The Accountant
A math savant with more affinity for numbers than people, has some important clients. Hiding under the cover of a small-town CPA office, he works as a freelance accountant for some of the world’s most dangerous criminal organizations. With the Treasury Department’s Crime Enforcement Division starting to close in, he takes on a legitimate client: a state-of-the-art robotics company where an accounting clerk has discovered a discrepancy involving millions of dollars. But as he uncooks the books and gets closer to the truth, it is the body count that starts to rise. This film appears to appeal more to the masses than the critics.

ScreenIt
Jim Judy quote iconOverall, I found the offering far better and more engaging than I was anticipating, with solid work from all involved making this an unusual entry in the canon of Hollywood action flicks. And one that might make you view the person who does your taxes and financial work in a different light.
