Review: Denzel Washington Shines Once Again In ‘The Equalizer 3’



Denzel Washington returns to the screen as the enigmatic and relentless vigilante Robert McCall in “The Equalizer 3,” the latest installment in this action-packed franchise.

Directed by Antoine Fuqua, the film continues the tradition of delivering intense action sequences and a compelling storyline, making it a thrilling addition to the series.

Since giving up his life as a government assassin, McCall (Washington) has struggled to reconcile the horrific things he’s done in the past and finds a strange solace in serving justice on behalf of the oppressed. Finding himself surprisingly at home in Southern Italy, he discovers his new friends are under the control of local crime bosses. As events turn deadly, McCall knows what he has to do: become his friends’ protector by taking on the mafia.

This time, the stakes are even higher, and McCall’s unique skills and unshakable moral code are put to the test once again.

Director Antoine Fuqua, who has collaborated with Washington on multiple occasions, brings his signature style to “Equalizer 3.” The film boasts well-choreographed action sequences, including hand-to-hand combat, car chases, and shootouts, all of which are executed with precision and flair. Fuqua’s keen eye for cinematography and pacing keeps the audience engaged throughout the film’s runtime.

The supporting cast, including Dakota Fanning and David Denman delivers commendable performances that complement Washington’s on-screen presence. Each character adds depth to the storyline and helps build tension as the plot unfolds.

One of the strengths of “Equalizer 3” lies in its ability to tackle relevant social issues. The film explores themes of justice, revenge, and the consequences of one’s actions, prompting viewers to contemplate the moral complexities of McCall’s mission. This depth adds a layer of substance to what could have otherwise been just another action-packed blockbuster.

While “Equalizer 3” excels in many aspects, it does occasionally dip into predictable territory, with some plot twists and character motivations feeling somewhat formulaic. However, the strong performances and Washington’s magnetic presence compensate for these minor shortcomings.

“The Equalizer 3” is in theaters September 1st.
