In the end, The Accountant makes for a solid, yet unremarkable, action flick that can’t live up to its higher aspirations. It earns points for mixing up the formula by having an autistic savant be the “hero,” but stops short of realizing its full potential. O’Connor has a steady hand in directing, crafting well-realized action set pieces and getting good performances out of his cast, but the screenplay is ultimately what lets the film down. Those who were intrigued by the marketing should be able to enjoy The Accountant, and it’s worth checking out during a slow time at the box office. However, cinephiles expecting a next-level “Good Will Hunting meets Jason Bourne” hybrid might be a tad disappointed.
