The Equalizer ★★★

Moody and centered by a good Washington, the story doesn’t dwell on the past but swiftly kicks into high gear when OCD Robert, a cia black ops retiree becomes involved with a hooker (unconvincing Chloë) who is abused by pimp and clients alike. Denzel looks fine delivering the action which is well shot, apart from the obvious visuals that Sherlock Holmes offered- but the script is hammy full of over the top swearing ( David Harbour must be cringing with his atrocious Boston accent a flurry of fucking muddahfuckahs), then it’s gets far fetched from the third act on as his targets become bigger and bolder. There’s even a walk away without flinching explosion!
