Default 'The Equalizer' - High-Def Digest Review

Shannon has reviewed 'The Equalizer', He was turned off by the excessive violence, but says this is a solid piece of entertainment, almost entirely due to Denzel Washington's performance. Based on Denzel's work, this is recommended.

Wow this came out fast. Glad I did not bother seeing it in theaters.

I found it beneath Denzel.. he was fair but they never really fleshed out the "Sherlock Holmes power" he possessed..he needed more screen time with ChloŽ Grace (which was the real strength of the movie), the supporting cast, even the main villain were rather forgettable.. the weight-losing security guard was an unbelievably bad sub-plot.. 2.5 from me.

Not any faster than most Blu releases. The norm for most movies to come out on Blu is 3-4 months after the release of the film. And it was worth seeing in theaters. Give me a break.

This may end up being a blind buy instead of a rental for me. Thanks Shannon for the great review
