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, it is set in Plainfield, Illinois, with scenes in downtown Chicago, Illinois. Also, the high school Dana mentions (Naperville North) is an actual high school, from which Bob Odenkirk graduated. The school's math team has won sixteen state championships. See more »
When Marybeth Medina is looking in the FBI's Suspected Gambino Family Associates database there are 3 profile photos with identical face, and 2 more with another identical face, while all of them should be different (unless there are triplets and twins in the same crime family, which seems very unreasonable),.

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.
