Advocates of better than expected 1980s TV shows may review a rough and puzzling Edward Woodward in a stellar turn as shady office compose Robert McCall dispensing merited retaliation on all way of ne'er-do-wells. Its preface rotated around McCall - frequented by his past life - offering to put things ideal by aiding those in require against powers of abhorrence, as a result balancing rights and wrongs. It was a fascinating idea, legitimizing vicious vengeance by imparting its legend with a savage good compass.

By means of a marginally overweight center act, we're dealt with to a last confrontation at what one may pithily portray as "Home Alone"- base, amid which McCall dispatches terrible folks with savage proficiency through a mix of sand, a bore, a few shears and different joys accessible at your nearby tool shop. It's strong, if unspectacular passage, however that said "The Equalizer" is sufficiently smooth and sufficiently frantic to hold the consideration;
