In Gavin O'Connor's "The Accountant," Ben Affleck stars as a paper-pushing CPA – roughly the exact opposite of Schwarzenegger or Stallone – who gets his shot at action hero stardom."The Accountant" has much grander goals of implausibility.The film comes from a script by Bill Dubuque that, come tax season, may well be at serious risk of an audit. It's about a secretive, autistic accountant for prominent criminals who's a muscular, military-grade hit man by hobby, plagued by his father's relentlessly militaristic parenting, who becomes embroiled in a robotic prostheses company's bid to go public. What "The Accountant" is, is one of the more unlikely movies to repeat the phrase "Just the Renoir"."The Accountant" is, if nothing else, singular in lending an action-movie cliche an absurdly peculiar and elaborate backstory.
