Have you ever watched a movie, TV show or music video that featured Lyft or Uber logos? Maybe someone was actually “working” as a driver. We wanted to know how realistic these portrayals are and if there are takeaways for drivers, so we had senior RSG contributor Will Preston break down one of the latest movies to prominently feature rideshare driving, the movie The Equalizer 2 starring Denzel Washington.
In the recently released movie, The Equalizer 2, Denzel Washington plays a horrible Lyft driver who somehow gets repeat business. I wanted to better understand this dichotomy, so I decided to look at his dashcam footage. After all, it’s Denzel Washington, he’s getting repeat business as a driver – he must be doing something right, right?
In case you haven’t heard of The Equalizer 2, its plot summary from Google is:
“If you have a problem and there is nowhere else to turn, the mysterious and elusive Robert McCall will deliver the vigilante justice you seek. This time, however, McCall’s past cuts especially close to home when thugs kill Susan Plummer — his best friend and former colleague. Now out for revenge, McCall must take on a crew of highly trained assassins who’ll stop at nothing to destroy him.”
