Jack Reacher must uncover the truth behind a major government conspiracy in order to clear his name. On the run as a fugitive from the law, Reacher uncovers a potential secret from his past that could change his life forever.
Christian Wolff is a math savant with more affinity for numbers than people. Behind the cover of a small-town CPA office, he works as a freelance accountant for some of the world's most dangerous criminal organizations. With the Treasury Department's Crime Enforcement Division, run by Ray King, starting to close in, Christian takes on a legitimate client: a state-of-the-art robotics company where an accounting clerk has discovered a discrepancy involving millions of dollars. But as Christian uncooks the books and gets closer to the truth, it is the body count that starts to rise. Written by
After wandering around Christian Wolff's back garden where there is mud, grass and leaves on the ground, Ray King is in Christian's house, he sits down & puts his feet on a table where we can see that there is not a single speck of dirt on his boots.

I love it when people tell me how to do my job.

I did enjoy this quite a bit, but there were just too many twists and plot changes for me to be able to get fully invested in
"How do you know what to do here? Why are you prepared for this?" When Dana Cummings (Kendrick) is sent to assist a loner accountant (Affleck) with a talent for math she thinks its just like any other job. The more he digs the more he finds unusual discrepancies. While he tries to find and figure out what is wrong with these books he is also being hunted for fraud. Soon the two worlds clash, and Dana realizes he is more than a quiet number cruncher. This is a movie I was looking forward to. I was expecting a tense assassin movie, but I was not 100% correct. The movie is very good and I recommend it, but it is also all over the place. It never really settles in on what it wants to be. Once it settles into a plot it changes and becomes about something else entirely. The movie ends up being a mix of many different movies. Affleck plays a Jason Bourne type lethal killer with the mind of Will Hunting, all while being a type of Boondock Saint. It may sound like I'm bashing the movie but I'm not and I did enjoy this quite a bit, there were just too many twists and plot changes for me to be able to get fully invested in. That hurt the movie a little for me. Overall, good and worth watching but I was hoping for better. I give this a B+.
