The Equalizer (K16)
Time for some lunk-headed action fun, then, after the tepid, reserved violence of The Expendables 3 earlier this summer. Here Denzel Washington stars in a reboot of the ‘80s TV show centered on an ex-government agent who lends a helping hand to those in need. Teaming up with Training Day director Antoine Fuqua, Washington continues to keep one foot equality in both serious thespian and action cheese territories. Regardless of the end result he is always a magnetic screen presence. While Fuqua’s career has had its ups and downs, expectations are relatively high for this latest outing.
