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.
The closing credits font is the same used in the television show on which the film is based, The Equalizer (1985). See more »
At the beginning of the movie, while getting ready for work, Bob dresses in slacks and a button-up shirt. He is wearing the same outfit while at work, but on his way home, when he gets off the bus, he is wearing blue jeans. Once he arrives at his apartment, he is wearing the slacks and button-up again.

The UK cinema, DVD and Blu-ray versions are cut for violence to secure a 15 rating, removing or reducing the following:
The closeup of the corkscrew being pushed further into Tevi's mouth, and the final shot of his face right before it's withdrawn.
The first shot of the mercenary bleeding and choking on the barbed wire noose.
Columbia made additional cuts in two more scenes, which appear not to have been requested by the BBFC:
A closeup of Teddy beating Little John's bloodied face twice, and a shot from behind that shows him readying another punch.
The gangster being impaled through the neck was shortened at the start and end.
The six cuts total approximately 15 seconds. The UK Ultra HD Blu-ray is uncut and rated 18. See more »
This movie has a generic plot, damsel in distress, the bad guys, the overpowered superhero that can kill anyone in the most stylish and ridiculous ways... but it's entertaining, like if you don't think about the plot too much and you just want to enjoy the good guy punish the bad guys and bring a small piece of justice to the world.
Cool slow-motion scenes, cool fight scenes (ridículous, but cool), and Denzel is great at this role. Fun ride.
