Power Rangers (2017)

Saban's Power Rangers, unlike it's litany of TV incarnations, is a reboot of the original series. It updates the story of how the original 5 rangers: Jason (Dacre Montgomery), Kimberly (Naomi Scott), Billy (RJ Cyler), Zack (Ludi Lin) and Trini (Becky G.);  become the teenage super heroes that we all know. 7557

The Equalizer

The Equalizer is a film festival re-imagining of a 1980's TV show. Reuniting Denzel Washington with his Training Day director, Antoine Fuqua, the movie tells the story of a retired covert agent turned problem solver. The movie is pretty entertaining, but it's definitely not what you want to see if you're expecting to see something with a lot of action. It's a decent suspense/thriller with a lot of violence and little action (by comparison). Washington and Csokas make a great team on screen and Moretz is good as the catalyst for McCall's decent back into his world of violence. All in all, it's a good movie to see if you want to catch an edgier spy thriller or if you're fan of watching Denzel in his Man on Fire style roles. 1321
