The Accountant: Movie Review

It is easy to mistake this man as your normal run-of-the-mill accountant, however his crew cut, pocket protector and sensible glasses are just an easy façade; this guy is extremely ruthless. The scene of the jigsaw puzzle is an indicator of a man who likes to complete everything. It also shows the movie as one with a relatively complex nature, which has to be figured out bit by bit.

Flashback scenes dot the movie, fleshing out the plot and characters. The most interesting

Scene showing Wolff and Cummings (Affleck and Kendrick)

relationship involving our bookkeeping assassin involves his father, a military man who used tough love to make him a star. He also taught him and his little brother to fight like in boot-camp. He tells young Christian, “you are different; sooner or later, difference scares people”.

Dana Cummings (Anna Kendrick) never really got scared of Wolff though. She’s the in-house accountant at living robotics, and the whistle blower who came across the crooked numbers. Her findings put her in a terrible situation as she could lose her job, then her life; she had to make Wolff her protector.

The most fascinating aspect of this movie is the violence carried out by Wolff. He takes out his bad guys with some lack of excitement and passion, same as he does while shooting cantaloupes or itemizing deductions. His killings will even make the audience giggle at some point. The body count is outrageous but our guy doesn’t glorify the violence.

The movie features Ben Affleck (Christian Wolff), Anna Kendrick (Dana Cummings), J. K. Simmons (Ray King) and Jon Berthal (Baxter) as star casts.
