Based on the 19080s television series that starred Edward Woodward, Denzel Washington plays the role of a former black ops commando, McCall in The Equalizer. Now, although McCall may have faked his death to live a peaceful life in Boston, it doesn’t mean that he isn’t trained with a particular set of skills.
For him, these skills include assassinating 5 Russian gangsters in less than 20 seconds. Yup, five. Count ’em!
In the thriller, McCall is seen coming back to life to serve vengeance against those who brutalises the helpless which leads to his desire for justice to be reawakened. The fun and exhilarating trailer for The Equalizer shows Washington playing the role of a dark knight — if someone has a problem and if they have nowhere or no one else to turn to, he will be there to save the day.
Starring alongside Chloë Grace Moretz and Marton Csokas, The Equalizer will hit cinemas on September 25th.
