I finally got the chance to watch “Equalizer 2” on Vudu. I must say I wasn’t that impressed with this one. I had to watch it twice. I thought at first I was just expecting what I saw in the first one. I had to clear my thoughts of the first one, minus the important details that carried over. And watching it a second time, I didn’t change my stance on how I felt about the movie.
The movie started very slow. I understand it had to have some back information, however, it was very slow starting, too much talking for almost the entire first hour. I found some parts of that hour entertaining. You do see the McCall charm as he deals with various people in his everyday life. I do like how they play through his emotions from the time he finds out about his friend until the end.
There wasn’t much action in this one. It seems as if all the action scenes were what we saw in the trailers for the movie. I’d say the climax of the movie hit in the second half.
There wasn’t clarity in the locations. One second you’re in the city. Next someone is asking for the airport, but they don’t show up in Brussels until a few scenes later, after they did something in the city.
I believe they could have made the movie a bit better than they did as far as consistency. The acting itself was good all the around. The story line was decent.
