If there’s one thing you want when you’re down during the World Cup then it’s an Equalizer. You get it? ….fine, forget it. The Equalizer was a TV drama that ran for four seasons on CBS from 1985. It starred Edward Woodward as a retired secret agent with a dark past who helped people in trouble. It was a bit like the A Team but really violent. The only man who could possibly do justice to Edward Woodward is Denzel Washington and the physical resemblance us uncanny. The film version is directed by Antoine Fuqua who most recently made stupid cheap-looking action movie Olympus Has Fallen a big hit.
The Equalizer is released 26 September 2014
