The Accountant (2016) Story: Christian Wolff is a math savant with more affinity for numbers than people. The Accountant 2016 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. The Accountant 2016 With the Treasury Department’s Crime Enforcement Division, run by Ray King, starting to close in, Christian takes on a legitimate client: a state-of-the-art robotics company where an accounting clerk has discovered a discrepancy involving millions of dollars. The Accountant 2016 But as Christian uncooks the books and gets closer to the truth, it is the body count that starts to rise. The Accountant 2016 Written byHappy_Evil_Dude

The Accountant (2016) Synopsis: The film begins with a man walking through a bar with multiple dead bodies on the ground, having been shot in the head. The Accountant 2016 He slowly makes his way upstairs, hearing someone begging for his life. The Accountant 2016 He passes more bodies, making his way to the door of the room where the begging man is. The Accountant 2016 An abrupt sound is heard and the begging stops.

The next scene takes place about 30 years ago (via title card) at a place called the Harbor Neuroscience Institute in New Hampshire. The Accountant 2016 It’s a big, beautiful home in a forested area. The Accountant 2016 Two young boys are sitting in a living room. The Accountant 2016 One is sitting calmly in a chair, and the other unboxes a puzzle and rapidly starts putting it together. The Accountant 2016 The boy with the puzzle is shaking and murmuring to himself. The Accountant 2016 A young girl is also in the room with a caregiver who is trying to put her shoes on. The Accountant 2016 The young girl screams and smacks her own head and is unable to communicate. The Accountant 2016 The boy quickly assembles the puzzle but starts screaming inconsolably when one piece is missing, repeating over and over that he has to finish the puzzle. The Accountant 2016 The young girl has stopped screaming and reaches over to pick up the piece that had fallen under the table and hands it to the young boy, and they look directly at each other. The Accountant 2016 The boy completes the puzzle, revealing that he has assembled it upside down, without seeing the image of Muhammed Ali to guide him.

In the adjacent room, a psychologist is speaking to the parents of the two boys. The Accountant 2016 There is a sign on the refrigerator with simple drawings of six stick figure faces, happy, angry, sad, etc. The Accountant 2016 They discuss the puzzle boy’s sensitivity to bright light and loud noises. The Accountant 2016 He is also stubborn and fixates on things, like wearing only one t-shirt, which the psychologist explains is due to a tactile sensitivity. The Accountant 2016 He is also likely to channel his anxiety into repetitive behaviors like shaking, tapping his fingers and talking to himself. The Accountant 2016 He tells them that the boy will likely always have problem with things like maintaining eye contact or making friends. The Accountant 2016 The mother explains that the father is in the military, which means they move frequently, so the boy hasn’t been able to make friends anyway, leaving his younger brother as the only friend he has. The Accountant 2016 The father seems uninterested in the conversation. The Accountant 2016 The psychologist suggests that they leave the boy at his institute, where they can teach him coping mechanisms and provide a calm, comforting environment that won’t exacerbate his sensitivities. The Accountant 2016 The father says no, telling the psychologist that if the boy is sensitive to light and sound, he needs to be exposed to more light and sound, as the world is not going to accommodate his special needs.

In the present day, Christian Wolff (Ben Affleck) is an accountant in his own, small practice. The Accountant 2016 He has a few small tics, like tapping his fingers on the desk or blowing on them quickly. The Accountant 2016 He has a very flat affect when speaking, and he doesn’t seem very warm or friendly. The Accountant 2016 He is meeting with a farmer and his wife. The Accountant 2016 The farmer is embarrassed that they have fallen on tough times, and his wife gently suggests that they pay their taxes via credit card to buy some more time. The Accountant 2016 She sees Christian seemingly staring at her necklace and asks if he likes it as she made it herself. The Accountant 2016 He responds in a monotone, direct way and says he doesn’t like it, but asks if she sells any jewelry she makes. The Accountant 2016 She tells him that she just sells a few at church fairs or to friends but not in any meaningful way. The Accountant 2016 He asks if she has an office she uses to produce her wares, and she keeps insisting that it’s just a hobby she does when she’s watching TV. The Accountant 2016 He is gently steering them toward declaring it as a home business, telling them the IRS allows the deduction of a certain amount of household expenses when used for business purposes. The Accountant 2016 He subtly suggests to the husband that they declare a large portion of the house as her “home office.” After more questioning, she says she simply drives her truck to the local craft store to purchase beads, and he corrects her, saying she is driving the company vehicle to purchase business supplies.

The farmer and his wife leave in a much happier mood, grateful to Christian for his expertise. The Accountant 2016 The farmer invites Christian to his home for fishing, to which Christian responds flatly that he doesn’t fish, but he does shoot. The Accountant 2016 The farmer tells him he has plenty of space for shooting if he’d like to visit them sometime. The Accountant 2016 Christian does visit the farm and sets up cantaloupes with simple faces drawn on, matching the stick figure faces seen in the Harbor Institute. The Accountant 2016 He sets up with a high powered sniper rifle. The Accountant 2016 The farmer watches through binoculars from the house and claims that the 1,000 foot distance would be impossible for Christian to hit, but Christian shoots them all accurately in quick succession.

Meanwhile, Ray King (JR Simmons), the director of financial crimes at the Treasury Department calls a young analyst, Marybeth Medina, into his office. The Accountant 2016 He credits her with a big investigation, though she demurs and says it was a team effort. The Accountant 2016 He asks why she hasn’t applied for an agent position, and she deflects, saying she enjoys her job. The Accountant 2016 Ray shows her what he has on his computer screen, which is Marybeth’s juvenile criminal record. The Accountant 2016 It shows serious charges including assault, drugs and attempted murder. The Accountant 2016 She is shocked as she believed the records to be sealed. The Accountant 2016 He tells her that it’s a felony offense to lie on an application to work for the federal government, as she had hidden her past. The Accountant 2016 She asks what he wants.

