THE EQUALIZER is a US action feature about a former 'black ops' commander who comes out of retirement to save a young prostitute from some Russian gangsters.

Violence

Strong bloody violence includes several action sequences in which the hero kills gangsters. He sometimes uses improvised weapons, for example stabbing a man under the chin with a corkscrew and slamming a shot glass into another man's eye. These sequences are very rapid, with the focus on the hero's skill and ability to think quickly. Other violence includes people being shot, stabbed and repeatedly punched, with brief but bloody images of the bodies afterwards.

Sex

Strong verbal sex references, and references to prostitution.

Language

Frequent strong language, including 'f**k' and 'motherf**ker'.
