The Accountant star a one Batman, aka Ben Affleck as a man who overcomes what people would consider disabilities in life, by using his mind as his main and real weapon. The movie follows his life as it slowly unveils and uncoils it’s narrative using a combination of flash backs, and the addition of a side story that does handle some of the exposition here. There is a lot to like about this movie, and that has almost 100% to do with Ben Affleck’s acting, and his ability to portray this character in a way that makes him seem real and believable. The supporting cast here can be hit or miss, as some of the side characters do well to add to his portrayal, while others seem more or less irrelevant to the plot. And the plot itself here does maybe rely a bit too much on certain exposition, but it also seems deep enough to warrant a sequel. The action in this movie is very well done, and it makes great use of sound design in the way the combat sounds as high caliber rounds have a wonderfully distinct sound to them when compared to smalls arms fire. The only thing really holding this movie back, is what I’d call a pointless sub plot on the part of the treasury department, which was like coming up for air when all you want is to go deeper. All in all The Accountant is a really solid action movie, with a deep and intriguing plot with some characters who deserve a second outing.