Ray hands her a stack of photographs, which show terrorists, drug cartel leaders, mafia bosses, and other criminal leaders meeting with the same man, who is only seen from behind or partial profile. The Accountant 2016 Ray explains that he is an accountant who works for the world’s biggest criminals, as they cannot call H&R Block when they have a financial problem. The Accountant 2016 He is surprised that the accountant has survived this long, given how dangerous his clientele is. The Accountant 2016 He knows of multiple aliases used by the accountant, including Lou Carroll and Carl Gauss. The Accountant 2016 Ray tells Marybeth that he is retiring soon, and her job is to find out who the accountant is, or he will reveal her criminal past.

In Zurich, a man gets into his car in a parking garage. The Accountant 2016 A second man (the Assassin) quickly enters the vehicle and calmly pulls out his gun, placing a silencer on it. The Accountant 2016 The first man is dismissive, saying he has kidnapping insurance so the Assassin should just get on with his business quickly. The Accountant 2016 The Assassin is surprised at his arrogance. The Accountant 2016 He explains that he was hired to send a message to the man, who is a stockbroker and has been shorting the stocks of the Assassin’s boss’ company. The Accountant 2016 The Assassin orders the stockbroker to stop shorting stocks. The Accountant 2016 The man is continually arrogant and dismissive, so the Assassin strikes him deftly and repeatedly. The Accountant 2016 The man tries reaching for the gun at one point, but the Assassin skillfully deflects him. The Accountant 2016 The man finally submits and asks which company he should stop shorting, as he does it to many companies. The Accountant 2016 The Assassin simply tells him to stop shorting all stocks or he’ll return to kill him. The Accountant 2016 He exits the car and leaves.

Christian drives to his home, which is very bare. The Accountant 2016 He has no art or photos or any decorations in the house. The Accountant 2016 He owns exactly one plate, one fork, one knife, one spoon, and prepares himself dinner. The Accountant 2016 He is highly ritualized in the way he prepares his food. The Accountant 2016 He continuously shows small tics, like blowing on his fingers before picking up his fork. The Accountant 2016 Later in the evening, he goes into his bedroom and turns on a strobe light and loud, heavy metal music. The Accountant 2016 He picks up a small, wooden rod and uses it to roll on his leg muscles. The Accountant 2016 He is trying to remain calm, subjecting himself to the stressful stimuli until his alarm beeps and it’s time to take his Zoloft.

Interspersed throughout the film are flashbacks to Christian’s childhood. The Accountant 2016 One day his mother leaves their family, as the stress of taking care of the boys, particularly with special needs, is unbearable as the father is never around. The Accountant 2016 Young Christian is screaming and throwing things and punching through walls, while his younger brother watches resentfully. The Accountant 2016 The father is arguing with the mother that she can’t abandon her family and tells her to wait a moment. The Accountant 2016 He runs in the house to hold Christian tightly until he calms down. The Accountant 2016 The mother gets into her waiting cab, and the younger brother gives her the middle finger from the window.

In present day, Christian is seen talking on the phone with a woman (the Voice) whose caller ID is a smiley face, similar to the ones from the stick figure face diagram referenced earlier. The Accountant 2016 She has a very flat affect as well and is prone to stating emotions or describing her behavior, such as stating “deep sigh” rather than actually sighing. The Accountant 2016 They are discussing new jobs for Christian. The Accountant 2016 She suggests he take a legitimate job for a company called Living Robotics rather than a criminal assignment that is more dangerous, as she cares for his safety. The Accountant 2016 They also discuss some of his assets, including a Renoir painting and a Pollock painting, that she is trying to sell for him.

Christian drives to a storage facility where he keeps a trailer. The Accountant 2016 Inside are his valuable paintings as well as cash, passports, gold bullion, first edition comic books and a storage space for lots of serious weapons. The Accountant 2016 He also has a copy of the stick figure face diagram. The Accountant 2016 He checks on everything periodically and goes on his way.

Marybeth’s investigation continues, and she is able to figure out that the Accountant’s known aliases are actually a famous mathematician (Carl Gauss) and Lewis Carroll, the author of Alice in Wonderland who was also a mathematician and suspected of having Asperger’s. The Accountant 2016 She relies on friends in the FBI who use the profile pictures to assemble a suggestion of what his face might look like. The Accountant 2016 They are also able to connect it to an unknown man who attacked a bar/club that was the base of operations for the Gambino crime family. The Accountant 2016 The man killed the two guards standing outside and then entered the home, killing the seven people inside using their own weapons, including the mafia boss’ son, Little Nicky, who was killed with one swift kick to the head. The Accountant 2016 The house was bugged, as the family was being investigated, so there is an audio recording of the attack, including a man begging for his life (linking it to the opening scene). The Accountant 2016 Nothing else can be heard other than the man begging and then the kick.

Marybeth manipulates the audio file and is eventually able to isolate a second, very quiet voice that seems to be muttering something repeatedly. The Accountant 2016 She sends this file to experts who tell her that it is a nursery rhyme being repeated over and over again. The Accountant 2016 She explains that the recording was made during a highly-stressful event, which makes the expert ask if the person was traumatized as young child. The Accountant 2016 The flat affect and repetitive nature of the recording, despite a high-stress environment, would indicate that the person has some sort of neurological disorder, such as autism.

Another flashback to Christian’s childhood shows that the family is living in Indonesia. The Accountant 2016 An older man is teaching the boys to fight and is quite brutal in beating them. The Accountant 2016 The father watches from the side while casually reading a newspaper. The Accountant 2016 The instructor finally says that they are just boys and that’s enough training. The Accountant 2016 The father remarks that if they were done, the instructor would be laying on the ground bleeding. The Accountant 2016 Young Christian replies in Indonesian that the instructor should continue. The Accountant 2016 The younger brother is deeply loyal to Christian, though he seems exhausted from the fight as well.

