Christian Wolff 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, 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. But as Christian uncooks the books and gets closer to the truth, it is the body count that starts to rise. Written by
Although the film was shot on location in Atlanta, Georgia, the film actually is set to take place in Plainfield, Illinois, with scenes in downtown Chicago, Illinois. Also, the high school Anna Kendrick's character mentions (Naperville North) is an actual high school, which Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul (2015)) graduated from. The school's math team has won 16 state championships. See more »

I'm not a Ben Afflick fan but I am a fan of the 3Ds (doom, destruction, and death) and I thought this was a 3D film. Yes, it is a 3D film, but it is so much more. In reality the film is about family, and you won't realize that at first.
The script is so well crafted this film should be used in writing classes. I guarantee you will not know what's coming, and after they hit you, they're going to hit you again, even better. Truly exceptional writing.
The acting is also exceptional. Anna Kendrick, J.K.Simmons, and Jon Bernthal really stand out, and for Bernthal it is a change of pace and he carries it off very well. Jeffrey Tambor, John Lithgow and Jean Smart do their usual good job.
You should see this film. I've rated nearly 5,000 films and only gave 87 a rating of "10". That's how good I think this film is.
