It's a workman's movie. It knows why you're here (to see Denzel killing people) and that you don't care about the simplistic main plot or the random side plot.

The Equalizer 2 is a perfect example of how Antoine Fuqua is king of the "B Movie". This isn't a knock against him as there need to be more quality B movie action films. To me a B Movie is a film that is good enough to keep your attention for 1 or 2 viewings but you eventually forget about it. While you watch it, you enjoy it but soon after, you've forgotten it. That explains The Equalizer 2. It knows that audiences are just here to see Denzel kicking ass and that as long as they get that, they won't care about the weak main story or uninteresting side plots. 

I'll take more Equalizer 2 movies over things like The Commuter and ever other Liam Neeson film where he phones it in for 99.9% of the film.
