Film: "The Equalizer"; Cast: Denzel Washington, Maston Csokas, Chole Grace Mortez, David Meunier and Johnny Skourtis; Director: Antoine Fuqua; Rating: **1/2
There are some strong similarities between last week's Keenu Reaves' "John Wick" and Denzel Washington's character in "The Equalizer". Like Keenu Reaves, Washington plays a man with a mysterious and deliberately cryptic past that involves a dead wife and an incident that revives his inner, baser instinct.
But unlike "John Wick", this is not a tale of revenge. Instead, its premise is strongly reminiscent of the February 2014 released Liam Neeson's "Taken". It is the tale of a man with a very particular set of skills who decides to balance injustice and exploitation by unflinchingly engaging in acts of brutal violence.
