Blaine’s Box Office: The Accountant

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

It's a movie starring Ben Affleck where someone other than Matt Damon's character is good at math!

The Accountant sets out to be both an action thriller and a possible setup for a franchise involving Affleck's character, an accounting whiz with autism who has ties to some dirty dealings.

The best parts of The Accountant were when we got to know some of the characters, namely Affleck's and Anna Kendrick's. Those two are dynamic on screen together. While the overall premise isn't terribly exciting, there are some magical moments between the two that help save this one.

I give The Accountant 3 out of 5 Blaines.
