Been a while since the first one, but great to see Denzel kicking booty again. I don't think he has ever been in a movie sequel by the way.

I liked the first one. Didn't love it, but it was worth a watch.

Really though, this type of story is much more suited to TV than movies.

I actually enjoyed the storyline very much in the first Equalizer. Denzel kept my attention the entire time. I have to say that I was excited when I saw the trailer at the movies this weekend.

I really liked the first one, but I have heard a few people say they didnt care for it, mainly because at no point was it a challenge for Denzels character.

I saw it on Netflix and thought it worked fine on the small screen.

The scope is totally within the capabilities of a Netflix production as well.

Saw this on 20 July 2018. Every bit as cool as the first movie. Good action movie. Hint: Good guy wins.

Just saw this.

It was alright.

It was predictable. I knew what was going to happen 30 minutes in.

But it was good/okay. I enjoyed it.

Put it this way...

Seen "Safe House?"
Seen "Man On Fire?"
Did you know those were both Denzel movies?

Then put them together and... you've seen this already.

Had some spare time, looking to get busy again, saw this, not a bad movie just super predictable.

Yeah, I think this is meant to be a simple popcorn movie. Nothing really new or earth shattering.

It's a wannabe Liam Neeson franchise (Taken) and it's crappy reviews suggest it's not worth it.

The first one was mildly interesting, second one, don't bother.
