Even before The Equalizer movie begins, the first thing that would catch your attention is the score of the movie! The composition by Harry Gregson-Williams is sheer brilliance. It somehow reminded me of Jesper Kyd. Sent me back in time. Brilliant notes that wouldn’t let you lose focus even for a second. The Equalizer movie literally breathes on Harry’s brilliance. He uplifts even bleak scenes and makes them super rad. I was swaying even before the flick started.
Direction of The Equalizer movie
Antoine Fuqua‘s direction for The Equalizer movie is breathtaking as well. Every frame has a story to tell and he masters it superbly.
“Your eyes are not sad. They are just lost.”
The Equalizer movie breathes on gore. Super cool scenes of amazing kills, bullet time and Denzel’s sixth sense perception are absolutely thrilling to watch. The screenplay simply trickles down with thoughtful words.
The most badass scene in the movie is when Robert meets Teddy. Time stops by when they have “the conversation”.
If we want an agent or a merc, we want him to be like Robert McCall. Period.
