So if you’re looking for something to watch this weekend let me suggest The Equalizer 2. It’s a nice story about a guy name Robert McCall (played by Denzel Washington). Robert is a nice guy, a friend to his neighbors, helps out the owner of the local book store and drives for Lyft….oh yeah, and he’s a total absolute BAD ASS!!!!
So last time we saw Robert he worked a Home Depot knock off, but i guess after pissing off the Russian Mafia a different cover is needed. Being a Lyft driver has him meeting and interacting with all sorts of random people, some who need his help, some who just need a ride. This movie however isn’t about any of the passengers (although there are some bad ass parts involving them) it’s about his friend Susan. You remember Susan, she was the woman he went to go to when he wanted to wage war on the Russians, well she’s also one of his only friends….and she gets killed….which means whoever killed her is in for a lot of killing themselves.
I’m not going to spoil anything (i hate people who do that) but i am going to say it’s an action packed ride the entire time. The story was so much better than the original and you actually learn what makes Robert who he is. The first movie I felt left a lot of character questions; why is he such a bad ass? why does he feel the need to do what he does? why is he single? The good thing is that this movie answers a lot of those questions and gives Robert the depth and backstory the first one never did. Backstory aside, it’s also filled with amazing bad ass killings and all that fun stuff.
It’s going to be hot this weekend…so go cool off in some movie theater ac and check out The Equalizer 2..trust me all the cool kids are doing it.
