The critical consensus

The end result has the loose ends of a superhero origins film, with the promise of more to follow. It's a very strange film that just doesn't add up.

**(*)(*)(*)Allan Hunter, The List, 31/10/2016

The result is a film that, in spite of its title, simply doesn’t add up properly.

**(*)(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 02/11/2016

The Accountant may never quite add up, but it’s hardly meant as taxing viewing and its flaws certainly don’t detract too much from the overall enjoyment.

***(*)(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 03/11/2016

The Accountant has to be one of the year’s strangest films.

***(*)(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 04/11/2016

Affleck plays a maths genius who also happens to be hilariously good at martial arts in this convoluted but watchable origins-story-style action thriller.

***(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 03/11/2016

Ben Affleck impresses as a maths savant in a thriller marred by inconsistencies.

***(*)(*)Wendy Ide, The Observer, 06/11/2016

The Accountant is as confusing and seemingly futile as an HMRC tax credit form — and it only takes marginally less time to complete.
