Ever since Robert McCall turned his back on his dark days as a puppet of the government, he has been wrestling with the demons of his past. But amidst the chaos, a glimmer of hope emerges as he discovers a peculiar comfort in championing the cause of the downtrodden, dispensing justice with a touch of his own unique brilliance.

And with Denzel Washington’s masterful portrayal, McCall’s journey becomes an electrifying dance between redemption and retribution.

In the enchanting embrace of Southern Italy, McCall stumbles upon an unexpected sense of belonging in Equaliser 3. However, fate unveils a sinister truth – his newfound companions are ensnared in the clutches of nefarious crime lords.

As the stakes escalate to a perilous crescendo, he realises his calling: to metamorphose into the unwavering guardian of his friends, fearlessly confronting the formidable mafia.

The trouble for McCall, says Denzel Washington, is that he’s become a little too enamoured by that idea – to his peril: “He has gotten addicted to this so-called ‘justice’ and crossed the line into unnecessary violence.

“He pays a price. And he has to deal with himself, and rely on others, and break out of his patterns, or he will die. Through that, hopefully, he finds peace.”

Antoine Fuqua explores the intricacies of the human condition in his masterpiece, Equaliser 3. With a bold and brilliant approach, he sets out on a quest to unravel the mystery surrounding a man on the brink of self-discovery.

“What I wanted to explore was a man on the verge. McCall is on the verge of a question – what else does he have to live for? His wife is gone; Susan Plummer (Melissa Leo) is gone. It seems like he does the right thing, but he is constantly punished. And so, I think he is on the verge, and he has to think about what he is going to do with his life.”

Get ready for the ultimate showdown as Equalizer 3: The Final Chapter bursts onto the silver screen, starring the legendary Denzel Washington, the captivating Dakota Fanning, and the formidable David Denman. Brace yourself for an electrifying cinematic experience as this action-packed thriller hits theatres nationwide on 1 September.
