Notes on "The Accountant" starring Ben Affleck

Image result for the accountant

The film is currently under embargo and, like all embargoed films, I can only be vague and abstract about my feelings for the film (which I caught this afternoon). A full review will have to come at a later date, most probably around its October 14th release date, but think of this as Affleck's action star movie, quite similar to Liam Neeson in "Taken" or Keanu Reeves in "John Wick." Affleck's film is really just an old-fashioned action movie with not much on its mind, but to entertain.

"Christian Wolff is a math savante 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."
