In The Equalizer, Denzel Washington plays Robert McCall, a former black ops commando who has a mysterious past and comes out of retirement to save a young girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) from Russian gangsters. Washington is at his strong, silent and deadly best here, wreaking havoc on the bad guys and looking cool as a cucumber doing it, thanks to director Antoine Fuqua’s signature action sequences.
The film marks the first time Washington has reteamed with Fuqua since 2001’s Training Day. Given that Washington won a Best Actor Academy Award as a result of that collaboration, it’s no surprise that The Equalizer is already generating Oscar buzz for the star.
