“There are some entertaining things taking place in THE ACCOUNTANT, but it also clearly lacks in some areas.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“Save your receipts. Ben Affleck is THE ACCOUNTANT, and you don’t want to get on his bad side.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“…we’re left with a mess of a movie that could have used a little levity. It’s this lack of self-awareness that’s the real killer here.” – Brett Michel, The Improper Bostonian

“…adds ups to a terrific entertainment and is an asset in Affleck’s acting portfolio.” – Joyce Kulhawik, Joyce’s Choices

“Maybe there’s a leaner version of THE ACCOUNTANT lurking in its slightly overlong structure, but you won’t mind all of its excess when all of its killin’ is so damn good.” – Andy Crump, Paste Magazine

“…while THE ACCOUNTANT is too long, silly and very predictable, if you need something to tide you over until JOHN WICK 2 later this year, you could do a lot worse.” – Kristofer Jenson, C-Ville Weekly

“…you’re largely confused for most of it and then once its all explained you’re likely to be left thinking: ‘Oh, okay. Well, that was alright… but I bet just a regular movie letting us watch this  interesting main character do his thing would’ve been better.’” – Bob Chipman, Geek.com

“WHAT NOW? is consistently funny and worth taking a trip to your local theater.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“…stand-up comedy works best when it feels and sounds off the cuff and spontaneous, and the overt implication of how each beat and inflection must have been pre-determined spoils that illusion.” – Kilian Melloy, Edge Boston

“At its heart is a sweet love story, but around the margins are stories of other sorts — funny, dramatic, tragic, but all of them human and uplifting. ” – Kilian Melloy, Edge Boston
