What to Expect From ‘The Equalizer III’?
For the final chapter, director Antoine Fuqua takes us to Italy, where Robert is trying to find peace and quiet. He befriends a mother-daughter duo who are soon threatened by the local mafia.

So, viewers can expect to see the franchise’s signature action, and thrill unfold on screen as the former DIA officer imposes his own brand of justice.
