Where do I even begin with this movie! It isn’t very often that I highly encourage someone that they need to go see a movie, but with this one that is exactly what I’m doing. As of lately it is very rare that Ben Affleck gives a bad performance, and this one is no exception. This is without a doubt one of the best films of the year and I guarantee if you see it you will not be disappointed.
Affleck gives an incredible performance as Christian Wolff, a math genius who is a freelance accountant for some of the most dangerous people in the world. While Wolff starts uncooking the books for a new client it isn’t the money count that starts to rise, but rather the body count.
This movie manages to be very intelligent while also action packed. It gives you a lot of information in a way that makes it easy to understand, while also managing to not be boring. The movie also has several plot twists that keep you intrigued and a performance from Anna Kendrick that is much better than I expected it to be. As well as great performances from J.K. Simmons, John Bernthal, Jeffery Tambor, and Cynthia Addai- Robinson.
