The Equalizer | ★★★★★★★☆☆☆

I recently recorded this 2014 movie and watched it yesterday. Denzel Washington plays a terrific tough guy. He is great in this flick about a man with a mysterious past who comes out of retirement to take down a bunch of Russian Mob bad guys. The plot drew me in and kept me interested.

I like action flicks and this one definitely checked off that box for me. Even so, it did remind me that justice often looks more like payback and revenge for many people. That said, I liked the way that Denzel's character was painted as flawed by his past and was trying to do better.

Overall, I liked the movie and, on a scale of ten, give it ★★★★★★★☆☆☆.