Christian visits Living Robotics where he meets with the CFO and the CEO’s sister, who is a high-ranking executive of the company. The Accountant 2016 The CFO is clearly put off that an outside financial consultant has been brought in to figure out a major financial discrepancy in the books. The Accountant 2016 He says that a young accountant who didn’t know what she was doing stuck her nose into things that weren’t her business. The Accountant 2016 He says he’s been working with the CEO, Lamar, for 15 years and would never hurt the company. The Accountant 2016 He also claims that the company’s records would be far too complex for Christian to decipher as they manufacture over 100 different products and have three different businesses. The Accountant 2016 Christian brushes off his concerns and asks for the documents to be prepared for him.

Christian also meets with Lamar, the CEO, who tells him that he (Christian) came highly recommended by someone whose daughter needed the company’s advanced prosthetics. The Accountant 2016 Lamar gives him a tour, showing him how their prosthetics have helped the lives of many amputees. The Accountant 2016 Lamar promises to fully cooperate with Christian’s investigation and to give him whatever he needs to complete the job.

The next day Christian returns to Living Robotics to find a young woman asleep in the conference room with boxes of files and folders neatly prepared for him. The Accountant 2016 He wakes her and she introduces herself as Dana Cummings (Anna Kendrick), the in-house accountant who found the discrepancies. The Accountant 2016 She tries to offer her assistance to walk him through the files and suggests they have lunch together. The Accountant 2016 Christian, in his somewhat odd demeanor, turns down her offer. The Accountant 2016 He sets about his work, which is highly ritualized. The Accountant 2016 He goes through all the old files and begins writing on the whiteboards and then on the windows of the conference room.

He takes a break for lunch and happens to sit near Dana who is also eating her lunch outside. The Accountant 2016 She notices his dented, steel thermos, and she tries to make small talk with him about why he went into financial consulting. The Accountant 2016 She tries joking with Christian, who is polite but doesn’t get jokes. The Accountant 2016 She tells him that she wanted to study art, but her father discouraged this and told her to follow in his footsteps as an accountant, the kind with a nerdy pocket protector, which Christian is also wearing. The Accountant 2016 She tells him the only art her father likes is dogs playing poker, which Christian says he also likes.

Christian works through the night and is able to deduce that $61 million is missing from the company. The Accountant 2016 He starts to explain it to Dana who catches on quickly. The Accountant 2016 The CEO’s sister interrupts them and dismisses Dana. The Accountant 2016 She wants to know if Christian has guessed who’s responsible for the missing money, to which Christian responds that he doesn’t guess. The Accountant 2016 He needs to keep reviewing the documents to figure it out. The Accountant 2016 She expects a full report from him shortly.

That night, the CFO of Living Robotics wakes up when he hears a noise downstairs. The Accountant 2016 He heads down and finds the Assassin waiting in his kitchen, with two henchmen. The Accountant 2016 They sit together and the Assassin calmly tells the CFO he should give himself a double dose of insulin, so his death will appear like an accident. The Accountant 2016 Otherwise, they will kill him violently and there might be a struggle, waking his wife, and they would have to kill her too and stage it as a robbery. The Accountant 2016 The CFO tearfully agrees.

The next day, Christian arrives at the office of Living Robotics to see all the files being packed up and his work being erased. The Accountant 2016 He is distraught at being unable to finish his investigation. The Accountant 2016 Lamar, the CEO, is upset, believing that his friend, the CFO, killed himself as he had been giving himself injections for many years and wouldn’t have made such a simple mistake. The Accountant 2016 Lamar tells Christian that the CFO killed himself out of guilt for scamming the money, and Lamar says his friend was more important than the money.



That night Christian engages in his usual ritual with the strobe light and loud music, but he is deeply frustrated that he wasn’t able to finish his assignment. The Accountant 2016 He hits himself painfully with his wooden rod and is unable to cope with the stimuli. The Accountant 2016 He grabs his medication and forcefully throws it across the room before calming down and picking it up.

Another flashback shows Christian in prison, talking with an older man with glasses (Jeffrey Tambor). The Accountant 2016 The man is very kind to Christian and is trying to coach him in having normal interactions with people, learning to read their emotions from the tone of their voice and their facial expressions. The Accountant 2016 They share a bunk, and late at night, he tells Christian about his clients, who are the criminals mentioned in the beginning of the film.

Christian visits the farmer and his wife again, to practice more shooting. The Accountant 2016 As he sets up, he has a flashback to another childhood memory when his family was living in France. The Accountant 2016 His father drives him and his brother to an abandoned alley where four teens are hanging around. The Accountant 2016 The teens have been bullying Christian, and his father tells him that he must fight back as people will walk all over him otherwise. The Accountant 2016 Christian gets out of the car and runs up to the bigger teens, beating them up. The Accountant 2016 The younger brother waits in the car, until his father tells him to follow, and he leaps out of the car to help Christian.

The Assassin’s two henchmen have followed Christian to the farm and are holding the farmer and his wife inside hostage. The Accountant 2016 They have the wife call out to Christian, but he doesn’t seem to hear them. The Accountant 2016 Then suddenly, one of the henchmen is shot through the head by a sniper rifle. The Accountant 2016 The other henchman grabs the couple and heads to the car, but Christian shoots out the tires. The Accountant 2016 He then heads to the couple’s truck, and Christian shoots the engine to disable it. The Accountant 2016 He runs up to the truck and grabs the henchman. The Accountant 2016 Christian strangles him and asks who hired him. The Accountant 2016 The henchman won’t say, but hands over Dana’s ID, saying that his instructions were to kill the two of them. The Accountant 2016 Christian kills him and casually waves bye to the farmer and his wife.

Christian rushes out in his truck and calls the Voice. The Accountant 2016 She tells him to get to his storage unit, hitch up the trailer and get out of town immediately, in her flat affect. The Accountant 2016 She works on setting up a new identity, changing the registration on his car, and killing off the Christian Wolff identity. The Accountant 2016 She advises him not to worry about Dana, as he only has time to save himself.

