Denzel’s Robert McCall is back, now with an additional layer of hair to assist in his unrelenting brutality. His life as a “dead man” is an unfulfilling one. While spending his nights bringing justice to victims has its up-sides, the loss of his wife has still left a gaping hole in his heart. So what could possibly make matters worse? The death of the one person he still holds dear. McCall’s vigilantism has suddenly become personal, and if he doesn’t bring about justice soon, everyone he once worked with could meet an early death.
This main storyline sees Game of Thrones and Kingsman 2 actor Pedro Pascal thrown into the mix, and while it’s beat-you-over-the-head levels of obvious where this is all building towards, his dynamic with Denzel carries the film. The two share some legitimately great moments. You get a strong sense of their past and what this means for the present, all building towards a brutal, if unbelievable finale that’s bat-shit insane, but completely fitting. Pascal’s character lacks any necessary intimidation, but he feels like a living breathing human being, and that should’ve been delved into further.
