THE EQUALIZER is a US action feature in which a former 'black ops' commander 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. Other violence includes people being shot, stabbed and repeatedly punched, with brief but bloody images of the bodies afterwards.

There are strong verbal sex references, and references to prostitution. There is strong language throughout, including 'f**k' and 'motherf**ker'.
