The appealing conceit of 2014’s The Equalizer was Denzel Washington as a mild-mannered shop attendant by day, and a John Wick-style killing machine by night – don’t go near him if you’re the Russian mob.

It’s just too giddy a premise to be left alone. In reuniting for their first ever sequel, director Antoine Fuqua has tweaked Washington’s Robert McCall, who re-emerges as a Lyft driver. Shedding light into his deep state past, we learn that it’s come back to more than haunt him, in fact as McCall says, “They’re going to war with me”. It’s novel, and in a gripping way, to watch a two-time Oscar-winner channel his inner assassin in such an efficient and brutal manner, where even a credit card becomes a weapon. If you want thrills, he got game.
