Storyline

John Milton is up against the clock: Jonah King, the leader of a Satanic cult, has murdered Milton's daughter and kidnapped her baby. In three days, King and his followers will sacrifice the child at midnight. Milton picks up the trail in Oklahoma as well as rescuing a waitress named Piper from her brutal, two-timing fiancé. There are odd things about Milton: his driver's license is out of date, he has a very strange gun, and he's being pursued by a man in a suit who carries FBI ID and calls himself the Accountant. Piper, who's lived a life on the sidelines, has to piece things together on the fly as they close in on King. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

Nicolas Cage said that one of the reasons he took on the part was the sequence where Jonah King shoots Milton's eyes out. There had been a similar sequence for Cage's character in the film "Season of the Witch" but it was cut so that film would keep its desired PG-13; Cage loved the notion of it being part of a crazy film that was aiming for a hard R rating.

Near the end of the motor-home chase, the trunk lid of the Charger is damaged and flapping open as the car goes over bumps, but when they stop beside the road, the trunk lid is closed and shows no visible damage. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
The Accountant: Since the birth of time, humanity has endeavored to restrain evil men in prisons. But since Cain fled the murder of his brother, evil men have fled the walls of punishment. So, it doesn't matter if you're a bad-ass motherf****r on the run, because you think you're better than everyone else, and somehow entitled to do what you gotta do. No. Because you see bad-ass motherf****rs are never fast enough. In the end, they will all be accounted for.

Is that your tongue in your cheek or are you just pleased to see me?
25 February 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

If you've seen the trailer you know what this films about. A Grandfather everyone thought was dead is out to save his baby granddaughter from the clutches of a gang of devil worshippers. Thats the plot in a nutshell and you don't need to know anymore.

This film is really a throwback to the old 70's revenge movies. The dialogue is purposely cheesy. The violence is over the top. There's nudity and gore and a few laughs to be had along the way. Nicholas Cage gives another fine unhinged performance delivering these cheesy lines like he was doing Shakespeare. Amber Heard as the sexy sidekick is just as good, but possible the best performance is from William Fichtner as the accountant. The music is loud the gunshots louder and the 3D is great all the way through.

For me it had a similar feel to the crank movies and planet terror. It was just stupid fun and I loved it.
