This is a sequel to the 2014 film The Equalizer which was based on the TV series of the same name. It is worth noting that it is for the first time that Denzel Washington has starred in a sequel to one of his films! Interestingly, it is for the fourth time that Denzel Washington and director Antonie Fuqua, have joined hands after Training Day (2001), The Equalizer (2014) and The Magnificent Seven (2016). Denzel Washington is one actor who is capable of handling hard core action-oriented characters as well as soft roles equally well! Who else can qualify to play the Equalizer! Who can forget his memorable performance in Mira Nair’s Mississippi Masala (1991)!
