The actor who brings justice to every action movie he stars in, Denzel Washington, graces the big screen once more with his heroic demeanor in the upcoming action film “The Equalizer.” He is co-starred by Chloë Grace Moretz, the hit young actress known for the fantastic role she played in the “Kick-Ass” movie installments. The movie is directed by Antoine Fuqua, who resumes partnership with Washington for the second time after “Training Day.” It is set to hit the U.S. theaters on Sept. 26, 2014. Read on to find out more about “The Equalizer,” including a brief synopsis and other details about the film.

“The Equalizer” Synopsis:


Robert McCall (Washington) is a former black ops commando who staged his death as a form of permanent exit to the violence of the force. Living the quiet life, he’s done so much to purse in Boston. The ex-commando straps on his militaristic nature once more to rescue the hardened damsel, Teri (Moretz). In his efforts to retake the young woman, he sparks a war between him and the Russian mob.

“The film is all about a guy who is a knight in shining armor, except he lives in a world where knights no longer exist”, wrote Whitney Friedlander in Variety.

Sony Pictures galvanized a lot of viewers when they released the first trailer of the movie adaptation of the 1980s CBS series, “The Equalizer.” It was created based on the visual creativity of Michael Sloan and Richard Lindheim.

Introduced with the musical collaboration of Eminem and Sia, the trailer for the movie certainly set high expectations for the film. The action sequences were very hardcore, and one can be left in awe with Washington’s second to none acting prowess as he exudes the right kind of cold-heartedness in the right scenes.

Denzel Washington springs back into action as he corrects the wrongs and fights for the weak. The viewers will be left with their mouths hanging open from its fast-paced play. The cast is also joined in by Melissa Leo, Marton Csokas and Haley Bennett. Moreover, acting is not the only thing Washington did for the film. He is also part of the producers’ team, along with Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal, Alex Siskin, Steve Tisch, Mace Neufeld, Tony Eldridge and Michael Sloan.

The trailer is able to present him magnanimously with the way he gets things done in a matter of estimated seconds. From the preview alone, the film has already gained such high test numbers of audiences, which signaled Sony to set things in motion for a sequel penned by Richard Wenk.

Coming to the theaters with lethal dose of action, “The Equalizer” is a movie that will make you mark your calendars for its release on Sept. 26, 2014.
