The Equalizer 3 is a film that really confuses me. It’s written, paced, and edited like a really bad student film despite having a big budget and talent behind it. It’s hard to really describe just how bad the editing of this film is. The whole film is filled with confusing edits or shots that go on too long and it makes every scene feel either cut together to reduce time or under edited and overlong. The screenplay doesn’t do…
This film understands that old people are scary
The idea of flipping the genre trope of sex gets you killed is really interesting and is executed really well. To me the slasher element just came into the film a bit too late and the payoff felt rushed. I would probably be more forgiving of that because of the smart commentary on genre if It Follows hadn’t of a very similar thing much better back in 2014.
