There are numerous astute movies about a mental imbalance. The Accountant, which features Ben Affleck whose services reach out to murdering, is not part of them. To anticipate that this would be anything other than exploitive of autism would resemble hoping or expecting visually impaired Daredevil of Affleck may prompt more extensive comprehension of visual deficiency or his Batman may elucidate the miserable being of orphans.

The Accountant is essentially an Asperger’s Syndrome superhero film camouflaged as a crime story. The Accountant is incredible fun and its concern of Affleck’s purposely wooden performance, frequently seriously hilarious. Furthermore, it’s a unique movie. Despite the fact that it in the long run wastes its fascinating promises of a math expert, underworld bookkeeper who is a sociopathic killer also.


Taste is the only thing that is not really on show in this movie called The Accountant. Every other thing you would anticipate from a middlebrow, vigilante thriller which is featuring Ben Affleck and directed by Gavin O’Connor is on show, totted up and audited, and itemized.   Having tempted with a couple bewildering plotlines, it conveys a few data dumps of plot clarification towards the end. What’s more, having begun feeling crisp, The Accountant returns to seen it before hitman thriller.

Still, this Henchman Vs Rain Man is unquestionably more energizing than Superman Vs Batman. In addition, Affleck is a lot better in this also, as Christian Wolff he gets the chance to play a touch of both Clark Kent (nerd in glasses with dual life) and also Bruce Wayne (agonizing rich guy scarred by parental disaster).


Wolff’s way to getting to be noticeably deadly accountant, we learn in a few strong flashbacks, included a not so caring brother, a tough love father, a never present mother and a jail cellmate coach in criminal world bookkeeping practice (Jeffrey Tambor, creating Arrested Development flashbacks).

Christian works and lives alone, aside from a secretive personal assistant who is only ever heard on the telephone. He has become rich through his work. Amongst the non liquid assets he has put away together with artworks by Renoir and Pollock, is a unique Superman comic. It may not be the proper match for an inside joke, however, it is fitting in light of the fact that the movie itself has a feeling of a comic book adjustment.

It’s definitely not. In spite of the fact that the script by The Judge (Bill Dubuque) was transformed into a realistic novel a year ago to help launch the movie to the Comic Con audience. On screen, there is something exceptionally speech bubble about the exchange. Particularly among the supporting casts who get enormous back stories such as the head Treasury Agent, played by JK Simmons, who is assisted by a capable junior to discover the genuine personality of the obscure Accountant.

In the mean time, Christian has enjoyed a reprieve from uncooking the books of weapon dealers and drug cartels, and he has taken a legitimate task at Living Robotics, a company managed by John Lithgow, a brilliant technology business visionary and having siphoned millions from it, the disparity found out by junior financial executive Dana (Anna Kendrick, charming, once more).

As Christian uses his time attempting to discover the fraud, covering glass and whiteboards or the organization’s meeting room with his calculations (as maths is always done in films), Dana attempts to crack his face.

However, the sprouting romance is broken up when Christian discovered both the assassin hired by a discontented customer and the authorities are after him, placing Dana in risk as well. By this time, Affleck’s character has changed from merciless hoodlum to gawky great person and we are en route, by means of increasing body count, to a groan worthy finale.


Although, The Accountant’s ending is somehow confusing. However, being a thriller movie with pretensions to cleverness, it gets the work done still. There are a lot of amusing moments, some extraordinary set pieces and the connection between Affleck and Kendrick is fun and reviving.

You are never really certain of the sort of movie you are watching- sometimes it is funny, other times it is cruelly violent. However, it is quite entertaining in generally.
