"You can be anything you want to be…"
Boredom attacked yesterday. Habibi really wanted to watch a movie so we checked cinecomovies.com. Although we are eyeing Walk among the tombstones, which stars Liam Neeson, he chose to buy tickets for the movie The Equalizer. I am not a big fan of action films, nor movies of Denzel Washington, but since that is his choice, I should also go, right? J Besides, women can easily absorb action films than men adopting chick flicks :D
The Equalizer is about Mr. Mc Call played by Denzel Washington, a self-proclaimed retired intelligence Officer with a set of special skills. He chose to live a normal, ordinary quiet life, until he met a young girl who is under a control of violent Russian Mob.
Literally, The Equalizer means giving some balance in the society. And that is actually his role in this film. He did gave justice in portraying, although the lame part of the movie is that too many chit chats, and too many pauses. Although the screenplay is quite impressive, and holds an above average rating at the Rotten Tomatoes (59%), it didn’t’ struck me that much as I don’t know if this is drama film or an action movie. Good thing they picked an actor who can deliver the role with no effort.
Needless to say, but this may not complete your weekend. If you are into an action film, this is good, but you can find a better one.
