| Revenge isn't as Sweet
If there's anyone in Hollywood that I would believe is actually a real life bada**, it's probably Denzel Washington. The first Equalizer was a surprisingly brutal and visceral action film that gave Liam Neeson movies a run for its money. While the sequel is full of just as many, if not more, incredible kill sequences by Denzel's character, I think there's a lack of connection I felt this time around. I wasn't nearly as connected to the story, and perhaps that's because the revenge didn't feel as sweet this time around. The ending of the film is a great sequence on its own and there are certain scenes I will certainly revisit, but I'm not sure the film as a whole works quite as well.

Quotes

Robert McCall: Man ain't spelled g-u-n, son. You got a choice. You got talent. You got a chance, and I don't want to hear 'bout your environment, what your momma didnt give you and the white man won't give you, no shot, you got a chance. Use it while you're still ...


Goofs

McCall goes back to his home town in a grey BMW,even the police officer requests they let the grey BMW into the town. When he crosses the bridge he's in a black BMW.


Alternate Versions

The UK release is pre-cut to secure a 15 certificate instead of an 18, reducing scenes of "strong violence and gore". Compared to the New Zealand release (whose rating board also releases full running times in mm:ss), it's 11s shorter at 120:34 instead of 120:45. The cut version was released on DVD & Blu-ray while the uncut version was released on Ultra HD Blu-ray. The following was removed:

  • an already broken arm being further twisted
  • two knives being pulled upwards in a man's body at the end of stabbing
  • a gory shot of insides hanging out after an explosion
  • a man's spine being severed before he's thrown off a building