Marybeth’s investigation leads her to a friend at the IRS. The Accountant 2016 He helps her comb through tax returns of accountants with the names of Carl Gauss and Lewis Caroll. The Accountant 2016 Using some filters, they narrow down the list but the most likely suspects are already dead. The Accountant 2016 She then produces a list of 100 of the most famous mathematicians, believing that the Accountant would be using the list as his aliases. The Accountant 2016 They slowly search through the system for the different names.

Christian goes to Dana’s apartment, afraid for her safety. The Accountant 2016 He sees that she is being followed by somebody through the window but can’t enter the building. The Accountant 2016 He gets in through a service entrance and climbs the stairs rapidly to get to her floor. The Accountant 2016 Two delivery men have followed her down her hallway, though she doesn’t suspect anything. The Accountant 2016 Two more guards are waiting in the hallway. The Accountant 2016 Christian quickly kills the two guards in the hallway. The Accountant 2016 The two delivery men burst into Dana’s apartment, attacking her but she fights back. The Accountant 2016 She locks herself in the bathroom and tries to escape. The Accountant 2016 Christian enters, killing one of the men and then fighting the other man who has just broken into the bathroom. The Accountant 2016 Dana is shocked to see Christian who has ruthlessly dispatched the men.

Christian takes Dana with him to his storage unit. The Accountant 2016 He instructs her to wait outside but she enters anyway, finding his cash and valuable paintings and a storage space his weapons. The Accountant 2016 He is annoyed that she came inside to his private space where he is packing up clothes, cash, passports and comic books. The Accountant 2016 She questions how he owns an original Renoir and an original Pollock, which he explains he received as payment.

Marybeth’s exhaustive search has not yielded anything so far. The Accountant 2016 On a hunch, they pull up the two accountants who fit her profile (Caucasian male, age 25-45) for the last name on the list, Christian Wolff. The Accountant 2016 One declared an income of over $500,000, which tipped the IRS off for an audit, which revealed that he was clean. The Accountant 2016 The other declared an income of $75,000. The Accountant 2016 This accountant’s firm is called ZZZ Accounting, which seems suspicious as it’s a bad choice for a name when they are listed alphabetically in a phone book. The Accountant 2016 They look up a picture of the street view for the firm, which is in a dingy strip mall with a nail salon, laundromat and Chinese food restaurant. The Accountant 2016 On a hunch, Marybeth has her friend look up the tax returns on the three neighboring businesses. The Accountant 2016 ZZZ Accounting is listed as the accountant for all three businesses, who have each declared over $400,000 in income. The Accountant 2016 When they try to figure out where the money has gone, they realize that huge charitable contributions have been made to Harbor Neuroscience.

Marybeth takes this information to Ray who is speaking at a press conference about a recent high-profile investigation that was completed successfully. The Accountant 2016 When questioned about how they received such intel, Ray simply cites good old-fashioned investigative work. The Accountant 2016 Marybeth shows him her research and they agree to check out ZZZ Accounting and Christian Wolff.

Christian takes Dana to a fancy hotel. The Accountant 2016 They talk more about the strange accounts of Living Robotics. The Accountant 2016 Christian uncovered that $61 million was embezzled but then hidden under different accounts, so it wasn’t technically missing. The Accountant 2016 They go up to their room, and Christian paces around the hotel room, muttering something over and over to himself, so Dana asks him to sit with her. The Accountant 2016 They talk, and Christian tells her that he has high-functioning autism, so he has difficulty connecting with people even though he wants to. The Accountant 2016 Dana tells him a story of how she wanted to buy an expensive gown for her high school prom so that she could wow her classmates and feel like she deserved to be special and to belong, forming a connection with Christian. The Accountant 2016 Her original plan backfired when she tried to learn to count cards and go to a casino with all her savings, but on her way out with her remaining $20, she played a slot machine and won enough money to buy the dress, which she only wore one time. The Accountant 2016 She asks Christian why he brought them to a fancy hotel to hide out, which he deflects by saying the water pressure is good. The Accountant 2016 He then cites the nice towels, as he wanted her to enjoy it. The Accountant 2016 She starts to lean in and get closer to Christian, when he suddenly sits up and references an old electronics chain.

He remembers it because the business owner ran an ingenious scam by stealing money out of the business but then investing it back in it, inflating its value so that its stocks would sell for more money. The Accountant 2016 He realizes this is what Living Robotics must be doing.

Christian sets out to see Lamar’s sister, believing her to be behind the plot. The Accountant 2016 As he pulls up to her home, he sees a suspicious man exiting her building. The Accountant 2016 He follows from across the street, and we see that it’s the Assassin. The Accountant 2016 The Assassin seems to know someone is following him though he never turns and looks. The Accountant 2016 He then quickly pulls out his gun and fires two shots at Christian, who ducks behind a car. The Accountant 2016 When he peers out, the Assassin is gone. The Accountant 2016 Christian enters the building and finds that Lamar’s sister is dead.

Marybeth and Ray are able to track down Christian’s home, which he has abandoned. The Accountant 2016 They find high-tech surveillance cameras outside as well as a huge machine gun mounted in his garage. The Accountant 2016 Ray sees the dented thermos in the cupboard and smiles knowingly. The Accountant 2016 After searching the house thoroughly, Marybeth and Ray sit in the living room and Marybeth asks why he’s so fixated on the Accountant.

Ray tells Marybeth that Francis Silverberg used to be the accountant for the Gambino crime family, in addition to other criminal leaders. The Accountant 2016 As Francis was getting older, the Gambinos were afraid that he would might eventually rat them out, so with his life in danger, Francis went into protective custody in prison. The Accountant 2016 In prison, he met Christian and took him under his wing. The Accountant 2016 He taught Christian about his business and his clients, and told him that his mistake was staying in one place for too long.

