Conclusion: The Equalizer 2 (2018) Film Review

The Equalizer 2 builds on the first film by digging deeper into Robert McCall’s background. This makes the film far more personal than the first outing. It does this whilst still delivering a fantastically entertaining story. Will there be a third film? I think there is still enough there worth exploring so I sure hope so.
