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, 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.

In the hotel room, Dana (Anna Kendrick) reveals that in order to get the money to buy a Vera Wang gown, she taught herself how to play blackjack and to count cards to determine the chance to win a hand.

Why in God's name did I ever hire you?
To leak-proof your books. Dana found a mistake and you wanted to be sure it was safe to go public, and now you want to kill her.
I'm fond of Dana. But I restore lives, not Dana! Me! Men, women, children, I give them hope, make them whole. Do you even know what that's like?
Yes, I do.
[shoots Blackburn in the head. Looks at Braxton]
I missed you.

It's as if John Wick is the savant janitor from Good Will Hunting, and surprisingly, it worked.
What should you expect? It has flashes of John Wick action, but it most certainly isn't an all out action movie, however, it also isn't primarily a drama focusing on his autistic/accounting side of things; I felt they did a really good job of combining both elements into a movie that swings back and forth between the two.
I thought the acting was great all around; I found the plot solid and enjoyable.
Here is the bottom line: Yes, this movie is worth your money to see in the theater.
p.s. I'll be the first to admit I have no idea how autism really affects people and how accurate it is or is not portrayed in this movie; I saw this movie as nothing more than what it is: a fictional story to entertain.
