action cinema Hollywood continues to give us great pleasure from time to time, but it’s true that the brutal dominance of the superhero figure has given way to more and more. One of the most recent cases I can remember is The Equalizer 2, a better sequel to the first installment than anyone anticipated and available on Amazon Prime Video starting today.
‘The Equalizer 2’ is recovering Denzel Washington Like Robert McCall, who must investigate the death of a colleague while at the same time helping a troubled teen in his neighborhood. From the outset this is a film that opts for a different approach from its predecessor, which is appreciated, but it’s in its final stages when it reaches a completely unexpected level of brilliance.
That last act of ‘The Equalizer 2’ alone is worth more than 90% of action movies Hollywood so far in the 21st century. Both the setting and vibe of the staging, the control of the spaces, the force of the action and the atmosphere of tension generated by Antoine Fuqua make you completely immersed in what is happening on the screen.
For his part, Washington once again handles himself with great ease in a character that has become so acclaimed that we’ll soon be seeing him again in The Equalizer 3. here he also gets on very well with the rest of the cast, especially a Peter PascalCurrently Very Trendy Thanks to ‘The Last of Us’, That he manages to convey a character that wasn’t such a big deal on paper ranks as one of his best works on the big screen.
Also there’s ‘The Equalizer 2’ a very effective pastimeOr – the actor himself told us at the time that “I go to the movies to be entertained, not to be educated“- who knows action is very important, but also to give some emotion to the story so that the audience becomes more involved with their characters.
