This article covers a developing story. Continue to check back with us as we will be adding more information as it becomes available.


  • Fuqua and Washington’s collaboration in The Equalizer 3 benefits from their established rapport, resulting in an entertaining movie.
  • The final installment concludes the trilogy and provides a satisfying end to Robert McCall’s character arc, with Washington delivering slick justice.
  • While Washington’s compelling performance carries the film, the story at times lacks depth and fails to fully engage the audience.

The Equalizer 3 reviews are in. Directed once again by Antoine Fuqua, the third and final installment in The Equalizer trilogy finds Denzel Washington’s vigilante Robert McCall retiring to Southern Italy, though he eventually must face off against the Silician Mafia to protect his friends. The Equalizer 3 cast reunites Washington with his Man on Fire co-star Dakota Fanning and also includes David Denman, Sonia Ammar, and Remo Girone in supporting roles.

Today, ahead of The Equalizer 3 release date on September 1, critics started sharing their reviews for the threequel. See a sampling of the reviews below:

Murtada Elfadl, Variety

Reteaming for the fifth time, director Antoine Fuqua and his ‘Training Day’ star leverage the familiarity they’ve established for the audience’s benefit.

Amon Warmann, Empire

A solid conclusion to an unlikely trilogy and a fitting end to Robert McCall’s character arc — with Washington still entertaining as a deliverer of slick justice.

Charles Bramesco, The Guardian

The Oscar-winner returns for more carnage in a rote, violent sequel, this time saving an idyllic Italian seaside town from baddies.

The Equalizer 3 ends the trilogy strong with a style, energy, and cohesiveness that most sequels aren’t capable of. Fuqua and Washington’s circle feels complete and delivers a showstopping dessert at the end of a solid three-course meal they’ve been preparing for almost a decade.

Denzel Washington’s Robert McCall is back for his final mission, but the movie is so fun you’ll hope they keep making more.

Kate Erbland, IndieWire

The third (and final?) film in the action franchise gifts Robert McCall his greatest nemesis yet: the real-deal Camorra mafia.

Emily Garbutt, GamesRadar+

Denzel Washington is compelling in Robert McCall’s swan song, but the story often falls flat.

Nick Schager, The Daily Beast

The Equalizer may be a typical B-movie action series, but the films are elevated by Washington’s signature charisma, charm, and intensity.
