YMMV / The Accountant

Go To

  • Anti-Climax Boss: For all the deaths he instigated, Lamar goes down in seconds. Justified as he's a Non-Action Guy.
    • Despite being the opposite of a Non-Action Guy, after beating up Wolff quite seriously, the moment Braxton instigates his brother enough to force him into action, Wolff blocks three attempted punches then easily takes Braxton down to point a gun in his face.
  • Awesome Music: Mark Isham's score is actually quite good.
  • Captain Obvious Reveal: The fact that Braxton (the merc boss) is Wolff's brother is almost painfully obvious from his second appearance onwards. Any audience reaction to it essentially boils down to "I knew it!".
  • Advertisement:
  • Critical Dissonance: Has a 51% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes and a 51 on Metacritic, with audiences responding to it much more favorably. It grossed a respectable $155 million at the box office for a budget of $44 million and has a CinemaScore rating of "A" (on a scale from "F" at the worst to "A+" at the best) from audiences and a solid 7.4/10 on IMDB.
  • Ensemble Dark Horse: Dana. See Just Here for Godzilla below.
  • Just Here for Godzilla:
    • Some people went to see the movie due to the main protagonist being autistic.
    • A bigger crowd went to see it just because Anna Kendrick was in it and were looking forward to a more dramatic role of hers. Judging from comments on Twitter and Tumblr they weren't disappointed.
  • Memetic Mutation:
  • Moral Event Horizon: As bad as some of the previous things Lamar did, ordering a successful hit on his own sister, who apparently wasn't in on his scheming really crosses the pale.


How well does it match the trope?
