The Accountant

The Accountant

Premise: A Mathematician who is also a Savant and Brutal Enforcer finds himself at odds with trying to maintain his structured lifestyle and saving the life of a coworker.  A new client puts him in the cross hairs of the mob and past history with the Treasury Department comes to light.

Review: The intense and intricately woven plot was the driving force behind this movie.  It is certainly a very good action thriller with Ben Affleck surprising in dueling roles as both Hitman and autistic savant. I found myself going through a gamut of emotions as there are several funny or touching scenes paired with the intense action sequences.  I genuinely liked this movie and the plots many twists and turns kept me involved for the two hours.  Pay special attention to the very last minute of the movie for the biggest twist which rounded out the movie perfectly.  

Ratings: One and a Half Glasses of Wine (Really Liked this Movie)

Pair with: A GSM for an intense red blend of Grenach, Syrah and Mourvedre 

Director: Gavin O'Conner
