Antoine Fuqua is a filmmaker I have always admired and respected, not only for his skill behind the camera, but for the diversity of projects he undertakes. After cutting his teeth by directing a number of iconic music videos in the 1990s, including Coolio's "Gangster's Paradise," Prince's "The Most Beautiful Girl in the World," and Toni Braxton's "Another Sad Love Song," Antoine Fuqua transitioned into features with The Replacement Killers and Bait before his breakout hit Training Day, where he directed Denzel Washington to a Best Actor Oscar.
From there, he took on a number of vastly different films such as the war drama Tears of the Sun, the medieval epic King Arthur, the grounded action-packed adaptation Shooter (which I still think is vastly underrated), the urban crime drama Brooklyn's Finest and last year's big-budget action-thriller Olympus Has Fallen.Read More
After serving as a black ops commando for a number of years, McCall (Denzel Washington) does not fear a group of Russian mobsters in an extended clip from The Equalizer. Justified star David Meunier is featured in this scene as gangster Slavi, who is offered a large sum of money to let a young girl go. When Slavi refuses to accept the deal, McCall springs into action, although he falls quite short of his "15 second" goal for neutralizing these treacherous bad guys.
