Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: The Equalizer 2 delivers the visceral charge of a standard vigilante thriller, but this reunion of trusted talents ultimately proves a disappointing case study in diminishing returns.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Equalizer 2 is the sequel to Denzel Washington's 2014 action film The Equalizer and is loosely based on the same-named 1980s TV series. Like its predecessor, it's very violent, but the appealing main character and the inventive action scenes will make it entertaining for older teens and up. Expect to see lots of guns/shooting and knives/stabbing; there are blood spatters and gory wounds. Men beat up a woman, slamming her around a room, and a man shoots a woman in the head. There's also an implication of sexual abuse -- not to mention eye gouging, a man being shot with a speargun, explosions, car crashes, and crime scene photos. Language includes sporadic but strong uses of "f--k," the "N" word, and "s--t." There's a sequence involving drug dealing, hard drug use and drinking are briefly shown, and one minor character appears to be an alcoholic. Background characters smoke cigars and cigarettes. Ride service Lyft is featured prominently throughout.
