Crisis but I love it when Denzel opens up a can of whip-ass! To quote Samuel L. Jackson for a second, Detective Alonzo Harris (‘Training Day’), John Creasy (‘Man On Fire’), Frank Lucas (‘American Gangster’) and Eli (‘The Book of Eli’) were all badass motherf*ckers who were all played by Denzel. He’s an intense actor who nails his characters, despite the film’s genre, every time. In ‘The Equalizer’ Denzel has teamed up with Antoine Fuqua again and plays former black ops commando who faked his death for the quiet life in Boston but has to come out of retirement to rescue a young girl from Russian gangsters. Killer plot, killer actors and a killer director. Doesn’t get better than that, does it?
You stay classy,
