In what has become the wheelhouse for older male actors, Denzel Washington continues to beat people up and save women.  His latest foray into the revenge thriller trope is an 80’s TV property that also involved an older dude beating people up. The small screen version of “The Equalizer” starred British actor Edward Woodward as Robert McCall, a former government operative called upon to help those who can’t help themselves.

The movie version is directed by the highly underrated Antoine Fuqua and also stars Chloe Grace Moretz, Melissa Leo and Marton Csokas as the big baddie. Trailer below:

“The Equalizer” opens wide in theaters and IMAX September 26, 2014.
