'The Equalizer' Review: 10 Things You Need to Know About the Denzel Washington Thriller

7 September 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

When you think of the Toronto International Film Festival, you probably thing of highbrow arty fare, impenetrable foreign movies, and the kind of creatively functional, feel-good crowd-pleasers that transcend the festival circuit and go on to make lots of money and win lots of Oscars.

And then there's "The Equalizer," Sony's big-screen, Denzel Washington-led adaptation of the '80s crime show, which opened at this year's Toronto International Film Festival. In the movie, Washington's character, a shadowy figure who now works at a Home Depot-style hardware store, gets targeted by Russian mobsters in Boston after he goes out of his way to try and save a young prostitute (Chloe Grace Moretz).

So, no, it's not exactly "The King's Speech."

But that doesn't mean that it should be struck from the festival's program. How does this new "Equalizer" hold up? And, when it opens at the end of the month, »

If I Stay

4 September 2014 12:05 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

If Wetlands looks at teen life without blinkers, If I Stay prefers Hollywood-style, rose-colored glasses. Guess which one finds box-office gold? Based on Gayle Forman’s 2009 Ya bestseller, If I Stay has the virtue of starring Chloe Grace Moretz (Kick-Ass, Let Me In, Hugo), 17, a skilled actress who can make me believe anything. But not this, Chloe, not this. Moretz plays Mia Hall, an Oregon high schooler with a gift for cello, a rocker boyfriend (Jamie Blackley), indulgent parents (Mireille Enos and Joshua Leonard), and an itch to get into Julliard. »

Denzel Washington is a “knight in shining armor” who works at a home improvement store by day, and kicks the crap out of criminals by night in “The Equalizer.” The latest trailer (above) for the action thriller based on a 1980s CBS series shows Washington's character — a former black ops commando — itching to get back into crime fighting when a cashier is robbed right before his eyes.

Denzel Washington & Chloe Grace Moretz Have a Heart-to-Heart in This 'Equalizer' Preview (Exclusive)

4 September 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Denzel Washington's new rock-'em sock-'em thriller "The Equalizer" is the unlikely opener of this year's Toronto International Film Festival, a lavish, ten-day-long affair that features hundreds of movies, of every flavor, texture, and genre from all over the world.

This is a festival that caters specifically to its audiences, though, with the audience award winners usually going on to capture Oscar gold as well, and in that respect, "The Equalizer" is a perfect choice -- it's going to get the people whooping. In our exclusive clip, though, which takes place in the calm before the storm, you'll get to see Denzel bonding with a young prostitute, played by Chloe Grace Moretz.

The sequence is just a minute long, although this might be the only minute in the entire movie when Denzel Washington isn't brutally kicking someone's butt. Washington plays a lowly worker at a Home Depot-style home improvement store »

All Things Being Unequal Here’s a New Trailer and Poster for The Equalizer

3 September 2014 7:47 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Do you need more things equal in your life? Then you’re in luck with this new trailer and poster for The Equalizer who really should be working hard on the gender divide rather than sticking it to a few low-level pimps but this is Hollywood after all.

Denzel Washington steps back into pissed-off older man territory, shouldering up to Liam Neeson and Harrison Ford, but the man has got form – Training Day (also with Equalizer director Antoine Fuqua) for one.

And though a generation of us mourn Edward Woodward it’s no surprise to see Sony throwing a spotlight on this one for the kids of today. Washington is joined by Chloe Moretz who needs to do something special after If I Stay and Carrie in order to regain the spark she had with Kick-Ass.

Here’s a trailer, which looks suitably nuts.

Chloë Grace Moretz says Kick-Ass 3 is unlikely to happen

27 August 2014 11:10 PM, PDT | TotalFilm | See recent TotalFilm news »

Chloë Grace Moretz has been discussing the possibility of a third entry in the Kick-Ass franchise, and has described another sequel as unlikely after the second film’s disappointing box office take. “Sadly, I think I'm done with the character,” says Moretz of her iconic role as Hit-Girl. “Hit-Girl was a very cool character, but I don't think there will be any more movies.” “You make these movies for the fanboys, but nowadays everyone seems to pirate them rather than watch them in the movie theatre.

Chloe Moretz Says Piracy Means 'Kick-Ass 3' Probably Won't Happen

27 August 2014 10:02 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Gifted young actress Chloe Grace Moretz has been making the publicity rounds for her latest tearjerking drama If I Stay, and that means she's been fielding questions about projects other than the current one she's promoting. And considering most of the general population knows he as the foul-mouthed, ass-kicking Hit-Girl from Kick-Ass and last year's underwhelming sequel, she was inevitably asked about Kick-Ass 3. However, rather than being hopeful about the possibility of another film in the R-rated comic book franchise, she pretty much shot down any hopes fans might have of seeing her suit up again. More below! Speaking with Digital Spy, Moretz lamented that Kick-Ass 3 probably won't happen: "Sadly, I think I'm done with the character. Hit-Girl was a very cool character, but I don't think there will be any more movies. You make these movies for the fanboys, but nowadays everyone seems to pirate them rather than watch them in the movie theater. »

