THE BIG FINISH
Denzel Washington delivers a strong performance (shocker), really elevating this franchise from being mediocre to must see. The tone switches up numerous times from gory kill fest to crime drama to afterschool scared straight special. The brilliance of Washington does a good job however of covering up any of these movies flaws. Nothing moves the needle on whether this sequel is better or worse than its predecessor. This time MCcall’s motivation and enemy is a lot more personal. The violent action along with powerful dialogue is still prominent. There is also a very similar plot line revealed. In this case it is Mccall helping another troubled youth and being a kick ass black guardian angel for them. Kicking ass and taking names The Equalizer 2 provides another successful formula.
