The Accountant

possesses (as of this writing) a nearly perfect RottenTomatoes pairing:  51% of the critics liked it, but 87% of the audience liked it.  I'm solidly with the audience.

The movie delivered everything I wanted from it and then some.  The action was strong, the characters stayed true to who they were, the plot provided a fun ride, and the ending was both satisfying and open to a sequel.

Ben Affleck stayed within his character almost all the time and was generally a joy to watch.  All the supporting actors did fine jobs with their parts, but Jon Bernthal was particularly strong.

I don't want to spoil the plot for you, so I'll keep it to this:  if you want an action film that's both odder than most and possessed of more heart than most, check out The Accountant.
