The Equalizer is solid
5 second plot: Bob is an average Joe living a good simple life. One day he decides to help a young girl in trouble. She's being exploited by the Russian mafia. But if he wants to save the girl, he's going to have to think big.
5 second review: The story jumps all over the place to avoid falling in plot holes and to keep the action going at high speed, but that's actually still okay, because the (sometimes very violent) action is solid, the indestructible hero is awesome and the super villain is really cool. It's even got a mega cool explosion-while-walking-away-like-nothing's-up scene!
