Plot Outline:

A small-town CPA who is a savant with numbers, but not so good with people, uses his skills to covertly work as a freelance accountant for some of the world's most dangerous criminal organizations. But as the Treasury Department's Criminal Division closes in, he takes on a legitimate client in the form of a robotics company where a discrepancy turns up costing the company millions. Yet the closer he gets to the truth of the matter, the more bodies start to pile up. -- Chris Kavan

I can't be the only one who thinks Ben Affleck looks like James Rolfe (Angry Video Game Nerd) in this.

Batman vs Punisher? Nuff said. Sign me up!

The Accountant is an entertaining if overstuffed thriller with a good cast and a commitment to its premise focused on an unassuming forensics accountant who is actually a fixer for the criminal underworld. Given his double life, he is efficient at using guns and his fists. On top of that, Christian Wolff (Affleck) is a high functioning autistic.
That is enough for a complete three act story in of itself. But the movie is more ambitious than that. It piles on a conspiracy subplot of corporate intrigue, an odd couple romance, and a third one where two FBI agents provide essential exposition to the audience. At times, that is overwhelming and it is a lot to take in.
Ben Affleck is great as the stoic type and his moments with Anna Kendrick are light and amusing. There is supporting assist...
