First Glance: “The Equalizer 3”

They had me at Denzel Washington. The endlessly charismatic 68-year-old Oscar winner has such a presence and has proven to be able to do just about anything. Take his action-fueled Equalizer films which see him playing a retired Marine turned vigilante. He brings such intensity to the role and you never doubt him for a second. He’s among our greatest actors and it’s a treat whenever he delivers something new. In this case its “The Equalizer 3”, the final chapter in his surprise hit trilogy.

“The Equalizer 3” is Washington’s fifth collaboration with director Antoine Fuqua. It also sees him reuniting with Dakota Fanning for the first time since starring together in 2004’s “Man on Fire”. In this film Washington’s character, Robert McCall has finally found what looks like peace in a quiet town in Southern Italy. But after a local mob boss takes control, things take a deadly turn. Suddenly McCall once again finds himself serving up justice on behalf of the persecuted. The red band trailer shows Denzel pouring out his own brand of bloody judgement. Fuqua looks to be giving fans a rousing finish to the Equalizer series.

“The Equalizer 3” hits theaters September 1, 2023. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.

  1. This looks cool. Love seeing Denzel kick some ass. I’m also stoke at seeing Dakota Fanning as I love Man on Fire. That film ruled! I’m still waiting for Denzel to do a comedy.
