‘The Equalizer 3’ Review: Denzel Washington Returns in a Formulaic Sequel


Antoine Fuqua’s ‘The Equalizer 3’ continues the violent trilogy, featuring Denzel Washington as Robert McCall, a relentless hero who takes out criminals with inventive brutality. However, the film lacks moral complexity, portraying Robert as unequivocally good and others as purely evil. It falls short in representing female characters.

While the film’s direction is commendable, with distinct settings and attention to detail, it falters in its screenplay. Denzel Washington’s performance elevates the film, but the script’s attempts at depth miss the mark.

‘The Equalizer 3’ offers more of the same, with a neater plot but lacks creativity. It’s a watchable yet formulaic action film that doesn’t fully utilize Washington’s talent.
