The Equalizer

Simply, this film is non stop action with no time for complicated storytelling, no room for explanations and context. Denzel delivers a dose of adrenaline and pure kick ass action. Best way I can explain it is, it’s just entertainment purely for the sake of entertaining. Where the film “Taken” won my sympathy for the character, and I believed in the plot overall. This film didn’t quite do that for me as I wish it had. However it’s too good not to keep out of the action collection, let alone the Denzel collection. If you're a fan of Denzel, go out and buy it, if not go find a red box or wait till it comes to Netflix.
McCall is a former black ops commando who has faked his death to live a quiet life in Boston. When he comes out of his self-imposed retirement to rescue a young girl, Teri, he finds himself face to face with ultra-violent Russian gangsters. As he serves vengeance against those who brutalize the helpless, McCall's desire for justice is reawakened. If someone has a problem, the odds are stacked against them, and they have nowhere else to turn, McCall will help. He is The Equalizer.   -(IMDB)

Alayna Caudle - 
Wickedly Refreshing . David Fincher brings this labyrinth web of mystery to life on screen. Based on the novel by Gillian Flynn, this film is an irresistible suspense. This is a fun puzzle to play with friends, or just challenge yourself.  While I’ve never excited or impressed by any of Affleck’s performances, this is the first film of his that I will actually buy. Not because of his acting alone, but the film as a whole is really good. Sure there are plenty of other films anyone could argue are better, more intricate, etc..... In the suspense drama category of 2014, this is the best I’ve seen so far. If there’s a better one out here, please share in the comments below.
