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 un-cooks the books and gets closer to the truth, it is the body count that starts to rise.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: The Accountant writes off a committed performance from Ben Affleck, leaving viewers with a scattershot action thriller beset by an array of ill-advised deductions.
Every Movie Has a Lesson
Many delectable connections and catalysts are deftly hidden in subtle imagery, passing clues, and little character quirks throughout the film. Some of the bigger twists are visible solar systems away while others spark and combust in clever reveals.

Smart movies offer intriguing setups, unique characters and tantalizing plot pirouettes. The Accountant is a smart movie. Smart movies also avoid offering imbecilic narrative coincidences and imploding third acts. Alas, The Accountant isn't THAT smart.
