The Equalizer

This is good, better than I expected.  It starts off a little slow.  That might be my biggest compliant or only compliant. Maybe some of the dialouge about books comes across a bit heavy-handed.

Denzil Washington stars as Robert McColl, a former CIA agent in retirement. (This movie does not really seem like what I remember about the old TV series.) He is working at a Lowes or Home Depot type store.  When something bad happens, he gets involved and starts to use his old skills.

Denzil is good as always. The main villlain is good. There are a few subplots.  It is a not a classic but I’d be interested in a sequel. It did seem like the movie was a bit longer than it needed to be.  Maybe the sequel, if there is one, could start more quickly.
