a5c7b9f00b As a math savant uncooks the books for a new client, the Treasury Department closes in on his activities, and the body count starts to rise.
Christian Wolff is a math savant with more affinity for numbers than people. Behind the cover of a small-town CPA office, he works as a freelance accountant for some of the world's most dangerous criminal organizations. With the Treasury Department's Crime Enforcement Division, run by Ray King, starting to close in, Christian takes on a legitimate client: a state-of-the-art robotics company where an accounting clerk has discovered a discrepancy involving millions of dollars. But as Christian uncooks the books and gets closer to the truth, it is the body count that starts to rise.
When I first saw the trailer for The Accountant, I didn&#39;t think it looked like an action movie. It looked more like a drama with some action sprinkled in. It had a good leading man in Ben Affleck, a good twist on a protagonist (the character of Christian Wolff has high functioning autism) and an underrated director in Gavin O&#39;Connor who made one of my favourite movies called Warrior. Having seen the movie now, The Accountant is almost equal parts drama and action. Many movies try to achieve that balance but few can nail it. I&#39;m happy to report that The Accountant sticks that landing, there is so much here across the board. I left the theatre not only thoroughly impressed with the movie but actually hoping that we would get to see a sequel with this character. This might not be the most popular movie at the box office right now but I have a feeling that this movie will find its audience.<br/><br/>*Minor Spoilers Ahead* Christian Wolff (Ben Affleck) is no ordinary accountant. His intellect is amazing, he does complicated puzzles in seconds when it would usually take hours. He&#39;s amazing with numbers, so much so he can figure out years worth of accounting books when it would almost be a suicide mission for your average CPA. The catch is that he has a high functioning form of autism. It makes him more susceptible to certain things like bright lights and loud noises. He has difficulty socializing and he can&#39;t handle not being able to finish tasks. He was diagnosed as a child where his dad (Robert C. Trevelier) and his mom took him to a special privately funded school. His mom was in favour of it but his dad felt like he needed a more real-world education and refused. He was trained to defend himself by several teachers (martial arts, marksmanship among others) and resist his weaknesses. Combined with his genius level intellect, it makes him an almost unstoppable covert agent although he isn&#39;t loyal to a government. He takes justice into his own hands.<br/><br/>After helping a nice older couple make it through a tough time, Christian decides to take a freelance contract job for a robotics company. They are led by founder Lamar Black (Jon Lithgow) and they are in need of his skills. They&#39;ve found a 60 million dollar shortfall which was discovered by one of their own in their accounting department Dana Cummings (Anna Kendrick). This would be a daunting task for anyone except Christian who is balancing several things at once. He&#39;s trying to keep his symptoms in check, practising his skills with his weaponry and looking out for the next mark while trying to defend himself from his previous clientele. Add onto this that the head of the U.S. Treasury Department Crime Division Ray King (J.K. Simmons
