The Equalizer (IMAX)

Everyone deserves justice.

The Equalizer (IMAX)
This week's big release seems to have found more support amongst the people than the critics. A former black ops commando faked his death to live a quiet life in Boston. When he comes out of his self-imposed retirement to rescue a young girl, he finds himself face to face with ultra-violent Russian gangsters. As he serves vengeance against those who prey on the helpless, his desire for justice is reawakened. If someone has a problem, the odds are stacked against them, and they have nowhere else to turn, he will help. He is The Equalizer. This film is releasing in normal and IMAX versions, this is the IMAX version.
