About the Movie

In The Equalizer, Denzel Washington plays McCall, a man who believes he has put his mysterious past behind him and dedicated himself to beginning a new, quiet life. But when McCall meets Teri (Chloë Grace Moretz), a young girl under the control of ultra-violent Russian gangsters, he can't stand idly by - he has to help her. Armed with hidden skills that allow him to serve vengeance against anyone who would brutalize the helpless, McCall comes out of his self-imposed retirement and finds his desire for justice reawakened. If someone has a problem, if the odds are stacked against them, if they have nowhere else to turn, McCall will help. He is The Equalizer.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: If The Equalizer is the hit it should be, it will give this veteran action star his very first movie franchise. – Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine, Oct 16, 2014

Fresh: If you skip it, you're missing one of the year's signal works of superior Hollywood craftsmanship. – Andrew O'Hehir,, Sep 26, 2014

Rotten: This mini-genre has begun to feel more and more expendable. – Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger, Sep 26, 2014

Rotten: The movie's all about reading, especially with a critical eye, but when you take too close a look at its disparate parts, they neither add up nor have anything constructive to teach. – Katie Kilkenny, The Atlantic, Jul 19, 2016

I was not worthy

THIS is a real movie. That's all

I didn't even get to watch it

I rented it and it took a while to download so when I finally downloaded it. It was gone from my downloads. So I didn't even get to watch it.


Worst movie by Denzel Washington ever. Denzel you really should have skipped this script from h***. I have seen the original tv series and this was a total insult to that series. There was no plot , oh sorry there was one. A man suffering OCD used his watch as a counter to see how many seconds it took him to kill a room or alley full of people. Denzel have you not made enough money so you don't have to make this kind of crap.
