Not the most spirited or remarkable Hollywood action director around, but Fuqua made some pretty solid films and didn't direct too many obvious flukes. His oeuvre offers good filler when you're looking for slick, entertaining action films.

A fine sequel. Denzel Washington returns as the good-natured but deadly killer, Fuqua is visibly at ease doing this kind of action work. The action scenes are stylish, the mood is dark enough and the action is on point. 120 minutes is a bit much though and there aren't any standout moments, but it's good filler.
