The most interesting thing about The Equalizer, the unwanted big-screen reboot of the Edward Woodward starring 80’s TV series, is purely a coincidence.

This fits because the implements of destruction include barbed wire, a power drill, a book (hardcover, of course), a nail gun, and even a corkscrew. 473 more words
