Movie Info

Christian Wolff (Ben Affleck) is a mathematics savant with more affinity for numbers than people. Using a small-town CPA office as a cover, he makes his living as a freelance accountant for dangerous criminal organizations. With a Treasury agent (J.K. Simmons) hot on his heels, Christian takes on a state-of-the-art robotics company as a legitimate client. As Wolff gets closer to the truth about a discrepancy that involves millions of dollars, the body count starts to rise.

Audience Reviews for The Accountant

  • Aug 26, 2017
    The Accountant is bolstered by its intricate character played by Affleck as well as its sophisticated tropes and reveals. While its plot may be a bit too extensive and prolong the film still supplies the drama and efforts of being more than solid. 4/5

    The Accountant is an exciting crime thriller that's full of intrigue. The story follows an accountant named Christian Wolf who's hired by a robotics company to look over their book, but when he discovers that money's being stolen someone attempts to kill him; meanwhile Treasury agents begin searching for him after connecting him to a number of drug cartels and terrorist organizations. Starring Ben Affleck, Anna Kendrick, J.K. Simmons, and Jon Bernthal, the film has an impressive cast that delivers some strong performances. And the fight sequences are incredible intense and action-packed. The writing is also fairly good, creating interesting characters and building an engaging mystery/investigation. Still, some of the characters are a little underdeveloped and the plot has a few weaknesses. Yet overall The Accountant is a solid film that's entertaining and delivers a lot of thrills.

    Pretty solid. Drastically better than the critical reviews have been saying.
