mind than the familiar genre constraints it operates under.’
