There hasn’t been much information released about The Equalizer, but what is available does not sound promising. Not only is it (yet another) rehash of an 80s television show, but it has one of the most boring, generic descriptions we have heard.
A retired police-guy (of course it’s Denzel Washington) has become a vigilante for the less fortunate. One of these less fortunates is a hooker and she’s involved with the Russian mafia and when Washington tries to help her he gets into trouble with a bunch of big angry dudes.
All is not lost though, because the film reunites Washington with his Training Day director, Antoine Fuqa. If Fuqa can combine some of the hard hitting grit of Training Day with a scene stealing Washington, The Equalizer may turn out just fine. But, if not, the film will be forgotten as just another boring '80s retread.
