Storyline

Christian Wolff is a math savant with more affinity for numbers than people. Behind the cover of a small-town CPA office, he works as a freelance accountant for some of the world's most dangerous criminal organizations. With the Treasury Department's Crime Enforcement Division, run by Ray King, starting to close in, Christian takes on a legitimate client: a state-of-the-art robotics company where an accounting clerk has discovered a discrepancy involving millions of dollars. But as Christian uncooks the books and gets closer to the truth, it is the body count that starts to rise. Written by Happy_Evil_Dude

Trivia

The film is set in Plainfield, Illinois as well as Chicago, and mentions Naperville, Illinois, Kankakee, Illinois, and Joliet, Illinois, but was actually shot on-location in Atlanta, Georgia, due to their tax incentives being better than Illinois. See more »

Goofs

When Chris first shows up to work at Living Robotics, Dana is there to greet him. No work has been done, other than Dana having collated financial files. Next scene we see them sharing space for lunch; I am assuming about 4 hours has passed. Finally we see Chris back in his work room, getting his pens out and preparing to work. But no work has been done. Did it take Chris 4 hours to decide to eat lunch? See more »

Excellent
25 February 2017 | by baburgener-13160See all my reviews

This is a wonderful movie. A lot more of an action flick than title suggests. Was a pleasant surprise as plot unfolded. Ben Affleck is perfect for this part. Well written script and good acting by all. Nice use of flashbacks for character development. Many twists and turns and a bit of a surprise ending. Watch it! You won't be disappointed.
