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. ...The Accountant - 4K Ultra HD (+ Digital Copy) (Blu-Ray)

I taught Special Needs for over ten years - whether as a function of touring in repertory theatre for schools in Australia or at higher education in college in Lancashire. I had a few Asperger’s over the years - and boy, some were smart. And by the way, the Down’s Syndrome and various other autistic students were actually quite clever in their own way. One just needed to recognise and extract all their potential - because their limits did not compare with mainstream. It’s a completely different approach.
That aside, this film apparently appreciates and acknowledges these so called human mental deficiencies and shows just how becoming socially mainstream can be difficult to overcome while showing how amazingly self competent they can be. Of course there are the (what most people would call negative traits and) sides which the film does not shy away from.
The result is a film that was a huge unexpected hit - little publicity, small budget and just one named star who evidently did the role because of the challenge and not the fee. And it’s thanks to Affleck and co that now it’s paid off. They’re making a sequel with original cast, writer, director and producers.
My one criticism - especially for home watching with a proper surround system - is that the audio dynamic range is very wide and if you have the level loud enough to hear all of the dialog, you're going to annoy the neighbours with the loud bits!
Overall: highly recommended if you're an action thriller fan.
