"The Accountant" isn't much of a movie, but Ben Affleck plays a compelling character that his presence is made though out the movie. He plays Christian Wolfe a Mathematics savant who suffers from Artism when he was a child and as an adult he never got over it, but made a life of himself as an accountant and as a hitman. In other movies you can't get away with a plot like that, but in this movie there's a exception to the rule. Affleck's character is the hart of the movie. His character can surprise you at every turn. Anna Kendrick plays his love interest who never had a romantic moment in the movie and that's good because this movuie is forcus on character study and he's the film's biggest stand out. "the Accountant" is the smartest thing going right now.

Intrigue is had not only in the immediate mission Chris Wolfe is seeking to complete but the flashbacks are critical to fill in the gaps. Unfortunately I found some of the transitions to be a bit jolting, not knowing if my attention needed to be focused on the back story or on the current story being told.
Autism and Asburge's Syndrome seemed to be treated somewhat flippantly. It felt like a convenient element to add rather than a true sympathetic understanding or insightful perspective.
Compelled as I was to rewatch "Momento", I will want to watch this film again to capture the relationship Chris had with his family when he was a child.

An intriguing and intense movie, driven by compelling characters. Ben Affleck is a stand out, giving an honest and raw performance. J.K. Simmons gives a noteworthy performance as well. The story and writing keeps the audience guessing, thinking, and mentally invested, which is one of the best things that film can do to an audience. My biggest complaint about the movie is that I wish Anna Kendrick's character was seen more often. I feel as though her potential was a bit wasted in the film. Aside from that, the film doesn't gloss over any of the subject matter, which just makes for a better story overall.
