Gavin O’Connor’s 2016 release, The Accountant is an exciting old-fashioned actioner, that utilises Ben Affleck’s brawny leading man persona to perfection. Gavin O’Connor delivers a bone crunching thriller, which is reminiscent of the type of thing you would have thrown your cash down for at the multiplex box office way back in the pre-CGI 1990s.
Some will attack The Accountant for its silliness, but I embrace it’s aim to entertain. Ben Affleck makes for a great leading man and Gavin O’Connor surrounds him with a great supporting cast (Anna Kendrick, J.K. Simmons · Jon Bernthal, Jeffrey Tambor and John Lithgow)
