The Equalizer 3 - Review

We All End Up Where We Are Supposed To Be.

3 / 5

The Guardians of the Galaxy team line up

Directed by Antoine Fuqua

Robert McCall finds himself at home in Southern Italy but he discovers his friends are under the control of local crime bosses.

Denzel Washington returns to complete an unexpected trilogy with the sole outcome of proving that he is still the man.


As Washington's Robert McCall looks to retire in the remote coastal Italian town of Altamonte, trouble isn't far behind him, as he discovers the Camorra silently controls the town. It isn't long before he returns to his violent problem management with a brutal ferocity that stands out from the previous films.


Reuniting with Man on Fire's Dakota Fanning, The Equalizer 3 sits in that awful middle level of being perfectly acceptable and not much else. There's no real reason for it to exist except to give closure to a character last seen in 2014 that no one was asking for. The film delivers on its conclusion in a surprisingly confident and effective manner but the film very much acts as a wistful epilogue rather than an epic conclusion.


Perfect for a Sunday afternoon and to confirm that Denzel is often the best part of any project he touches.
