Reviews for The Equalizer 2 ( 2018 ) 1080p

Side plot better than the main plot.

By: mjeffersonedu
The main plot did a bad job at explaining why the Belgium husband and wife were killed, and who ordered the hit, outside of that, sad to say Robert McCall helping of others with their problems had a better story line than the main plot.

The Un-Equalizer

By: MikeC19
As someone that enjoyed the genre thrills of the first film, I thought surely the second one, most likely, would be more of the same. I felt... that it failed miserably. Knowing that Denzel Washington doesn't usually make sequels, I figured this one should probably be pretty good. It feels like, though, that he just cashed a paycheck for this one. A long section in the middle just feels aimless, and like it's just wasting time. It takes a little while to really set up the story, and then just kind of wastes time. The action picks up more near the end, but by then, I was checked out. Melissa Leo and Bill Pullman are wasted in their roles, and have very little to do. The good guy vs. bad guy fight at the end just feels like every other action movie, and just isn't that impressive. Very disappointed with this film. They could have done so much better!

Worst movie in 2018

By: Xsdnx
This movie is the worset movie I have seen in 2018, although it starts well, after 45 minutes the movie turns to be easly predictable and the action secenes were so silley that you wonder which age group it targets?I saw many people gave the movie a rating of 9 or 10, but I can't understand why.Please don't watch the movie, so you don't encourage hollywood to make more movies.

Disappointed.

By: yannis-41887
Very very poor .not good story line poor acting and the director never seen the first equaliser. Waste 2 hours of my life.

Not worth another watch.

By: wildcats_rule
First movie was by far the best. This one takes forever. Not a far of this sequel.

Just no

By: connor-98274
Total crap no way is it better then the first. The first one had a plot and action this had nothing at all

Borinf, very standard for action movie

By: dedykie
Preety flat for action movie. All action, plot so predictable.

Not as Fast paced as the first one

By: paniwala
We expected this to be as fast paced as the first one. Very slow narration and at times dragging with too many slow side stories. Action not as fast paced and impactful as the first one. Can wait for it on HBO. Cant believe the director Antoine Fuqua is the same on this one ! Denzel Washington is good but not at his best.

Slow, overprecious, silly

By: eurobalauru
One good actor can not produce a movie, when nothing else is there to add. Small talks may not always contribute to the atmosphere, expressly when randomly thrown into the soup. And a crude story remains just a sketch, whatever you try to do with it.And this is the case with this movie. A huge potential wasted in a mediocre script, with barely convincing characters and a totally flat course. No music, nor the hurricane, could add to the lack of vibration in this scenario. This is a "Gran Torino" with a silly fake action movie beside. Denzel, who is a great actor and is playing excellent here too, becomes almost ridiculous trying to give some substance to nothing.Total disappointment, and an unreal over-rating...

Very slow and predictable

By: cshafkat-79041
I had my expectations high because I was very impressed with the first one. Unfortunately this one is a bit of a disappointment owing to the pacing and predictability of the story. It was slower and boring. If they decide to make a third one then they should make it a bit more fast paced.

Revenge isn't as Sweet

By: ThomasDrufke
If there's anyone in Hollywood that I would believe is actually a real life bada**, it's probably Denzel Washington. The first Equalizer was a surprisingly brutal and visceral action film that gave Liam Neeson movies a run for its money. While the sequel is full of just as many, if not more, incredible kill sequences by Denzel's character, I think there's a lack of connection I felt this time around. I wasn't nearly as connected to the story, and perhaps that's because the revenge didn't feel as sweet this time around. The ending of the film is a great sequence on its own and there are certain scenes I will certainly revisit, but I'm not sure the film as a whole works quite as well.

6.6/10

Better wait for it to come on TV

By: ricardo-mahshi
Being the only movie Denzel ever do a sequel for the expectations are higher than reality. This movie is mediocre at best. I love Denzel but compared to Taken, Jack Reacher or John Wick, this movie fails to reach that.

More structured action /chase is needed and some smartass survival situations by Denzel would be great and a few funny scenes of the supposedly normal life the main character is living would also be great.

Horrible!

By: josephcapp-33988
This movie is all over the place and is, in no way at all, like the first. I should have left 20 minutes in. Total waste of time.

It's ok at best.

By: water708
The first one had potentials, so i really bad high hopes for this one but sadly It felt like a long episode of a TV series.

1 question?

By: mrtimmmmm
The tv series was very good. The first movie was excellent. This one was great.So, when is #3 coming out?

Very disappointed

By: dwstahlrr
Very long for only 3 action sequences. Not better than the original. Very bad camera lighting and Directing. Several things didn't need to be related to the movie. Very very disappointed exspected much more.

Awesome

By: bori_cuba
Great Movie, loved it. Great action, Denzel did a great job. I hope they make a 3rd.

Emotional

By: alexb-55137
I was totally blown away by the whole movie. It was better than the first one by far. I hope Denzel does another one and another one and ....

Better than the original

By: dbarnetth-700-270683
In this day and age, I need to see a hero like this. Not just a good guy, but a kind man (to those who deserve it). Washington is the closest thing we have to the next Clint Eastwood. That quiet swagger is very captivating. I hope they make another.

Worth the Wait

By: the_remixer08
It's hard to say which one I loved more, but if I think hard enough, I'll give EQ2 a couple of more points over EQ1 but I can't wait to add part two to my collection. I was so emotionally invested in the sequel, but I think that's what makes it so good simply because the stories are more on a personal level and it allows you to see another side of McCall that you could have possibly missed in the first one now that we already know who he is. The action sequences were very well balanced out and kept you on edge. It didn't even feel like I was in there two hours I was so caught up in the journey. Great work. Plan on seeing it again before it leaves theaters
