Robert McCall serves an unflinching justice for the exploited and oppressed, but how far will he go when that is someone he loves?
Similar to the first film, this sequel also utilizes a gratuitously-bearded henchman who is ex-military and/or has CIA assassination training which was played by Garrett Golden. In the Equalizer (2014), the character was played by Tait Fletcher.
I'm your father. You mama forgot to tell you about me.
After taking Amy to the hospital to get her stomach pumped, Robert pays a visit to the men that put her there. After he asks for their cell phones and any other video recording equipment, we see one of the men go to the door and lock it. When Robert leaves about a minute after, he doesn't have to unlock the door; he just pulls down the handle to open it. Rotary locks such as this work independently from the door handle.
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:
