The Accountant (2016/Warner 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray w/Blu-ray)

Picture: A-/B+ Sound: A- Extras: B Film: B

Ben 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.

The 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).

Christian 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.

Warner 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 with HDR (high dynamic range 10-bit color) 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 lossless soundtracks. A Digital UV copy is also included.

and The Accountant in Action

An interesting film that I quite enjoyed, I would suggest this to action and drama fans alike.
