The Equalizer 2 [Movie Review]

I remembered getting super excited when I watched The Equalizer in 2014. The kick-a*s fighting scenes ala The Matrix was superb. And I love it when he was timing his attack and knew exactly where, when and who to attack.
So, when The Equalizer 2 comes out, I am still as excited as I was back then.

SYNOPSIS
The movie starts with Robert McCall travelling on a train to Istanbul. He was trying to retrieve the kidnapped daughter of the local bookstore owner and he succeeded. When he's back in his hometown, he drives around as a Lyft driver, encountering different types of people from different walks of life.
Man, your undie is showing and it is dirty too!
When a young guy requested for him to drop off an obviously sick and heavily assaulted girl, Robert's inner helpful-self immediately kicked in. After dropping off the girl at the nearby hospital, he went back to the apartment and beat off the group of young men for drugging and raping the girl. And then he asked for a 'Five-Star' rate on his Lyft service. Hehehe. 

Robert also helps Sam, an elderly who is looking for a painting of his sister. He also helps Miles, a young resident with an artistic but troubled background to repaint the wall of the vandalised courtyard of his apartment area.
You should shower more. I could smell your smelly dandruff from here.
His friend and former teammate, Susan, are called to investigate a murder scene in Brussels. And when she returns to her hotel, she was attacked by two young men and killed on site. 

Robert immediately investigates the case once he heard the news. His action brings danger to the people around him especially his neighbours, as he does not have anyone else around him who is close and related to him.
Tag! You're it!
This is one crazy and heavy crush to have the pictures of your crush glued all over the walls.
Will he be able to solve the case without jeopardizing the people around him?

MY REVIEW
Plot: 4.5/ 5.0. With so many people to safe around him, it was quite a feat to see him running around killing people who killed and harmed his friends.

Cast: 4.7/ 5.0. I love the cast. Denzel can do no wrong. And the bad guys are the right fit too! 

Will I watch it again: I will, online and not at the cinema. The sequel is not as great as I expected it to be. But that's just me.

  1. Not as exciting as the original. Third act is lazy. A bunch of trained killers suddenly became amateurs.
