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

If there's anyone in Hollywood that I would believe is actually a real life bada**, it's probably Denzel Washington. The first Equalizer was a surprisingly brutal and visceral action film that gave Liam Neeson movies a run for its money. While the sequel is full of just as many, if not more, incredible kill sequences by Denzel's character, I think there's a lack of connection I felt this time around. I wasn't nearly as connected to the story, and perhaps that's because the revenge didn't feel as sweet this time around. The ending of the film is a great sequence on its own and there are certain scenes I will certainly revisit, but I'm not sure the film as a whole works quite as well.
