Denzel Washington is an excellent actor. He is one of the few African-American actor who made it Oscars.That itself is a proof that what he is capable of. Washington has came after a while onscreen with his latest film "The Equalizer". The film's title has been justified in a way he tries to equalize or minimize the crime rate.The cinematography is really different in the film. It gives a common mans perspective instead of royal one. This makes the film realistic, enjoyable and different.Initially I personally got a bit bored as the movie has a slow start but as soon as it gets the desired momentum. It never steps back.The film becomes really violent after a while. The desire for killing in the movie is way too high. Denzel played McCall a mysterious,minded and kind hearted concerned citizen. That's what he calls himself once.
McCall is actually a former intelligence officer who faked his own death. Yet to save a strange girl named Elena (Chloe Grace Moretz) she makes an exception. Elena is actually involved into Russian escort services which has multiple links in Russia and US.The more McCall is trying to save the girl the more he gets involved in the Russian mobster. The obvious tension between Russia and America is also a part of the film. The abusive language is way too much here. If you does not like violent movies few scenes may even horrify you. This film may be not likely for everyone.
"The Equalizer" is solely about Denzel Washington's character. He will not disappoint his fans by this film. He may even create a unique fan followers list by this film. His unique etiquette and mannerism is even ahead from Jason Statham is some ways if not in every way.The hardcore war between the Russian mobster and McCall is what film has got in the later half.The support actors just form a part of the story but other then that its not .The camera work is really different because it being extracted from the day to day events.
Verdict:- Good in a different way
Ratings:- 3 / 5 Stars