Christian was later moved to a different facility to help the government financially track terrorists. The Accountant 2016 At some point, Ray was placed on the investigation into the Gambino family and met with Francis in prison, but Ray didn’t take him seriously. The Accountant 2016 For some reason, Francis is released from prison where he is no longer protected. The Accountant 2016 The Gambinos catch him and torture him and kill him. The Accountant 2016 When a guard at Christian’s new facility lets him know, Christian grabs the guard’s coffee thermos and smashes him over the head and escapes. The Accountant 2016 Since Ray didn’t take his interview with Francis seriously, he felt partially responsible for his death.

Marybeth asks why Christian was in prison in the first place. The Accountant 2016 Ray tells her that Christian’s mother died, and he and his father, who were both in full military dress, went to the funeral where they saw her new husband and their two young boys. The Accountant 2016 The new husband tried to have them escorted out, and Christian responded violently. The Accountant 2016 Christian’s father tried to break it up and was shot and killed by accident.

Ray asks Marybeth about her background and the charges on her record. The Accountant 2016 She explains that the man she assaulted was a drug dealer she was trying to get her sister away from. The Accountant 2016 She pistol-whipped him and locked him in the trunk of a car, but it was worth it as her sister grew up to have a normal life with a career and family.

Ray tells her that later on, he sat in a surveillance truck for months outside the Gambino headquarters with nothing to show for it when one day, a man walks up and kills the two mafia guards standing outside. The Accountant 2016 Ray runs inside rather than waiting for backup, to find multiple dead bodies inside (connecting to the opening scene, and the audio recording). The Accountant 2016 He hears Little Nicky upstairs begging for his life. The Accountant 2016 Based on what he hears and what he sees, he believes that the killer was out for revenge for something deeply personal. The Accountant 2016 Ray follows quietly and is about to enter the room, when Christian comes up behind with him a gun. The Accountant 2016 Christian questions him, and Ray tells him that he’s just a lowly Treasury agent. The Accountant 2016 Christian asks if he’s good at his job, which Ray tells him he’s not. The Accountant 2016 He says he’s lousy at his job, but he has children and begs him not to kill him. The Accountant 2016 Christian asks if he’s a good father. The Accountant 2016 Ray tells him that he know he’s bad at his job, but he’s a great father and he always did right by his kids. The Accountant 2016 Christian walks away.

Ray tells this story to Marybeth and then tells her that he planned to retire right away and give up the job, but on the way out the door, he gets a phone call. The Accountant 2016 He picks it up and it’s the Voice, tipping him off to a human trafficking ring. The Accountant 2016 He gets the credit for the case. The Accountant 2016 He later gets another tip about drugs coming into the country, and he is again credited for the case, raising his profile and success at the agency. The Accountant 2016 Marybeth realizes that all of Ray’s successes came from the Voice. The Accountant 2016 Ray then reminds her that he’s retiring soon, so someone else needs to take the Voice’s calls. The Accountant 2016 At first, Marybeth refuses. The Accountant 2016 Then the phone in Christian’s house rings. The Accountant 2016 She answers it, and the Voice tells her to tell Ray to get his feet off the coffee table.

Later, the Assassin is setting up a team of henchmen at the home of Lamar, the CEO of Living Robotics, as he was behind the whole plot and killed his CFO and his sister to cover his tracks. The Accountant 2016 The Assassin questions Lamar about Christian, but Lamar is dismissive and says he’s just a freak. The Accountant 2016 He also asks Lamar what the point of all of this was. The Accountant 2016 Lamar claims that his ability to help people far outweighs any crimes he’s committed. The Accountant 2016 Christian is able to get on the premises and kill the henchmen one by one, leaving only one man and the Assassin, who has been monitoring the situation on surveillance cameras. The Accountant 2016 As the Assassin watches, he realizes that Christian is muttering nursery rhymes to himself, which the Assassin recognizes. The Accountant 2016 The last remaining henchman has a gun on Christian, but the Assassin bursts in and tells him to stand down. The Accountant 2016 The henchman ignores him and is about to pull the trigger when the Assassin kills his own henchman.

Christian stands up from behind his hiding place and greets the Assassin, “Hello Braxton,” revealing that the Assassin is Christian’s younger brother. The Accountant 2016 The two men are surprised to see each other as they haven’t seen each other in 10 years. The Accountant 2016 As they talk, it becomes increasingly antagonistic. The Accountant 2016 Braxton blames Christian for their father’s death because Christian wanted to go to their mother’s funeral, even though she abandoned their family. The Accountant 2016 Christian lets Braxton take his anger out on him without fighting back. The Accountant 2016 Lamar watches all this on the surveillance cameras incredulously.

Braxton challenges Christian to fight back, asking him why he (Christian) didn’t turn to him for support, and he’s always been there for him his whole life. The Accountant 2016 Christian does fight back and they finally end up on the floor, both tired. The Accountant 2016 Lamar enters the room and asks what the hell is going on. The Accountant 2016 Christian abruptly shoots Lamar, and then offhandedly apologizes to Braxton, saying he had to finish what he started.

Christian gets up to leave and Braxton asks if they can meet again soon. The Accountant 2016 Christian tells him that he’ll find in about a week.

Christian leaves a note for Dana in her hotel room, telling her that she deserves “wow”. The Accountant 2016 He packs up his trailer and drives away.

At another press conference at the Treasury Department, reporters ask about the scandal surrounding Living Robotics and the recent death of its CEO and how the Treasury Department was able to solve the case. The Accountant 2016 The director calls up the agent in charge, Marybeth who follows Ray’s cue and simply cites good old-fashioned investigative work.

Dana is back in her apartment and repairing the damage caused by the fight when she gets a mysterious package delivered to her. The Accountant 2016 She opens it up to find a painting, seemingly expecting the Pollock she saw in Christian’s trailer. The Accountant 2016 Instead, it’s the painting of dogs playing poker. The Accountant 2016 She laughs, but when she notices the canvas seems to be loose, she pulls at it and realizes the Pollock is underneath the dogs.

