Why why why do people still mess with Denzel Washington?!! Have they learned nothing from Man on Fire? Evidently not.

In Antoine Fuqua’s The Equalizer, Washington plays a seemingly mild-mannered guy with a bad case of insomnia. When a young prostitute whom he has befriended is beaten by her boss, Denzel declares a one-man fatwa on the entire Russian mafia.

Brian, Elliott, and Beau muster all the courage they have and stare down the barrel of Denzel’s cinematic rampage for this Highly Suspect Review, which is brought to you by Home Depot. The rampage that is, not the review.
