    The Equalizer 2 was SJW trash. I mean, would Denzel brutalize a mother for kidnapping her child from the father? Because that shit happens in the millions... pretty typical one sides SJW bile. Can we ever make a narrative that's fair? Ugghhhhh...

    There was this one part where Denzel fought some rich brutes in that hotel room; he subdues most of them but he flat-out snaps the neck of one of them. It's like why was he inconsistent with his vigilante justice? He knocks a few dudes unconscious, breaking a few of their bones, yet he kills one of these background thugs. I don't think any of those dudes were armed, just muscles. Then those side-plots were just padding. There was that old man who apparently lost his sister when he was a kid and they get reunited and I didn't remember that was a thing by the end of the movie. Lacked a lot of emotional attachment for me to give a shit about anybody. Only part I liked was Denzel telling those assassins "normally I'd give people a chance to turn themselves around, but you killed Susan and you tried to kill me so I'm just going to kill all of you." Another problem, Pedro has a wife and kids and Denzel's character is supposed to be the honest type, so is he supposed to eventually break the news that he killed Pedro in an act of vigilante justice? The kids clearly loved their dad, so I don't think they'll take the news that their dad is dead even if he was a scumbag. Of all the additional side-plots, one regarding Pedro's family would've made more sense than the painter-gangster kid or the Lyft regular customer. Something that this movie and the last was that they really forgot Denzel's character seemed to have OCD habits like timing things with his digital watch, yet he never does any of those habits again

    The thing is I care more about this sequel just because felt more like the original tv show, like helping many people instead of just one kid against the russian mob. the bad guys were less interesting than the first movie, but make the lead more sympathetic with more people helping them feel better to me than the first one.

    Joe couldn’t be more off base on this review my friend. You’re complaining about the most simplistic things the average movie goer is going to to not even notice. It’s not a blockbuster at all but it’s still a good movie. I love the build up to learning about his background and where he came from and that we didn’t need the mystery man motif.

  • Toaster Lars

    I didn't really like the plot that much simply because the original was about McCall trying to help out a young prostitute get out of a bad situation. The movie was about a bad-ass helping even things out. While Equalizer 2 was just a basic revenge plot. He took revenge for Susan, he took revenge for the woman who got raped, the only time he actually helped someone in need was saving the kidnapped girl in the beginning.
    Don't agree on the end fight though, if they had a shot of the brigde out there collapsing and the team trying to pull out only to find their escape route ruined, it would make sense, i personally loved that whole sequence, specially because he killed them all in different ways. Speargunned one, blew up another, mutilated one, and had an end cqc sequence for the main baddy, all with the storm raging around them, that was epic.

    To the people bitching about Joe talking too much or shutting others down. I have seen all his movie reviews and spoiler discussions from when he started doing them. He was excited in the start yes, and did do some mistakes in my opinion. However he has been getting A LOT BETTER! So it is time to stop this shittalk.

    'SUSAN' SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN 'KILLED' IN THE SECOND MOVIE!!! ('SHE' was so wonderfully 'caring' in the first movie). Susan, in the first movie, helped the audience learn much about the 'character' of McCall. Susan, in the first movie, certainly knows a lot more about McCall than the audience has learned thusfar. 'SHE' could certainly have been horribly brutalized and assaulted in the second move, but ultimately 'kidnapped' to force McCall to rescue 'her'. In the room in which Susan is brutalized, McCall would be able to mentally relive the assault of Susan, and we, the audience, would be able to see and cheer McCall when he mentally makes the decision to rescue Susan at all costs, revealing to us more of his skills at eliminating any 'enemy'. The young boy did not contribute to what we are learning about McCall. The ending fight scenes could have been much more dramatic and entertaining. The ending scene suggests that McCall is only a 'good' fighter and NOT the invincible 'equalizer' that we are learning 'he' is. The ending took too long and should have been wonderfully and creatively - 'short' as in the first movie. I must say again - 'SUSAN' SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN KILLED IN THE SECOND MOVIE! By allowing Susan to live and be rescued at the end of the second movie, plans by Antoine Fuqua could be creatively determined to prepare for a third installment of the 'equalizer' movies in which McCall purposes with Susan and her husband to form their own 'agency' to fight against the world's enemies. In future sequels, allow the audience to become the 'hero' who vanquishes any and all 'enemies'. I will end by saying again that SUSAN SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN KILLED IN THE SECOND MOVIE!!!

    My opinion they did not try too hard on this movie I don’t see how it’s even trying hard now remember he’s playing a character that faked his own death and just lives a normal life working as an ouber driver and will go into action if he needs to take mater in his own hands it’s John wick mixed with Taken 3

    I agree I felt like the first one was better and I felt like something was missing from the movie I didn't think they needed to put that's touring with the guy from The Ghetto I felt like there was no point of that I could have kept him in as a friend and he wanted to help out but we didn't need to see Denzel Washington going into the ghetto just pointless it just made it look stupid I felt like the story should have been more on his friend I felt like I was getting into that but then I was pulled away from that story to other stories that Denzel Washington was trying to solve by saving people so I just really was more interested on his friends case why she got killed by the Russian guy at the beginning was murdered and his wife was murdered I was more interested in that story what was the reason why the friend got killed and the partner she was working with killed her I was just interested in that I felt like the ending was ok but I wasn't interested in the storm I felt like the storm I felt they were trying to hard as the storm is a distraction I would have just prefer to see more I say good weather with Denzel Washington beating their ass another no was it the same director that did the first movie because it felt like a franchise to me where the movie just didn't flow as well as the first one

    I loved the first one, was looking forward to the sequel, and I thought it was fine, but ya the plot kinda felt too much. I want to see Denzel Washington kill people, I don't really care about who he is killing. I liked the mystery with his backstory, and the idea that his friend dies so he kills the guys who did it, bit it felt too long. I was scared when I saw it having over two hour run time.
