Saw it today. Good film, couple of plot holes, but still the full Denzel.

Saw it this weekend and it was everything I hoped it would be.

I did leave wanting some Italian food however!

At almost 70, this is probably Denzel’s last action movie. I thought it was very well done, especially when I found myself trying to make sense early on in the film of why he was in Italy. Of course, it was spelled out late in the film, and I thought it was a great nod to the 1980s TV show.

I kept hoping the movies would introduce a version of Mickey Kostmayer. But, I guess I have to be thankful that they didn’t, and ruin that character for me.

Guess I need to watch the 1st two. Not sure I have even heard of The Equalizer before this thread.

You are the first person I have encountered who has said that they did not like Training Day.
For me, that will always be in my top five Denzel Movies.

I know I am in the minority on this one just like Breaking Bad but I hated it.

I also hate Breaking Bad. I do like Training Day though. Training Day is better than any of the Equalizer movies, IMO.

I love Scott Glenn's snail joke.

I can understand this Black. I find Training Day to be a hard watch, but his performance was powerful. The scene where he leaves him to be executed and then they discover that he was the one who saved his niece was awesome.
Most do not agree with me but I have always felt Street Kings was a better movie than John Wick. However, I will acknowledge that John Wick was more 'fun'.

I'm with Black, I didn't know about these movies. And honestly, I don't remember if I ever saw Man on Fire, but I have heard of it.

This sure looks good, but I guess I should watch earlier ones first.

Saw it in theater Saturday night. I will agree it was a good movie and allowed me to shut off my brain for a couple hours. It's what used to be a typical summer action movie and is generally the type of movie I enjoy as there is no convoluted plot to follow. I'm just there to watch the ass whooping and to relax in the a/c.

I think I enjoyed it more than Oppenheimer or the Meg2, both of which I've seen recently. Oppenheimer is a better film in about every way if that's what you want, but the jumping timelines and different perspectives make it difficult to follow without some effort.


A Perpetual Disappointment...

Saw it today. To be honest, I thought the first two were much better, with the first one being the best. Not a good story and a lot of plot holes. Plus, the villains were pretty lame and cartoonish.

I saw it just now on Vudu and it’s a great nicely written and tight movie. Not 1 inch of footage was wasted.

Spoiler Alert!!!!

For example, the scene where the police chief goes to the main villain to tell him to shut everything down at the same time they’re having a wake. A very efficient two-fer.

All the set ups were there and nicely done. Such as the scenes where Denzel is building connections with the town people.

Of course, some scenes strained credulity such as the fish monger not making Denzel pay just because he’s a friend of the doctor. But they needed to throw a lot in order to build the foundation for what happens at the showdown.

I didn’t get the answer to the question Why her?

He sends her a notebook with the post it note saying your mother would be proud of you. Then she looks at the picture on her desk of her family photo with her mom and dad.

Would someone please explain that?

Because she is the daughter of his old friend from the CIA. She was murdered in her hotel room (Equilizer 2) when she traveled to Europe on an investigation.

Glory was, and is still one of my top 10 films I have ever seen. A flawless film from the first frame to the last. Freeman and Denzel’s performances were just, well no words to describe how good. Denzel, won a supporting Oscar for that role, back when the Academy was worth a shit. Then Training Day, same thing. Best Actor award, deserved, when the Academy was worth a shit. Not only one of his best roles (3 for me are Glory, Malcom X, and Training Day) but one for the ages. Fuqua killed it too. Training Day is up there with Heat for best cop films of all time and one of the best films in the past 25 years.

Aah.. thank you! Since I bought the bundle, I'll go watch that sequel again. Like others, I didn't think EQ2 was as good as the first one.

The first two were much better IMO. I guess I'm a bit of an uncultured neanderthal, but I despise subtitles. Way too distracting, especially in a movie that jumps around so much.

And Dakota Fanning was a poor casting choice in a film like this.

Good story, as usual, but I find myself wishing that I'd have saved the $20.

I actually prefer having subtitles on for movies. I read faster than I listen.
