Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, as I stated in theupcoming movie list I put out a couple weeks ago, this was one of the movies I was most excited for this year. I loved the first movie, there are so many memorable moments, and Tom Cruise’s portrayal made you feel like you were truly seeing Jack Reacher come to life. That being said, I was disappointed when I left the movie theater this past weekend.
I haven’t been to the movies in a while now. There hasn’t been a movie that I really felt the need to go right away and see in theaters. That is until I started compiling my list of movies that I am looking forward to a couple weeks ago (check that out here), and I came across Ben Affleck’s new movie ‘The Accountant’. This seemed like a refreshing and smart action movie (lately you can’t go wrong with an Affleck flick either). I was not disappointed. When I wrote about looking forward to this movie I joked about it being similar to ‘Good Will Hunting’, and I wasn’t far off. It’s as if you took that movie and mixed it with Jason Borne. Which unsurprisingly makes for a great movie. The story follows Christian Wolff (Ben Affleck) a math genius with a form of high functioning autism. He assists some of the most dangerous people in the world with uncooking their books.
