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.
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
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
film), John Lithgow, Jon Bernthal (Wolf
of Wall Street,
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
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.
The Accountant in Action
interesting film that I quite enjoyed, I would suggest this to action
and drama fans alike.
