Review

Based on the 80’s t.v show but without the awesome soundtrack Denzel plays Robert McCall who basically helps people who need help and kicks ass.

The movie offers no surprises and is chock full of the usual cliches of the genre but Denzel is always good value. It’s worth a watch but ideally could lose around 30 mins off the run time.

3.0 Stars (3.0 / 5)
