Movie Review: The Equalizer - R

Denzel Washington is Robert McCall.  McCall has both a mysterious past, and a set of special skills.  He is 'retired' from his former life with no intention of returning to it.  But then he meets Teri, a young girl who has fallen under the control of the Russian mob.  McCall can't stand idly by, and decides to help her.   

The story is very well-told and engaging, with an appropriate level of tension throughout.  Denzel is particularly good as McCall.  IMHO,  the ending implies there might be a sequel, and I sure hope there is :)

Content warnings include violence, and language.
