Why watch this film?
The Equalizer 3, the third and seemingly final film in The Equalizer saga, an adaptation of the 1980s series, sees Denzel Washington once again portraying Robert McCall, the man who kills without hesitation. Here, he is working in Italy when he comes across a small town that captivates him – everyone is benevolent, and it's hard not to feel sympathy for the village, which seems lost in time. The problem, as always, is the mafia. Like a militia, they make disproportionate (and violent) demands on shopkeepers, killing and torturing. This is when Robert begins his action plan, ready to kill anyone who stands in his way and in the way of anyone who threatens his new home. With Antoine Fuqua's firm direction once again, who directed the other two films, The Equalizer 3 offers another intense action film that, unlike productions like John Wick, doesn't focus solely on the fight but also on the character development. A good example of what makes a great action movie.
