Preview, Denzel kicks more butt, takes more names in “Equalizer 2”

Sure, it’s the Liam Neeson keep-yourself-relevant role model, take on vengeful wise-old-men-of-action films in your 60s.

I’ve gotten over any sense that these are “beneath” the often fine actors who make these movies. Especially after “Roman J. Israel, Esq.” Denzel got a nomination out of a dog, there, but his options are narrowing. As are those of many of his esteemed contemporaries.

Here, Melissa Leo plays the object of his quest for revenge. Nobody else in the cast is a “name.” Not even Pedro Pascal. July 20 is when we see “EQ2.”
