Denzel wanted the fight scenes he participated in to be as realistic as possible. So they brought in UFC Welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley to train Danzel for his fight scenes. See more »
During the final battle, McCall shot at the transformer on the pole, which exploded and generates a smoke screen, before he enters the bakery. He then cuts open bags of flour/sugar and turn on the fan to blow on the flour/sugar. There should not be any electricity because he just blew up the transformer. See more »
The UK release is pre-cut to secure a 15 certificate instead of an 18, reducing scenes of "strong violence and gore".
Compared to the New Zealand release (whose rating board also releases full running times in mm:ss), it's 11s shorter at 120:34 instead of 120:45. The cut version was released on DVD & Blu-ray while the uncut version was released on Ultra HD Blu-ray.
The following was removed:
an already broken arm being further twisted
two knives being pulled upwards in a man's body at the end of stabbing
a gory shot of insides hanging out after an explosion
a man's spine being severed before he's thrown off a building
If there's anyone in Hollywood that I would believe is actually a real life bada**, it's probably Denzel Washington. The first Equalizer was a surprisingly brutal and visceral action film that gave Liam Neeson movies a run for its money. While the sequel is full of just as many, if not more, incredible kill sequences by Denzel's character, I think there's a lack of connection I felt this time around. I wasn't nearly as connected to the story, and perhaps that's because the revenge didn't feel as sweet this time around. The ending of the film is a great sequence on its own and there are certain scenes I will certainly revisit, but I'm not sure the film as a whole works quite as well.
