The Accountant Movie Review
At the beginning of the movie, Ray King (JK Simmons) asks the question “Do you like puzzles, Marybeth Medina?” That is the theme for the entire movie. Not only does the plot keep you twisting and turning, the genre does as well. Is it an action pic? Is it a suspense thriller? Is it vigilante film? Is it a buddy comedy? The answer is YES! To all of those questions. There is no puzzle about seeing this movie. Go see it! It is fantastic.
Ben Affleck plays Christian Wolff, a mild mannered accountant who is on the Autism Spectrum. Wolf is hired to look into the books of a robotics company owned by Lamar Black (John Lithgow). He meets the accountant that discovered the financial discrepancy for the company, Dana Cummings (Anna Kendrick). Christian and Dana form an unlikely friendship and get to the bottom of the monetary irregularities. Because Wolff may not be what he appears to be, Ray King and Marybeth Medina (Cynthia Addai-Robinson) of the Treasury Department pursue him all the while for suspected shady practices. By the end of the movie, everyone will have their answers and their puzzles will be solved.
Is the Accountant appropriate for kids?
I cannot stress enough that this an R rated movie. Do not bring children. The violence is intense. My viewing companions were two young men in their 20’s. While I was bowing my head down during the extreme scenes, I noticed them flinching as well. When 2 guys that play video games and love horror movies cringe, you know that this film is not made for everyone.

I hadn’t heard of this movie prior to reading this. It sounds like it might be a good choice for a guy’s night out from your description.

I really liked it.
I’ve watched this movie at least ten times (my wife thinks I’m nuts – but she thought that before the movie was released) . . . every time, something else jumps out. Cult movie for sure.
