"my new #1 movie"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

My new #1 movie. Originally wasn't sure as Ben is often stiff in his roles and I thought Anna wouldn't shake her twilight fame. WRONG. … this movie was awesome. Each time I watch it I pick up another clue.

"SUPERB! AND IF YOU ARE "DIFFERENT", YOU WILL LOVE IT EVEN MORE!"
5 stars"

SUPERB! AND IF YOU ARE “DIFFERENT”, YOU WILL LOVE IT EVEN MORE!

I am a huge fan of the action genre and enjoyed enormously the action-packed second half of the film, but The Accountant is much more than that. The story is absolutely amazing. It should touch everyone who appreciates intelligent writing and although revolving around the challenges autistic people experience to adapt to the world, it should uplift the spirits of everyone who is “different”, and struggles to be accepted!

Christian Wolff is a man with high-functioning autism. One of the characteristics of HFA is the exceptionally high IQ. Individuals with HFA often have difficulties in areas of communication, expression, and social interaction. That is the case with Chris. His father, a military psychologist, afraid that his autistic son may be taken advantage of, decides to prepare him for the world by putting him through strenuous military style, martial arts training and exposing him to everything which Chris has difficulties coping with.

Though and at times flawed fatherly love but gives results and Christian becomes independent, self-sufficient man. He decides to put in good use his extraordinary capabilities in math and begins to work as forensic accountant for some of the scariest people on earth – cartel, mafia bosses, e.t.c. The big money he earns, he donates to support Harbor Neuroscience Institute in New Hampshire, research facility dedicated to Autism. How he gets out alive after uncooking the books of his criminal clientele and how he escapes CIA hunt for him, I won't give away. You will see in the film.

A subtle and poignant romantic subplot is expertly interwoven in the plot. When Chris is hired by Living Robotics corporation to audit their books, he falls for Dana Cummings, the in-house accountant who has discovered suspicious financial discrepancies. Chris quickly finds that substantial amount of funds is missing due to embezzlement. From that point an impressive body count begins, which leads to the climax with triumphant showdown.

Ben Affleck is tremendous as the autistic Christian. He builds his character to perfection. Anna Kendrick is lovely as Dana and a nice surprise is child-actor Seth Lee, who plays young Chris.

The soundtrack is mesmerizing. I can listen to it all day long and will not get bored for a second.

The Accountant is simply superb film and I recommend it without hesitation.

Description

The Accountant

Christian Wolff (Ben Affleck) 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 (J.K. Simmons), starting to close in, Christian takes on a legitimate client: a state-of-the-art robotics company where an accounting clerk (Anna Kendrick) 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.

The Accountant Reviews

The Accountant, which stars Mr. Affleck as a math savant/marksman/mar­tial artist who uncooks books and kicks backsides, is an effective and even affecting pop thriller.” – Wall Street Journal

“Watching Ben Affleck's Christian Wolff make numbers do his bidding as he grapples with a world he isn't completely at home in … is so entertaining it's hard not to wonder if Warner Bros. has a sequel in the works. Wouldn't be a bad idea.” – L.A Times

“Taken on its own, "The Accountant” works its way from a state of enjoyable popcorn suspense to a pitch of absolutely preposterous – but still pretty enjoyable – nonsense." – Boston Globe
