    Denzel Washington stars. They truly have run out of ideas. :facepalm:


    "In The Equalizer, Denzel Washington plays McCall, a former black ops commando who has faked his death to live a quiet life in Boston. When he comes out of his self-imposed retirement to rescue a young girl, Teri (Chloë Grace Moretz), he finds himself face to face with ultra-violent Russian gangsters. As he serves vengeance against those who brutalize the helpless, McCall’s desire for justice is reawakened. If someone has a problem, the odds are stacked against them, and they have nowhere else to turn, McCall will help. He is The Equalizer."

    Was one of my favorite shows as a kid. Might be a good way to waste 2 hours if there's nothing better to do.

    Sounds like it can easily be a Man On Fire sequel. You know, if he didn't get killed in it.

    For its time, it was a very good show.

    At least the first two years.

    Kinda like the first year of Wise Guy :secret:

    The Sonny Stealgrave season of that show is without a doubt one of the best seasons of television of all time IMHO. I think the subsequent seasons, although not as fantastic, were still some of the best TV on at the time. Even the Jerry Lewis season was compelling. And Kevin Spacey was terrific
