Robert McCall (Denzel Washington) is a Lufthansa driver and hard-handed do-gooder. He rights wrongs with violence and enjoys helping the helpless and down trodden. So, when a friend gets murdered, it’s logical that he goes on a revenge bender.
– Miles is a good side character. He could go either way in terms of being good or evil but McCall steers him right with typical bluntness.
– The twists and turns are predictable but still fun.
– They spend a fair amount of time on sidestuff that fleshes out his character.
– The bad guys are more that just masked goons.
– The events seem random but things work out. I often wonder where characters like that – McCall, Jack Reacher, etc- get the funds to wreck havoc day and night.
– Content warning: strong language and violence.
If you don’t mind entire lines of dialogue being a string of curses (f-bombs), then you’ll be fine with this movie.
