Plot: 8/10
Review:8/10
Imax: No

Remarks: Initially the role of Robert McCall was meant for Russell Crowe but however they drop the name and opted Denzel. The Equalizer seems modernize and keeping the original essence. This one of those movie, that just follow thru instead of A-Team recipe of disaster. A highly recommended movie to those who love this 80’s series.