Chloe Moretz Says She's Done Playing Hit-Girl, Blames Piracy For Killing Plans For 'Kick-Ass 3'

27 August 2014 7:40 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Kick-Ass” gave fanboys something to squeal about in 2010. Dark humor? Check. Sweet fight choreography? Check. Perfectly placed Nicolas Cage insanity? Double check. And it was a hit, earning nearly $100 million worldwide, which is not too shabby for an R-rated, niche comic book movie. Three years later, “Kick-Ass 2” delivered none of the above. The sequel opened at number five at the box office, and barely scraped its way to $60 million. And Chloë Grace Moretz blames downloaders for the film's failure, alleging they are the reason a third movie won't happen. "Sadly, I think I'm done with the character," Moretz told Digital Spy. "Hit-Girl was a very cool character, but I don't think there will be any more movies. You make these movies for the fanboys, but nowadays everyone seems to pirate them rather than watch them in the movie theatre. “ 'Kick-Ass 2' was one of the number-one pirated movies of the year, »

If I Stay Review

27 August 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

When the talented young actress Chloë Grace Moretz burst onto the scene, truly coming to prominence with her performance as Hit-Girl in the 2010 superhero flick Kick-Ass, she was a breath of fresh air. She may have looked like a sweet, innocent young girl – but subverted the stereotype with an invigorating, energetic, and somewhat unrefined turn, signalling the start of what has since been a flourishing career, which has seen her collaborate with Martin Scorsese in Hugo, and turn to her dark side in the Carrie remake. However her latest endeavour, R.J. Cutler’s If I Stay, is a dramatic step backwards, as she plays the cliched, ‘misunderstood’ teenager with about as much depth as a paddling pool. A character that is everything we had hoped she would never become.

Chloë Grace Moretz Has "Flare"

26 August 2014 2:08 PM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Take another look @ images of actress Chloë Grace Moretz ("Kick-Ass") in a recent fashion spread for "Flare" (Canada) magazine, supporting her performance as a 'sex worker' in "The Equalizer", starring Oscar winner Denzel Washington:

"It can be walking art," said Moretz about posing in various outfits for fashion magazines.

"Just put me in whatever is fun and interesting, things that I won’t be able to wear when I’m 30."

"People say don’t judge a book by its cover, but if someone wears a crazy outfit, they’re automatically a crazy person. If you wear a tame outfit, you’re automatically a prude." 

"I’m very driven in what I do...It’s the same when I’m acting. There’s no barriers..."

Chloe Moretz Gives Up on Hit Girl and Kick-ass 3 Thanks to Movie Pirating

26 August 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

With the comic book run of Kick-Ass 3 concluded, fans have been wondering if we will ever get another sequel to the film franchise. According to Hit Girl herself, Chloe Moretz, a Kick-Ass 3 movie isn't going to happen. She has given up on the character she so awesomely portrayed, and the franchise that fans have enjoyed. She was asked about the movie in a recent interview with Digital Spy, and this was her reply:

"Sadly, I think I'm done with the character. Hit-Girl was a very cool character, but I don't think there will be any more movies. You make these movies for the fanboys, but nowadays everyone seems to pirate them rather than watch them in the movie theatre. Kick-Ass 2 was one of the number one pirated movies of the year, but that doesn't help us because we need box office figures.

'Kick Ass 3' Is Dead Due to Piracy Claims Chloe Moretz

26 August 2014 7:52 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

During a recent interview, Chloe Moretz expressed her concern for online piracy, and claims that it is the sole reason why we will never see another Kick-Ass sequel. She also reveals that she has no plans on returning if Kick-Ass 3 comes to fruition.

Here is what she had to say.

"Sadly, I think I'm done with the character. Hit-Girl was a very cool character, but I don't think there will be any more movies. You make these movies for the fanboys, but nowadays everyone seems to pirate them rather than watch them in the movie theater. Kick-Ass 2 was one of the number one pirated movies of the year, but that doesn't help us because we need box office figures. We need to prove to the distributors that we can make money from a third and a fourth movie - but because it didn't do so well, we can't make another one. »

Chloë Moretz Says ‘Kick-Ass’ 3 Is Dead, Blames Piracy

25 August 2014 11:49 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

While Matthew Vaughn’s Kick-Ass wasn’t a huge success at the box office, it made enough money – with the help of Blu-ray and DVD sales – to warrant a sequel from director Jeff Wadlow. Alas, the sequel made even less money, and the reviews and fan reception were far less kind than they were for the original, which made a Kick-Ass 3 movie … well, unlikely.

Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. – the creators of the comic book on which the Kick-Ass films are based – recently talked about the likelihood of a second sequel coming to fruition. Now, star Chloë Moretz (the actress who played Hit-Girl) is weighing in, too.
