[A]n overlong, meandering, and downright ridiculous mess.

The film manages to torpedo the autistic community in stultifying fashion, envisioning itself as woke pop culture escapism when it really traffics in the same insulting stereotypical sticks and stones that have long been thrown.

The movie could have been a lot more entertaining had the filmmakers focused on fewer threads and settled on a more consistent tone.

Full of jarring tone shifts and subplots that bury the film's initial promise.

The intrigue is thrown out the window for a "guy keeps the girl safe" plotline that belongs in a 1995 Jean Claude Van Damme movie.

I can honestly barely be bothered to remember what the point of the present-day part of the story even was.

The question left is whether or not genre films can handle the topic of autism in manner that doesn't come across as crassly exploitative. At present, I'm inclined to say no.

If Batman, Daredevil and Jason Bourne had a baby who loved calculus, you'd have The Accountant. Think of this one as more of a write-off.

This indication that the filmmakers don't know the difference between realism and boredom doesn't inspire confidence. The movie gets more interesting from there, but it never gets more credible.

"The Accountant" just becomes a dull shoot 'em up movie, complete with acrobatic stunts and guys dressed in black hiding behind things.

The Accountant wants to have it all - to be a thriller, a romance, an action movie, a twisty crime drama - only to end up unconvincing on all counts.

The hero is autistic, a wizard at math, an expert at martial arts and an 
ultra-skilled sniper who is leading a double life. But all this is not enough 
to make The Accountant a film worth seeing.

The question "Do you like puzzles"often get asked a lot in The Accountant... well this movie is one overly elaborate puzzle where none of the pieces fit together.

The Accountant is messier than its multitude of gunshot wounds to the head.

Descends to the level of a Marvel comic.

Math-Man Begins includes an ACCOUNTING MONTAGE and gets progressively stupider as it goes along, which means by the end you're pressed to hold back howling laughter.

Whatever numbers game The Accountant is playing, it doesn't add up.

If it's free and you're hungover on a Sunday morning someday when this is streaming, go for it. But otherwise, save your Fandango dollars for a movie that makes more sense.

The Accountant is one of those movies in which a lot seems to be going on, but not much actually happens, aside from some bombastic action sequences designed to show us how amazing Affleck is.

It leaves so many plot holes and loose ends flailing about I wonder if the hope is to turn this into a franchise? It definitely seems to set itself up for a sequel no one will want to see.
