‘The Accountant’

unnamedIt’ll hardly stay with you post-viewing but director Gavin O’Connor (Warrior, Tumbleweeds) provides an entertaining yet frustrating action crime drama.

Ben Affleck (Gone Girl, The Town) is an Asperger maths genius. But with precision military childhood training courtesy of his sadistic father, he can balance more than just the books.   He’s an accountant in demand – legit or otherwise. For more than half the film, cutting between childhood and precise behavioural patterns as an adult makes for a fascinating and, at times, amusing narrative. Sadly, intent on revenge and justice, The Accountant abandons its central premise for its predictable shoot-em up finale.

    Pretty weird, but it still worked for me. Nice review.
