We trundled off to see The Accountant last evening, the new flick with Ben Affleck. This is a fun movie as long as you don’t take it too seriously. Instead, think of it as a comedy. That way you don’t have to struggle suspending your disbelief around the very unlikely plot.
The Accountant is like one of those superhero comic movies, only the protagonist is really really good at math – as well as being a martial arts expert and an ace shot. Oh, and he owns a Renoir and a Pollock. I like movies with characters who appreciate painting, don’t you?
I suspect this film is funnier than the writer, director and producers intended, but don’t worry about that. Just go see it and enjoy.
