Afterwards, McCall becomes the go-to man when the helpless require the kind of vengeance they would never find without his skills..

Cliched and done to death formula! But still fun to watch on a night when you don't want to be bothered with something cerebral. Denzel Washington is good as ever & the Russian Mafia doesn't stand a chance in hell anyway! Am gonna hit the sequel next folks...
