Either I have missed the news, or there has been little reported about Denzel Washington’s upcoming movie, The Equalizer. Which could be a bad sign.
I know many say that if you have seen one of Washington’s movies, you have seen them all pretty much. Not sure I agree with that, and it certainly hasn’t kept me from enjoying his films. His latest film, The Equalizer, is based on the ’80s TV series of the same name and it looks like it will be pretty good action movie too.
The Equalizer is directed by Antoine Fuqua and stars Denzel Washington, Chloë Grace Moretz, Marton Csokas, David Harbour, Bill Pullman, Melissa Leo, The Equalizer arrives in theaters on September 26, 2014.
Washington headlines as McCall, a former black ops commando who has faked his death to live a quiet life in Boston. When he comes out of his self-imposed retirement to rescue a young girl, Teri (Chloë Grace Moretz), he finds himself face to face with ultra-violent Russian gangsters. As he serves vengeance against those who brutalize the helpless, McCall’s desire for justice is reawakened. If someone has a problem, the odds are stacked against them, and they have nowhere else to turn, McCall will help. He is The Equalizer.
