Best movie ever!
Enjoyable enough, the acting is all top notch and the action that you get is what you expect and the cinematography especially in the hurricane part is beautiful, but a few things meant I really didn't enjoy it as much has the first one.The pacing is terrible, it feels so slow, there is literally no explanation for why the guy and his wife are murdered in Belgium, it's just a random vehicle to get the whole revenge plot line started, also they could have lost the whole Jewish dude part of the story and the film would not have suffered for it, The twist with his ex poor in comparison to the Russian dude in the first movie. Also is Susan's husband still sitting in that Motel? How did the bleeding stop completely from a gun shot wound after 15 seconds? When did he have time to stick pictures of Susan all over the town?6.5 out of 10. Could have been so much better. Denzel carried it on his shoulders.
Dear action lovers, The Equalizer 2 is not so popular in Indonesia, because it cames up at the same time with Mission Impossible 4 and Christopher Robin, and yes Denzel Washington is old enough to be the main figure in the movie poster. So when I chose to watch this movie, I didn't expect anything, but then I am really really entertained. Denzel is still stunning like hell. His actions I think are all original without stuntmen. The main story of this movie is about the investigation of a crime scene that leads to other big crimes. The way the Director lead the audience is so smooth but sure. We can not blink our eye because each scene is connected to each other. The cinematographer are quite professional to do grammar of the scene because audience can not guess who is responsible for all crimes, yet we knew that Denzel is the only one hero here. I am not familiar about the first movie of Equalizer, but it seems that the appearance of Denzel here is the continuity of his role on the first part. This movie is for adult because there are many hard language and blood scenes. I recommend this movie for your weekend; really intimate, tense, sensational, unpredictable!!
I just came from watching this movie, we were 3 people in the cinema, well it was noon on a Friday.The whole film is packed with adrenaline and emotions. The ending is beautiful and tearing. Equalizer and John Wick are two of my favorite action films.
I didn't expect too much for this sequel when sawing the movie trailer. But when I actually see the movie this week, I can not move my eyes away from screen. It so intents and enjoyable. It is even better than the first movie... Great Job!!
