Ten years ago someone said that, accounting is so boring even the best Hollywood writers working today cannot make it cool unless they make him an action hero too. A decade later, it happened and proved why he said it. I watched it because of some good Youtube reviews when I should have trusted the Rotten Tomatoes score. Here are a few thoughts:
1- Trailer is misleading. there is not much action.
2- For a movie named The Accountant, there is not much accounting either.
3- Fight choreography is shit
4- 1st 40 mins are painfully slow
5- 10 minutes of exposition starting at 1:26 in a 2hrs long movie? That is just lazy film-making.
6- Mini stories/plot points that take a long time and have no apparent connection, wait till last 12 mins to come together. Makes me wonder if these were added later to give the movie some plot.
7- The whole cast is a list of bad casting choices (for their roles) but still none of these actors gave a bad performance.
In the end, if you want to watch a good action movie to pass time, watch something else. You welcome 🙂 Later perhaps.
