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
In theory, due to the characterization of how Ben Affleck portrays Christian Wolff, one could argue that even Bruce Wayne could have autism. The Dark Knight trilogy is the first time the character of Bruce Wayne/Batman is given a psychological background with his up-bringing, however in the history of Batman it is never revealed what exactly happened between his parent's murder and when he shows up as an adult, so it is very possible that before his training Bruce Wayne could have had some form of autism.

I have watched the Jason Bourne sagas for years. James Bond movies have been a mainstay since I was in my teens. Ben Affleck, as an actor, was average at best. With that said, I was somewhat skeptical when the trailers were first released about "The Accountant". My curiosity got the best of me. So I went to see it at a matinée. IT WAS SO GOOD!!! Every question raised in this movie was answered by its conclusion. It was so entertaining and creative. I LOVED IT!! The audience applauded at the end while the credits rolled.
I had to go see it again, because I missed some nuances. When I saw it the second time, again the audience (a different group) applauded at the end. GREAT MOVIE!!!
I might see it a third time. Can't get too much of a good thing.
