Denzel Washington in THE EQUALIZER.

Rating: R

Running Time: 131 minutes

The strength of THE EQUALIZER is that for the first 30 minutes of the film it methodically and effectively setups the story and its characters. This ardent approach to development makes the turn of Denzel Washington’s character from mild-manner man to a badass killing machine all the more effective. This is not a great film, but the team of director Antoine Fuqua and Washington who worked together on TRAINING DAY, have created a fun film to watch as Washington systematically and violently misleads and destroys the bad guys.

Grade: B+
