Denzel Washington and Antoine Fuqua have captivated audiences with their collaboration on The Equalizer franchise. With two successful films under their belt, the duo is back for the final installment, The Equalizer 3. This time, they aim to give Robert McCall, played by Washington, a fitting conclusion to his journey of seeking justice and finding inner peace.

The Equalizer’s Journey

The Equalizer series began in 2014 with Denzel Washington stepping into the shoes of Robert McCall, a retired intelligence agent with a mysterious past. In a bid to atone for his previous life’s actions, McCall adopts the codename “The Equalizer” and becomes a vigilante for those in need. The first two films depicted his quest to right wrongs and bring justice to those without a voice.

A Peaceful Retreat

As The Equalizer 3 opens, Robert McCall has found a sense of tranquility and contentment in Southern Italy. He yearns to live out his remaining years in quietude, away from the violent world he once inhabited. However, fate has other plans for him. The Mafia’s involvement disrupts his peaceful life, forcing McCall to once again wield his unique set of skills to protect the innocent.

Denzel Washington, who has embodied McCall for nearly a decade, believes it is time for the sun to set on the character’s journey. McCall has found something resembling happiness, and Washington feels that it’s a good place to stop. Reflecting on his unexpected journey with the character, Washington admits that he did not foresee a trilogy when they first embarked on The Equalizer.

Antoine Fuqua shares a similar sentiment, viewing The Equalizer 3 as McCall’s final stand. He believes that, at some point, the working-man hero has to walk away from his vigilantism, leaving room for someone else to serve justice. Fuqua emphasizes the importance of McCall’s quest to find a home and a place in the world, indicating that the character’s story is reaching its natural conclusion.
