Storyline

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 Happy_Evil_Dude

Goofs

The old pickup's engine compartment's side is shot into while being used to E&E Thugs at the Ranch. It was just started & still cold, but the coolant steams & evaporates as if it were warmed or hot. In reality it'd simply leak if the cooling flow's circuit were breached soon after startup. If it were engine oil leaking onto an exhaust manifold or into the combustion chamber, it wouldn't evaporate & an oil smoke would linger for a few minutes, at the least. See more »

Excellent
25 February 2017 | by baburgener-13160See all my reviews

This is a wonderful movie. A lot more of an action flick than title suggests. Was a pleasant surprise as plot unfolded. Ben Affleck is perfect for this part. Well written script and good acting by all. Nice use of flashbacks for character development. Many twists and turns and a bit of a surprise ending. Watch it! You won't be disappointed.
