This is fantastically cut.
You hear the title and watch the first half of the trailer and you think Ben Affleck’s signed on for an Oscar bait role about an autistic numbers guy. But then all of sudden, child Ben Affleck punches a kid in the face, and then later grown up Ben Affleck has a shed with many assault rifles.
Wait, what? Definitely not what I was expecting. It’s a fascinating story and Affleck looks to be a solid choice to bring it to light. And then when it’s all said and done, he and Matt Damon can share a bottle of wine and argue over who’s a better spy.
THE ACCOUNTANT comes out October 14, 2016.
