The theory about Denzel Washington in action movies (or pretty much any movie) is that he plays the tragic hero, a flawed individual looking to right wrongs and chase his own personal demons through his own moral code. That theory is true to form with The Equalizer, the new film which re-teams Washington with Training Day director Antoine Fuqua.

Once more playing a disturbed man with a special set of skills (faked his death!), Washington first embraces a prostitute played by Chloë Grace-Morentz who gets caught in the underworld of Russian mobsters. It doesn’t take long before Washington puts his paper down, reads the thugs their rites before putting them down in less than 30 seconds. The main quote to take away from Washington and his book reading when he’s playing a B-level Creasy from Man On Fire? “It is about a guy who is a knight in shining armor, except he lives in a world where knights don’t exist anymore.” Watch the trailer below.

    I’d personally also like to say that most of those that find themselves with no health insurance are usually students, self-employed and those that are unemployed. More than half from the uninsured are under the age of 35. They do not really feel they are needing health insurance simply because they’re young and also healthy. Their particular income is frequently spent on housing, food, plus entertainment. Some people that do go to work either full or in their free time are not made available insurance by means of their jobs so they proceed without because of the rising valuation on health insurance in the states. Thanks for the strategies you discuss through this web site.
