The Equalizer adaptation marks the first time director Antoine Fuqua and Denzel Washington have worked together since 2001's Training Day. Considering that movie ended up garnering Washington his first Best Actor Oscar (he previously earned Best Supporting Actor gold for 1989's Glory) , expectations are high for this reunion.
AskMen's Radheyan Simonpillai sat down with the duo to discuss how they went about creating a unique fighting style for Washington's Robert McCall character - a man with a mysterious past who becomes hellbent on revenge against the Russian mob.
The Equalizer opens on September 26, 2014.

one day I was re-watching "Philadelphia" and I thought...wow...denzel was so good in that...I began watching all denzel Washington movies....does a lot of movies...but he's seems so dedicated and equalizer was great but "man on fire" what a movie.....I'm a denzel fan.......of course......I'm a tom cruise fan as well and I'm having a hard time waiting for mission 6...
I can't believe he had training for this movie when most of the action is simulated through a rapid series of cuts. It didn't look as bad as the Taken movies, but it definitely was not anywhere on the same level as the action scenes in a good movie, such as Collateral.
I'm just saying that my father was U.S. army special forces and works at Lowe's haha... this film has a special place in my heart when it comes to those willing to protect what they love... and to those hidden warriors out there.
Robert: High functioning depression and a strong dose of OCD = an intriguing character. Plus, Antoine Fuqua is a fantastic director. Credits include Tears of the Sun, Shooter, King Arthur, and Equalizer II, which is in post-production. :)
Fight sequence is FMA. This martial art was not learned by any US force during Vietnam, jungle warfare quote. Even to this date, I know many Seals that don’t know this art. Marines have been training in this style though.
The part like where he opens the assesses the situation and says 16 seconds because he has seen what needs to be done and exactly how long it will take to complete ( Task ) I thought was really twinkly and rediculous and it made me see things from then on as sooo stupid and phony it kinda ruined the seriousness for me for the rest of the movie. I also want to state that I am huge Denzal Washington fan and I still am I just wish they wouldn't have done that.
one of the best movies I've seen ever seen because it is so believable, Denzel could be amongst any of us anywhere in the world without us knowing until someone pisses him off, then kiss your ass goodbye
On the gun disarm, beyond the specifics from a dojo, I believe it's about speed, accuracy and presence of mind.... and of course, proximity to the gun. On a good line up of circumstances, I'd divert the holding hand and crush the assailants throat in one move and less than a second... Then for the remaining half second I'd finish breaking the elbow while taking away the gun from a limp hand. That's one way of doing it no matter how the gun is held. I'm a karate purple belt by the way and here's just my opinion.
And thats why I didnt understand when SJWs were loud about BLACK JAMES BOND.. Instead of demanding another brand of action movies.. written, directed and acted by an equivalent of a James Bond.. only in that the actor would be a black operative..! This movie has shown that black Hollywood movie makers ARE as capable as anybody else.. cries of racism was for nothing.. BUT the SJWs were in trances over racism claims.. instead of demanding job creation.. ! Lol..!
something caught me in the interview that the director said basically, the bad guy thought, denzel the character was kind out of his depth. the problem is the bad guys were the one inside denzel jungle and out of their depth. It's like you think you're going into someone house and taking over, but no, it's his house and you're dead. :p
The whole style of this movie was done first in a movie by Jean Claude Van Dame, called 6 Bullets. Way better done than this movie. They copied a lot of the film technique and fight sequence from that movie too. Story line is different but really I felt I was watching a poorer done version of Six Bullets. I find Fugua very derivative of other directors. The JCVD movie was done several years before this one.
you two are misunderstanding Zoltan Csikos' comment. his attention is on the fictional character 100%. use context clues to know what he means in his profile picture, his statements regarding 'warrior' and 'guerilla warfare', and his contempt for the music and the production of the trailer. he believes the character is absolutely silly and disgraceful in relations to trained soldiers in special operations, or similar, and the combat scenarios that are portrayed in this film. i agree with him wholeheartedly, this movie is cheesy and silly, said twice. a movie like this ought to cater to reality and suspense, a movie doesnt have to he silly and cheesy, said thrwice, in order to be an entertaining film for all to see.
Maybe Denzel Washington did use Navy SEALs to teach him that stuff for The Equalizer movie but also he is being trained in the martial arts by Dan Inosanto and his students and has been taking lessons from them for a good number of years
he means the stunt men didn't know the type of guy they were working with (denzel) already knew some of the things they were teaching him so he learned so quickly and when he says guerilla warfare he mean brutal up close fighting that denzel was taught but it actually isnt guerilla warfare .... the fighting style used in the movie was arnis and kali which denzel was trained in for years when he was filming the book of eli so the director was not exactly explaining it the right way but basically he meant the stunt guys thought they were trapping denzel in a area of skills he was not used to but he learned so quickly and observed with the skills he already knew also alongside his boxing history
I made no inference whatsoever to male genitalia...what are you doing hanging around Broke Back mountain dude?...you tryin to come out? "You guys" can express yourselves now out in public due to ongoing immorality and don't ask don't tell...
