All Men Are Not Created Equalizer

Denzel Washington & Chloe Moretz in THE EQUALIZER.

“A man can be an artist at anything,” Christopher Walken said in Man on Fire, speaking of Denzel Washington‘s burnt-out assassin character, Joyhn (!) Creasy. “Creasy’s art is death. He’s about to paint his masterpiece.”

Ten years later, Washington is playing another regret-haunted killer who returns to the warpath when a young girl to whom he feels a protective attachment is hurt. But the regret-haunted killer he plays in The Equalizer is a more personable and approachable guy, one who drinks special tea instead of booze. Are you not entertained? My NPR review is here.
