First, there are no such mansions in Moscow.
Second, the identification numbers on the security cars outside are clearly of the European standard with the blue field at the left side.

Is it just you, or are we waiting for someone else?
I'm sorry. What?
Your hands. If you really work on power lines, your hands wouldn't look like that. We gotta be waiting for somebody else.

Antoine Fuqua's and Denzel Washington's paths collide once more as they come together to create a stylish and daring action thriller about a man with a mysterious past, whose quiet life suddenly turns into a rip- roaring adventure of guns and thrills. Both Denzel Washington and Chloe Grace Moretz give stellar performances and display perfect chemistry as two friends stuck in a world of crime and violence. Arguably Fuqua's best film since 'Training Day', 'The Equalizer' is a brutal and merciless tale that explores the Russian underworld on the East Coast and the corruption ties within the law enforcement of Boston's police department.
