Accountant (2016/Warner 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray w/Blu-ray)
A-/B+ Sound: A- Extras: B Film: B
Affleck has had one of the biggest comebacks in Hollywood as of late,
as he has matured in terms of both an actor and certainly as a
filmmaker in recent years. 2016 was a strong year for him, as he has
been turning out film after film in addition to his newfound duty as
Batman for the DC Universe films, which fans were at first skeptical
of but soon accepting.
Accountant isn't too much of a stretch for Affleck in terms of
being acting - this isn't the first time we have seen him as a near
untouchable vigilante. Though The Accountant proves to be a
film full of other interesting performances as well by stars Anna
Kendrick (Up in the Air), J.K. Simmons (who will soon be the
Jim Gordon to Affleck's Batman in the upcoming Justice League
film), John Lithgow, Jon Bernthal (Wolf of Wall Street, The
Walking Dead) and some strong directing by Gavin O'Connor (the
underrated Jane Got A Gun).
Wolff (Affleck) is an autistic accountant who is much more than meets
the eye. He's a stunning mathematician, rich beyond belief, and not
without a troubled past. After years of successes, Wolff soon finds
that his cover has been blown and FBI Agents are hot on his trail.
Struggling with finding himself and protecting a young woman, Wolff
finds himself amidst the violence that he must bestow to stay alive
and out of jail.
Brothers presents The Accountant in his stunning high
definition two pack which includes the 4K Ultra HD disc and the 1080p
Blu-ray - both of which look fantastic. The 4K 2160p transfer with a
widescreen aspect ratio of 2.39:1 mirrors the original theatrical
presentation with colors and impeccable detail throughout. The 1080p
Blu-ray transfer and a widescreen 2.39:1 aspect ratio isn't quite as
impressive but definitely up to standards. Both discs have a crystal
clear DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 7.1 lossless tracks that bring the
action out quite well with clear dialogue and sound effects,
surprisingly fine in a new era of Dolby Atmos/DTS:X 11.1 soundtracks.
A Digital UV copy is also included.
Accountant in Action
interesting film that I quite enjoyed, I would suggest this to action
and drama fans alike.
