When Robert beats up the men who abused the woman, he asks for any cell phones or cameras that they may have used. After the assault he never looks for them or takes them. This is made even more obvious because someone gave him a Lyft review after he left (which is it's own problem). See more »
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 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.
