Thumbs up The Accountant

So I finally watched this recently and I can easily say that it is one of the best films I have seen this year! Ben Affleck is surely rising up the ranks as one of the best in the business. Like Cruise, he may never win an Oscar, (I can actually see him getting one though) but he chooses his roles very well and brings his own unmistakable touch each time. He really caught my attention with The Town which he starred and directed!
If you have not seen this, and you appreciate the genre, do yourself a favor. 4 Stars!

I saw it a few weeks ago and definitely enjoyed it. I agree, he has been picking roles in his most recent movies very well.

Pretty sure Affleck has two Oscars. Just not for acting.

I forgot about Argo and Good Will Hunting. He really is a great director. I see him becoming the best in the business if he isn't already.

Definitely! They could've explored and I wish they would have into his dealings with certain previous clients.

Big Marcus, what took so long?

I've seen it twice and it gets better each time! Fantastic story, great character development, and a few good twists!

I hope it becomes a series!

I was pleasantly surprised. Reminded me of the old "Jason Bourne" mixed with some "Shooter"

Very good movie

No kidding bro! Wow it was great. I plan to watch it again for sure. It's one of those movies that I can watch over when I'm channel surfing.

Don't you hate channel surfing, seeing a good movie then looking up and it's 2 hrs later?

Happens to me all the time when I'm decompressing!
