The Accountant

Action Crime Drama


 

A high functioning autistic forensic accountant uncovers a money leak in a high profile robotics firm and finds himself the target of a team of hitmen when his findings are exposed.

"The Accountant" is an unassuming and intriguing action film that breathes new life into an often tired genre with the addition of an autistic character as our leading man. Spots of well placed humour help break up the heavy storyline, and the exceedingly well choreographed action sequences are a definite highlight. While probably not clinically correct, there is beauty in the simplicity and predictability of this film that is a little long winded, but enjoyable nonetheless. The numbers add up.
