TV Spot: The Equalizer 2 (2018)

Here is a new TV spot for Sony’s The Equalizer 2.

The film is directed by Antoine Fuqua.  The original screening earned the highest rated ‘R’ testing in Sony’s history.  Will the second one prove to be any good?

Maybe the scheduling might be an indicator.  Originally set for a late September release, Sony bumped the film up to a more competitive late July release (20th).

In the second film, Robert McCall returns to deliver his special brand of vigilante justice — but how far will he go when it’s someone he loves?

    The first film was fairly entertaining, my main issue was his gimmick was a bad idea and his general total domination of most of his opponents.
    His gimmick – the timing thing using his watch destroys any tension/drama in his fights when he is fighting multiple opponents. Fighting multiple opponents and beating them easily is a cliché that action movies could do with escaping.
    Why in a choreographed fight would you choose to have a one way beat down, how is that exciting?
    They certainly happen in superhero films but that is slightly more acceptable when you have a man or woman with powers fighting normal humans.

    In a normal action movie where your hero doesn’t have powers this seems like a bad choice imho.
    let me compare to sports fighting for a moment.
    What are the best fights? they certainly aren’t the one sided walkovers are they.
    They are things like …. forrest griffin vs Stephan bonnar, ali vs foreman (rumble in the jungle) barrera vs morales (boxing) The first fight between micky ward arturo gatti.
    Now these are real fights so they are not guaranteed to be two sided but when talking about a choreographed fight why make it one sided unless you have a plot specific reason that it needs to be.
