The Treasury Department is looking into a mysterious man called ”the Accountant” (Ben Affleck) who was responsible for murdering several mobsters; at the same time, he’s hired to audit a robotics firm… An odd idea for an action-thriller, although it does begin to vaguely resemble a Batman story in disguise as it moves along. There are a few clever touches in this movie, which reveals ”the Accountant’s” dark past piece by piece. A little confusing at first, and overall far from convincing, but surprisingly engaging nonetheless. Affleck is fun to watch as the autistic hit man who’s learned to control his affliction.
