In The Equalizer, Denzel Washington plays a former government op with a particular set of skills. They include dispatching five Russian thugs in less than 20 seconds. Part Taken, part The Professional, The Equalizer is based on the 1980s television series that starred Edward Woodward as a mysterious pro-bono vigilante with a dark past. In Antoine Fuqua’s 21st century update, Washington plays a hero in a world “where knights don’t exist anymore” — so when he sees a young woman (Chloë Grace Moretz) manhandled by pimps, he steps in and metes out justice.

I’m not sure this movie had to be titled The Equalizer, but it looks like fun.

The Equalizer opens in theaters on Sept. 26.

Correction: An earlier version of this post erroneously identified Woodward as his original Equalizer character, Robert McCall.