The final scene takes place at Harbor Neuroscience. The Accountant 2016 Two parents are talking to the same psychologist from the beginning, telling him about their son. The Accountant 2016 Their son wanders through the house. The Accountant 2016 The psychologist tells the parents that the outside world will treat him like he’s different or dumb, and then he will be burdened by the low expectations. The Accountant 2016 Most of the other people in the house are children, but the boy wanders into the room of an adult woman who is screaming and shaking and smacking herself in the head. The Accountant 2016 The boy’s parents come in and apologize for their son wandering in. The Accountant 2016 The woman calms down briefly as she looks at the boy and seems to smile at him. The Accountant 2016 The psychologist tells them that the woman’s name is Justine, one of their few full-time residents. The Accountant 2016 She’s unable to communicate verbally, but she can do so using her computer. The Accountant 2016 He suggests that the boy hang out with Justine while he finishes giving the parents their tour. The Accountant 2016 They agree and leave their son with Justine who seems to have calmed down.

The parents ask the psychologist about Justine, and he explains that she’s his daughter and the reason he started his institute. The Accountant 2016 They also ask how they are funded, and he tells them that they have some very generous benefactors. The Accountant 2016 The father asks if that is how Justine has such an expensive computer. The Accountant 2016 He explains that he’s an engineer and that her computer is powerful enough to hack the Pentagon, which the psychologist didn’t realize.

Back in the room, Justine goes to her computer while the boy looks around the room. The Accountant 2016 He sees a framed puzzle of Muhammed Ali on the wall. The Accountant 2016 Justine sits down at her computer to show the boy how she communicates. The Accountant 2016 She types something and the Voice greets the boy. The Accountant 2016 She smiles and a photo on the wall shows that she is the same young girl at the beginning of the film who connects with young Christian over the puzzle.

    It’s as if John Wick is the savant janitor from Good Will Hunting, andsurprisingly, it worked.

    What should you expect? It has flashes of John Wick action, but it mostcertainly isn’t an all out action movie, however, it also isn’tprimarily a drama focusing on his autistic/accounting side of things; Ifelt they did a really good job of combining both elements into a moviethat swings back and forth between the two.

    I thought the acting was great all around; I found the plot solid andenjoyable.

    Here is the bottom line: Yes, this movie is worth your money to see inthe theater.

    p.s. I’ll be the first to admit I have no idea how autism reallyaffects people and how accurate it is or is not portrayed in thismovie; I saw this movie as nothing more than what it is: a fictionalstory to entertain.

  2. bkrauser-81-311064 from United States says:

    Christian Wolff (Affleck) has a secret. Behind the cover of anunassuming CPA office, the otherwise resourceful and bashful mathsavant works free-lance for some of the world’s most nefarious criminalenterprises in the world. Yemen, Pakistan, New York, London, no matterwhere the man goes, there’s simply no balance book too unclean nor anyemployer too dangerous for Wolff not to find missing money. Thoserecalcitrant enough to think he knows too much, end up at the businessend of an anti-aircraft gun.

    Yet this is only part of the story of Christian Wolff, as hinted in thepuzzle-piece graphics of the film’s brilliant trailer. One thing we getto know almost straight away is Wolff is somewhere on the spectrum.Asperger’s, PDD, high-functioning autism; “I prefer not to put a labelon things,” says Jason Davis’s neurologist character as young Chris(Lee) jostles in the background. Convenient; now we can assume Wolff’sabilities to uncooked 15 years of books in a single afternoon, kill anassailant with a J. Crew bridle belt and find the works of JacksonPollock stimulating are all functions of his un- categorized disorder.

    Now in fairness to the film, Hollywood hasn’t exactly had a stellartrack record when it comes to giving autistic characters moments in thelimelight, even when they’re being portrayed with a modicum of sympathyor humanity. To give credit where credit is due, The Accountant does agood job differentiating between the attributes of Chris’s disorderwith the skills he has ascertained through years of tutelage from hisroughneck father (Treveiler). As exploitative as the film could havebeen, I give props to writer Bill Dubuque for not making our entrenchedprotagonist an autism powered super assassin but rather a giftedassassin who also processes the world differently.

    Yet the film also seems to want to add more to the soup adding layersof espionage thriller dramatics, murder mystery reveals and oddlyfamiliar flashbacks which all seem to serve different masters. Much ofthe film diverts attention between Wolff and blackmailed Treasuryanalyst Marybeth Medina (Addai-Robinson) who is coaxed by Director King(Simmons) to find the mystery accountant. The buildup in itself isalright but the backlog of reveals and plot-twists culminates in onefifteen minute exposition drop that capsizes the film like throwing abrick at a miniature sailboat.

    Meanwhile the mystery afoot in The Accountant involves Wolff’s newestfreelance job which has him investigating biomedical pioneer LamarBlack (Lithgow) and his company. While initially a mundane audit job,Wolff finds himself in a web of intrigue that ensnares the company’sboard of directors, a sinister security force and a salaried accountant(Kendrick) who first uncovered the can of worms.

    Again, the mystery in itself could have worked if it lent itself moreorganically to the character. Unfortunately the unexpected MichaelClayton (2007) milieu only made me want to see Wolff’s less legitimatework all the more. It’d be one thing if Wolff was a pedestrian CPA withAsperger’s, who was suddenly thrust into a plot of corporate intrigue.Yet knowing that the man has a clientele that includes terrorists, drugcartels, the mob and a suspiciously quaint melon farmer, I keptexpecting bigger fish to come swimming up.

    Overall, The Accountant is a skillfully done semi-decent thriller thatcould have done infinitely better if it defined what it was early andkept its focus. Is it a cerebral mystery, a ballsy action flick, afamily drama, a cautionary tale, a morality play, an excuse to commendBen Affleck’s range; certainly it can be all. But sadly it settles forbeing a knower of all and a master of none.

