Alternate Versions

The UK release is pre-cut to secure a 15 certificate instead of an 18, reducing scenes of "strong violence and gore". Compared to the New Zealand release (whose rating board also releases full running times in mm:ss), it's 11s shorter at 120:34 instead of 120:45. The cut version was released on DVD & Blu-ray while the uncut version was released on Ultra HD Blu-ray. The following was removed:
  • an already broken arm being further twisted
  • two knives being pulled upwards in a man's body at the end of stabbing
  • a gory shot of insides hanging out after an explosion
  • a man's spine being severed before he's thrown off a building

Awesome film
31 October 2018 | by elliotjeorySee all my reviews

If you are a fan of Denzel Washington and the first equaliser you will love this. Met expectations in story, action and fight scenes. Yes the first one was probably better but this is still a worthy sequel and highly enjoyable. It would be great if there was a third to complete the trilogy.
