Robert McCall,'s a former special service commando who faked his own death in hopes of living out a quiet life. Instead, he comes out of his self-imposed retirement to save a young girl, and finds his desire for justice reawakened after coming face-to-face with members of a brutal Russian gang. McCall becomes the go-to man when the helpless require the kind of vengeance they would never find without his skills.
When McCall is on the bus, the coordinates shown for him are N42.3295° W71.8640°. See more »
To force information from him, McCall cuffs Frank's left hand to the steering wheel of his car, which has a hose leading from the exhaust pipe and into the vehicle. Never mind that a modern engine would produce far too little carbon monoxide to cause Frank much breathing difficulty in the few minutes he's exposed, but even with his left hand shackled to the wheel, with his right hand he could lower the windows, turn off the ignition, or put the car in gear and back out through the garage door.

Denzel Washington made this film better than it was
So I just finished watching Equalizer (EQ1) again, so I can watch Equalizer 2 (EQ2) for the comparison.
It's too bad both films had the same director and writers, as they have a bad habit of dragging out the writing and the scenes. Both films at just over 2 hours is just way too long, especially in the simplistic singular plot or EQ1. However, that plot still worked, and mainly because of the entire casts especially Denzel Washington's performance(s). EQ2 certainly had better pacing and a more suspenseful plot - albeit predictable, however it had many plot issues and holes as well as some scenes that needed to be edited down. The new supporting cast was not as strong either.
Which did I enjoy better? Probably EQ1 by a small margin, but they both got an 8/10 from me, as they each had their merits and issues. Nevertheless still enjoyable. I hope if they come out with a EQ3, they speed up the pacing within the writing and directing.
