Gavin O’Connor

Starring:

Ben Affleck

Anna Kendrick

J.K. Simmons

Plot:

As a math savant uncooks the books for a new client, the Treasury Department closes in on his activities and the body count starts to rise.

Review:

I’m not sure why I wanted to watch this movie, but from the first time I saw the trailer I wanted too. Thankfully, I wasn’t disappointed, though, I think I’m the only one.

Affleck didn’t play the best autistic person, but I still liked his character. I was glad that they didn’t make the brother resent him, even though I think the flashbacks were meant to build that expectation. I thought there should have been more there, the “surprise” with the brother was so obvious that it wasn’t needed and they could have just expanded more on their childhood.

I liked the movie, I don’t know if I have to own it, but I would pick it up if I found it cheap one day.

3.5/5
