You won't usually find Denzel Washington in a movie sequel.Fans of the first film will know why Washington is drawn to the character of Robert McCall – a quiet, middle-aged former special-ops agent who fiercely believes in justice, likes to help others and dispenses the occasional lethal killing for those deserving."The Equalizer 2" reconnects many of the people behind the 2014 debut alongside the always-vital Washington – Antoine Fuqua returns to direct, as does writer Richard Wenk, and actors Bill Pullman and Melissa Leo.In the films, Washington plays McCall as a tad obsessive-compulsive, but not consistently.The second film takes place sometime later, with McCall now a Lyft driver, selectively helping people he encounters.Few people could pull off this cheesy sainthood like Washington, oozing charisma and self-assured masculinity.The film thus strays far from its roots as a vehicle for McCall to be the avenging angel for a needy stranger.Wenk also has written some juicy dialogue for Washington, including a monologue about individual responsibility he delivers to the young artist in a project stairwell that the actor bites into with obvious relish.
