Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
The Equalizer is a film Tony Scott would have made if he’d still ben alive. In fact if anything it feels like a prequel to Man On Fire. If this sounds like a great idea, then this is very much for you. A revenge film heavy on revenge, violence and creative ways to kill, this is Washington (and director Antoine Fuqua for that matter) on cruise mode. But he does ‘Cruise’ almost better than anyone and whilst he’s never stretched he’s certainly having fun. And that’s never a bad thing. In short: Bloody, violent if a bit over long.
Best Bit: Home depot finale