  3. fontana-marcos from Brazil says:

    Yesterday I went to watch the Accountant movie. After watch the movie Ifelt a strong relation with another movie, Warrior (another movie thatI really enjoyed). When I came back to my house, with a small researchI saw that the director of both movies was the same, Gavin O’Connor.Now, I feel that I watched 2 movies with different histories but withthe same essence. I really enjoyed this movie. It worth every penny.

    Ben Affleck did very well on this movie. Other actors too. Well doneproduction.

    The action scenes were really well done and the Barrett .50 sound isamazing. I love that weapon.

  4. Harun Karali from Turkey says:

    Christian Wolff has a way with numbers, He works as a freelanceaccountant for the most dangerous criminals the city has to offer. Butthat’s just his day job, At night he has a much more lucrative way tomake a living. His job always keeps him on edge and with the TreasuryDepartment’s Crime Enforcement Division run by Ray King closing in, hestarts to go into a nose dive. Afflecks strong performance and a tightscript to back it, puts this seemingly simple movie into perspective.Gavin O’Connor builds a smart and thought-provoking film. With BillDubuques polishing touch they create a unique blend of agile andcanniness that seems to be what big blockbusters lack these days.Despite it’s many pros, The Accountant isn’t without it’s flaws. Asgood as the story is, the editing feels unhinged. Unfortunately thescreenplay hits a few bumps when confronting clichés. However these arebut inconsistencies in a bigger picture and if you can over look them,as I have, than you will appreciate this film for what it is.

  5. stork1947 from United States says:

    I have watched the Jason Bourne sagas for years. James Bond movies havebeen a mainstay since I was in my teens. Ben Affleck, as an actor, wasaverage at best. With that said, I was somewhat skeptical when thetrailers were first released about “The Accountant”. My curiosity gotthe best of me. So I went to see it at a matinée. IT WAS SO GOOD!!!Every question raised in this movie was answered by its conclusion. Itwas so entertaining and creative. I LOVED IT!! The audience applaudedat the end while the credits rolled.

    I had to go see it again, because I missed some nuances. When I saw itthe second time, again the audience (a different group) applauded atthe end. GREAT MOVIE!!!

    I might see it a third time. Can’t get too much of a good thing.

  6. drjgardner from California says:

    I’m not a Ben Afflick fan but I am a fan of the 3Ds (doom, destruction,and death) and I thought this was a 3D film. Yes, it is a 3D film, butit is so much more. In reality the film is about family, and you won’trealize that at first.

    The script is so well crafted this film should be used in writingclasses. I guarantee you will not know what’s coming, and after theyhit you, they’re going to hit you again, even better. Truly exceptionalwriting.

    The acting is also exceptional. Anna Kendrick, J.K.Simmons, and JonBernthal really stand out, and for Bernthal it is a change of pace andhe carries it off very well. Jeffrey Tambor, John Lithgow and JeanSmart do their usual good job.

    You should see this film. I’ve rated nearly 5,000 films and only gave87 a rating of “10”. That’s how good I think this film is.

  7. parleon-thedon from United States says:

    Gavin O’Connor, the director of my favorite movie Warrior. Ben Affleck,the once ridiculed but now stupendous entertainer. J.K. Simmons, thedistinguished actor from Whiplash. Jon Bernthal, the rising star fromThe Walking Dead who’s a known but yet still unknown actor, and he’sgreat by the way. John Lithgow, an actor who delivers uncannyespecially when he’s the villain. Bill Dubuque, who the hell is thisguy, but he wrote this movie, and this appears to be his first majorproject besides Robert Downey Jr’s The Judge. I enjoy all of thesepeople’s work one way or another. This movie has a good director, goodleading man, and an all-star cast. From the trailers, this movie seemedlike an intellectual movie about a young boy growing up with mentalproblems, the boy grows up and becomes an accountant, through his workhe does business with shady characters, for some reason his clientswant him dead, but we know The Accountant is far more capable of muchmore than they know. I was anticipating this movie based on all theinformation I just provided. I thought this movie couldn’t miss. Is TheAccountant a good movie? The Accountant is a good movie.

    The direction of this seems rather simple, but as the story progresses,things become a bit too complicated, and maybe not for the better.

    I understood the main story and what was happening. The subplot of themovie is what threw me off. I thought the secondary plot was a bitmessy but yet still engaging.

    The acting in this movie was excellent. I think Ben Affleck as ChristanWolff is the best character he’s ever played. Affleck’s performance isboth engaging and mesmerizing. Everyone does their job here, butAffleck steals the show.

    The violence feels ultra realistic. I love action movies, but none havefelt as real as this in a long time. When The Accountant kills people,he kills people, and it’s not pretty.

    There’s a lot of jump cutting that’s present here. This movieconstantly jumps from the past to the present without warning, but thetransitions are fluid.

    The execution of the story at times feels tedious due to its consistentjump cutting, multi-layered plot, and abundance of characters.

    Each character gets their moment, and everyone plays a part, but it’sthe coincidence that brings them all together.

    I think this movie is trying to be more than what it is, and itsucceeds. The Accountant movie has a multi-layered engaging main plotabout mental illness in young children and how they cope with theirsituations. The secondary plot is about The Accountant doing businesswith the wrong people. There’s another plot to this movie with J.KSimmons and his story’s compelling, but it lacks conviction.

    Overall, I enjoyed this movie. The fight scenes and choreography werebreathtaking. The main plot was engaging. Ben Affleck delivered thebest performance of his career. Every actor played their part. Thismovie suffers from sensory overload, but regardless, I believe that itwill stimulate not only intellectuals but white-knuckled action junkiesas well. The main plot, Ben Affleck, and the violence is ferocious.

    A thriller should be entertaining and smart, both of which TheAccountant is. Christian Wolff (Ben Affleck) is not Christian in thetraditional sense, but he is a wolf of a hunter, about as accurate asanyone behind a telescopic gun barrel could be.

