Fuqua and Washington once again rejoin forces following their unforgettable collaboration on Training Day, for this reinterpretation of the classic TV show of the same name. Only this time Washington is playing Mr. Nice Guy.

Although the spirit is very much alive, The Equalizer stands proud as an entirely separate entity.
Playing his calm and lovable self, Washington portrays Robert McCall, a man who lives a simple life free from nonsense or crippling responsibility. He’s far from the cold loner often associated with such films though, as we see
