The Accountant is a 2016 American action thriller film directed by Gavin O’Connor, written by Bill Dubuque and starring Ben Affleck, Anna Kendrick, J. K. Simmons, Jon Bernthal, Jeffrey Tambor and John Lithgow. The film follows a highly-functioning autistic small-town certified public accountant who makes his living uncooking the books of dangerous criminal organizations that are experiencing internal embezzlement.
When saw I this trailer for this movie I found it very interesting. It is about a kid and man who has been diagnosed with autism. He is a small-town certified public accountant and makes a living uncooking the books of dangerous criminal organizations that are experiencing internal embezzlement.
But I don’t think of Ben Affleck’s character as being a villain, I consider him a man who had a tough childhood with autism who was not being afraid, learned to have self-defense and sometimes we can relate to him when we have difficulty socializing.
Somehow, when a person says you’re special and smart, there is nothing wrong to be diagnosed with autism. It’s a good thing to be smart and special.
So, watching this movie, I learned that sometimes when we have rough childhood, learning self-defense and being smart about all things can be very helpful to your own character.
But also I liked that there were hidden references in the movie. For example, when Affleck’s character had comic-books, one of them had a Superman comic and even when Christian was calling the Voice, it had a little nod reference to when Batman was calling Oracle on phone or bluetooth
I give this movie 100% approved. Ben did great and the cast was wonderful and I’m really looking forward to seeing Ben Affleck and J.K. Simmons again in Justice League as Bruce Wayne/Batman and Commissioner James “Jim” Gordon.
