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.

Heavy violence, language in tale of killer with autism.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Accountant is an action movie about Christian Wolff (Ben Affleck), a man with a high-functioning form of autism who uses his math skills for very powerful people -- and his fighting and killing skills when trouble arises. While his character shows that people with autism aren't lesser than others, he's also extremely violent, which makes him an iffy role model at best. Most of the violence is fairly over the top, with lots of fighting (punching, bashing, martial arts) and shooting (lots of blood and point-blank shots to the face). Kids are shown in tense, possibly dangerous situations. Language isn't constant but includes "f--k," "s--t," and more. The main character takes prescription medications.
