There is a storm coming…

Hurricane Denzel Washington – Pun intended [“The Hurricane” (1999)]. Based on the television series created by Michael Sloan and Richard Lindheim, and a sequel to “The Equalizer” (2014), Antoine Fuqua and Denzel Washington strike back.

When bodies around him start mysteriously dropping, the retired CIA Black Ops turned vigilante, Robert McCall, becomes once again a righteous force to be reckoned with. Action-packed as expected, “EQ2” sets the score right from the opening sequence. No cheese, catchy, cliche lines. No unnecessary mannerisms. And… not just an action film. Two priceless, non-action sequences: McCall’s speech at the elevator and… “My Sammy…”

What could add more thrill, is seeing McCall have to catch his breath every now and again or getting injured – as he makes the villains look weak. And a twist in the end. Regardless, we, the fans, look forward already to the third one.

Oh, there is a storm coming…
