Vigilante follow-up fails to fire
Denzel Washington in The Equalizer II

If the first Equalizer existed only to rapidly progress our unstoppable Good Samaritan though a hierarchy of disposable bad guys on his way to a grandstanding showdown, this more protracted edition is easily distracted and ludicrously contrived.

The Equalizer 2: Directed by: Antoine Fuqua, Nationwide, 15A, Rating: **

The Eyes of Orson Welles: Directed by: Mark Cousins, Selected, no cert, Rating: ****

The National Rifle Association has a slogan it trots out when ever anyone has the temerity to challenge its reactionary political agenda: “The only thing capable of stopping a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.”
