Now I really enjoyed the two films but this is not going to get my mouse finger itching.

I agree, I thought Denzel had an interesting understated take on it.

I'll probably watch this one to see what it's like, but not got high hopes...and they called her character Robyn McCall rather than Roberta...

See I loved the original series, and when I saw the Denzel movies, all I could think was that they went the John Wick route, which was not The Equalizer at all to my mind.

Now I know why they go for the 'remake' route, but couldn't they just make an original series starting from a similar premise instead and call it something else. Ex company operative helping people in need, a premise that gave us the Equalizer and MacGuyver, and you can't call one a remake of the other now can you?

I think really you don't want them to remake the original, which is fine! It's not for you, you already got your The Equalizer.

Edward Woodward will always be my Equalizer too, but then that's because we totally accepted a slightly overweight English white man as a former CIA agent. 😬

Exactly, he could kick more arse with a baleful glance and a harsh word than any gun toting Kung fu black belt. 😋

Looking back, I'm not sure if his style of leaning his head back and looking down on everyone was acting or trying not to fall over forward.

Edward Woodward was fine but playing Callan he did it better.
