The Equalizer

Movie • 2014 • Action  

Report
McCall believes he has put his mysterious past behind him and dedicated himself to beginning a new, quiet life. But when he meets Teri, a young girl under the control of ultra-violent Russian gangsters, he can’t stand idly by – he has to help her. Armed with hidden skills that allow him to serve vengeance against anyone who would brutalize the helpless, McCall comes out of his self-imposed retirement and finds his desire for justice reawakened. If someone has a problem, if the odds are stacked against them, if they have nowhere else to turn, McCall will help. He is The Equalizer.

A lead abused character is referred to as a child and her abuse is important to the story. She seems to be in her late teens.

Someone spits up blood toward the end. He's lying on his back and it is a very quick scene.

All of the cops shown on screen suck but the lead goes on about how they’re meant to uphold certain values, directly implying that if they had been good cops everything would have been fine. He also solicits help from the FBI and other members of the federal government.

One of the lead characters is said to be a “sociopath with a business card”. He is not officially diagnosed as anything but he does play a stereotypical sociopathic role, including being incredibly violent with no remorse.

No fat jokes or outright fat shaming but our lead fat character (there is arguably another, but she is only Hollywood-fat and is truthfully an average size) has a goal of weight loss so he can get a certain job. He is not shamed for it but is made to stop eating certain foods to help him lose the weight (he also works out on screen). Comments to another character about how refined sugar is poison.
