The Accountant: John Wick Plus Rain Man Equals One Sharp Action Thriller [Review]

The Accountant: John Wick Plus Rain Man Equals One Sharp Action Thriller [Review]

Within minutes of the movie’s opening, it’s pretty clear that director Gavin O’Connor (Warrior) and screenwriter Bill Dubuque are set on putting a new spin on the term “ultimate weapon.” Sure, we’ve seen the “ultimate weapon” (deemed hero, villain, or vigilante) use his brains and muscles to maneuver through any situation. But this time, it’s different. A skilled mathematician in the field of accounting who also moonlights as a trained killer, Ben Affleck’s (The Town) Christian Wolff also battles autism. A plot centered on Christian Wolff’s current path to uncovering the truth combined with bang-up action to piece together his dogged past adds up (yes, pun-intended) to a sharp action thriller that is indulging from start to finish.

I chose Kung Fu Panda over The Finest Hours not because I thought it would be better or worse but merely because it was 22 minutes shorter.   And after all, I’d just seen one terrible kid’s show – I could sit through this.  Imagine my surprise when Kung Fu Panda turned out to be outstanding.
