THE EQUALIZER 2 is a US action drama in which a former black ops agent seeks revenge for the murder of an old friend.

Violence

There are several scenes of strong violence involving the use of fists, guns and knives. There is occasional blood and bone-breaking in these fights. The hero gouges an enemy's eye, and a man is seen with a graphic stomach injury following an explosion. It is also implied that an assassin forces a man to shoot himself in the head.

A killer holds a family captive in their home before murdering them, and it is implied that he kills their child. The hero seeks vengeance after, it is implied, a woman has been raped and beaten. No sexual violence is shown.

There is use of strong language ('f**k'), as well as milder terms such as 'bitch' and 'God'. Black characters use the term 'nigga'. There is misuse of heroin and cocaine.

This film was originally seen for advice at which stage the company was informed it was likely to be classified 18 uncut but that their preferred 15 classification could be achieved by making reductions to scenes of strong violence and gore. When the film was submitted for formal classification these scenes had been acceptably reduced.
