Finally installed my Roku and Apple TV devices so I'll be catching up on whatever Netflix has to offer this month...Last night watched the Denzel Washington vehicle, The Equalizer. I understand the sequel is already in production and slated for release in 2017. it's an action packed thriller as Washington, acquaints a Russian waif/prostitute who is abducted and beaten by the Russian mob. His former life as a CIA one man death squad operative enables him to carry out a vendetta against said mobsters. Serious suspension of disbelief is required as the actions of this resourceful Black buzz saw of a vigilante is at times, risible. But overall the story of a Home Depot helper turned James Bondian assassin is a gritty, somewhat grisly albeit not always believable romp through Boston's seedy underbelly. One scene of a Bostonian mob boss getting his face bashed in would be particularly unsettling to the squeamish.
Up for tonight is a Danish thriller from 2009, Headhunter which looks enticing. Any other good Pix on Netflix, let me know as I am new to the service. Thanks!