    Yet he’s a brilliant accountant at the same time, thank you, autism: Hehas a savant’s grasp of facts and numbers (think Dustin Hoffman in RainMan) but a serious deficiency in the affective and communicativecategories. Affleck plays him with a grasp of disaffection that isalmost humorous, in fact is with some of his straight-arrow responses:”I don’t guess,” he says when queried if he had a hunch about theperpetrator of a fraud.

    You see, he is hired by all kinds of wealthy and criminal businesspeople and governments to uncook their books or whatever is necessaryto discover fraud or put the books in order. These jobs lead tosituations where he is wanted by bad guys or the IRS or whomever.Wolff’s legitimate, current job for a robotics company is complicatedenough for him to need several glass walls to write on (think Affleck’sbuddy Mark Damon in Good Will Hunting), taking in hours what wouldconsume days for a host of professional accountants.

    And so it goes according to the thriller formula that the bad guys willbe on his trail, and he will be made vulnerable by a cute co-worker,Dana (Anna Kendrick), who has some of his math savvy and maybe a bit ofsweet for him. The Accountant veers from formula because that romanceis of the “chaste-and-from-afar” kind, almost but not quite at the kissstage. It’s pleasant not to be bothered by heavy sex when thecomplications are of the cerebral, themselves the core of pleasure inthis brainy, but not too, action drama.

    Unfortunately our autistic hero, trained by a merciless military fatherto defend himself because dad knew son would always be treated asdifferent, slips into thriller stereotype, e.g. Christian puts down toomany hired guns at one time, albeit in the service of a nobleretaliation for a prison friend. Although the action is within theparameters of the genre, it here feels overdone given the cerebralcontexts that otherwise provide plenty of thrills.

    One of the joys of this film is to see Affleck show some acting chops;he may never be like Dustin Hoffman, but he’s memorably stoic here, along way from J.Lo and Gigli.

    This film connected with me on so many levels. It delivered in ways Iwas not expecting. I was laughing, cheering, crying, and ultimatelywalked out of that theater feeling more than satisfied. I want to gosee it again. Something that is great about this film is that there arethings you will pick up on more clearly through a second viewing, butit is not required to fully enjoy the film. Like I said in my title, Ican say without a shadow of doubt that this film is better than anyother film released this year. However, I will follow that by saying Ihave yet to see “Hell or High Water”. So it’s more like 99.9% sure. Wewill see how it holds up against the remaining anticipated releases. Ido honestly believe it should be nominated come award season. This filmis phenomenal and if you do not see this film before you die, you aredoing yourself a disservice.

    So… it’s not the most PR-friendly title in the world, but it is awhole lot more interesting than it sounds. Ben Affleck plays thetitular accountant (who may or may not be called Christian Wolff) – asort of evil Jack Reacher of the financial world: off-the-grid behindmultiple aliases and with financial fingers in more murky pies aroundthe world than seems tasteful.

    Not only is he a mathematical genius with the numbers, but is alsoextremely handy with his fists and an arsenal of high powered weaponryhe keeps in his executive trailer home… ready to up-roots anddisappear at any time.

    Supported over the phone by a mysterious ‘Pepper-Potts-style’ personalassistant, who appears more machine than person, Affleck is guided fromjob to job, dropping in the occasional “normal” job to keep theauthorities off his tail. One of these is for a bio-technology companyheaded up by Lamar Black (John Lithgow) who brings him in – against thewishes of his FD and long term friend Ed Chilton (Andy Umberger) -since all appears not quite right in the books. Junior accountant DanaCummings (Anna “Pitch Perfect” Kendrick) is the young lady who has seenthe discrepancy but can’t track it down in the labyrinthine accounts.

    This so called ‘safe’ job lands both him and Dana in extreme danger asperson or persons unknown, fronted by a hired ‘heavy’ played by JonBernthal, try to prevent some dodgy activities coming to the surface.

    As a parallel thread, the head of the Treasury Department’s CrimeEnforcement Division, Ray King (J.K. Simmons, “Whiplash”) strong-arms(for no readily apparent reason) analyst Marybeth Medina (an impressiveCynthia Addai-Robinson) into pursuing Wolff. With a keen intellect anda strong incentive she begins to close in.

    Directed by Gavin O’ Connor, this – for me – is a frustratinglyinconsistent film. When it flies, it really flies well, both at anaction level and at a dramatic level. The flashback scenes to Wolff’schildhood are well done, showing how the autistic and needy youngsterwho needed compassion, quiet and understanding got the exact oppositefrom his militaristic father (Robert C Treveiler) to ‘jolt him out of’his condition. It is easy to understand how he turned out the way hedid.

    On the flip side, the plot progression almost deliberately shines aspotlight on some questions (no spoilers) that if you ask them youimmediately see the answers, resulting in most of the rest of the plotfalling into place without shock or surprise. There was only onegenuine twist for me, right at the end of the film, that I didn’t seecoming.

    The script by Bill Dubuque (“The Judge”) delivers some really nicescenes between Affleck and Kendrick, some smart (and genuinely funny)one-liners and one of the best abruptly ended speeches since Samuel L.Jackson’s in “Deep Blue Sea”. However, the whole Treasury Investigationstory-line (however good it is to see J.K. Simmons act) is somewhatsuperfluous to the whole thing and just doesn’t work.

    Kendrick and Affleck have good chemistry, with Affleck tryingdesperately to breathe some likability into what is a pretty cold andcalculating character. It’s hard though to empathise with someone who -albeit indirectly – is the source of such misery around the worldthrough drugs, terrorism, dictatorships and God-knows what else.Kendrick plays kooky and naive really well, but she really ought to getsome protocols sorted out around letting people into her apartment: shereally doesn’t seem to learn!

    It’s a nice idea and entertaining to watch, but the delivery is flawed.
