About this movie

Christian Wolff (Ben Affleck) is a math savant with more affinity for numbers than people. Behind 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, run by Ray King (J.K. Simmons), starting to close in, Christian takes on a legitimate client: a state-of-the-art robotics company where an accounting clerk (Anna Kendrick) has discovered a discrepancy involving millions of dollars. But as Christian uncooks the books and gets closer to the truth, it is the body count that starts to rise.

0/10 If I could leave no stars I would. If you are on the autism spectrum, or you love someone on the autism spectrum, this is NOT the movie for you. It's Rain Man with; guns, a normal passing protagonist, a "twist" you can see coming a mile away, lame fights we all have seen before(and seen done better) and according to this movie you can beat the autism out of your kid. The child abuse plays a big part in this movie, and of course it's portrayed as "good" for the children.

Don't pay attention to the critics, this movie was excellent. A dedicated performance by Affleck (he's really starting to grow on me, so glad to see he's getting better with age) and a great supporting cast, especially JK Simmons. The story has some surprising twists, good character development, and plenty of action. I've seen it twice already and enjoyed it each time. Well worth the rental charge and even the purchase price. Definitely gave it a solid 5 stars.

Anybody that may say this isn't a good movie, either just doesn't like Affleck or thinks too highly of themselves. This is a Great movie with some very cool and unexpected surprises. After reading some reviews here I almost didn't get it, but i'm glad I did cause this is excellent. Ignore anything negative cause its simply not true. Great Flick 5-Stars
