Is Denzel Washington really a Superhero? Daniel Washington has done more than 50 films in his career span of 40 years. Antoine Fuqua has been the director for 20 years. They have collaborated before for three movies including the Oscar-winning Training Day but this is for the first time that either of them has done a sequel.

Coming to the movie, Robert McCall ( Washington) plays a modest, cap-wearing Boston Lyft driver who reads authors like Ta- Nehisi Coates and Marcel Proust. But the reality is different. He was a government agent in the past who takes advantage of the fact his former bosses believe he is dead to make this world a better place in his own way.

He is the loneliest and deadliest of lone vigilantes who hides his power under that bookworm demeanor. And he certainly doesn't want to be thanked for the wrongs he has right. Washington is America's one of the best actors and he has clearly enjoyed playing this character in the first Equalizer but something seems to be missing in this film.

He has thrown himself fully into the character using his superb gravitas and credibility to elevate it while letting it being human enough for us to worry about its safety. The nature of Wenk's plot plays a great role in dealing with the morality of violence and shrews the idea of making the battles that McCall fights in a way they have not been before.

When it comes to action sequences, Fuqua is strong enough to earn an R rating for "brutal violence throughout," never lingers on the carnage. Instead, it presents violence in intense bursts that are so beautifully edited (by Oscar winner Conrad Buff) that they almost feel subliminal.

Not everything in "Equalizer 2" is great, a subplot about a Yiddish-speaking Holocaust survivor played by Orson Bean totally misses the mark. But the film is effective where it needs to be.
