A solid follow-up to "The Equalizer" and an effectively understated entry into the 2018 summer movie sweepstakes.
The first movie does a better job of everything this one does rendering the second installment redundant – painless but purposeless.
The idiotic ending doesn’t redeem the uneven middle portion. The film's biggest problem is identified by the title.

A simple story with lots of visual pizzazz and little in the way of complexity or intelligence is a great way to lure viewers of all nationalities into theaters.
Despite drawbacks related to the casting of Keanu Reeves, "Siberia" is well-paced, offers instances of tension, and doesn’t cheat at the end.
Although the production is too long and overreaches, it has a bizarre, crazy appeal that’s difficult to shrug off.
This superficial and lightweight approach might make for adequate TV viewing but it functions more as a clumsy tease than a satisfying motion picture.
An unconventional thriller that combines claustrophobic elements such as those found in submarine movies with the isolation aspects of productions like "Cast Away."
Plodding, repetitive, replete with technobabble nonsense and lifeless action, this is easily the worst-written of any of the 20 to-date MCU offerings.
