One of Affleck's best performances, the movie tells the story of a man who is a savant of sorts, who specializes in math and murder. The Autism factor is an underlying fundamental of his unusual abilities and motivators.

Other than the autistic angle, just a standard though enjoyable action flick.
Successful movie hitmen seem to possess superhuman powers: a savant-like one as is in this case, is even more impressive.

Suprisingly good. Acting not terrific but plot & pace was good. I found it entertaining and engaging. Worked well enough for a sequel to be considered. Somewhat similar to Cruise's Jack Reacher movies.

Begins as one of Affleck's better movies this year but doesn't end that way. Sometimes actors have a penchant to ensure that their characters walk away unscathed. Some may like that but it makes for predictable and unengaging movie fare when all is said and done.

A good story line. As I watched on a Sunday afternoon was a great movie. Don't take too much serious into the plot as you should "Suspense all disbeliefs" to enjoy!
Though the main character having Asperger syndrome is very interesting topic.
So now that might explain some people!

Violence was the first impression when I viewed the trailer. Then it displays how autism results in savant qualities through cultivation; in addition to revealing a caring for others; scene of mother's death, jail buddy death, coworker getting attacked, brother is the opposing gunperson. the Solomon rhythm; listen to that key in film story. The end of the film leaves it open to ??? to be continue. Appreciate that the violence and sex was tamed.
I have a better temperance of Autism when I see one on the street.

Christian Wolff: My father was an officer in the army. Psychological operations. He was concerned that I might be taken advantage of somehow, so he arranged for me to train with a number of specialists throughout my childhood. We lived in 34 homes in 17 years.

Dana Cummings: You moved 34 times?

Christian Wolff: Mm-hm.

Dana Cummings: God, that's extraordinary. I'm sure it must have been difficult. I haven't been anywhere. Well, Cancun - not my proudest moment.

Autism:
1 in 68 children in this country are diagnosed with a form of autism. But if you can put aside for a moment what your pediatrician and all the other NT's have said about your son...
-NT's?
Neuro-typicals. The rest of us. What if we're wrong? What if we've been using the wrong tests to quantify intelligence in children with autism? Your son's not less-than. He's different. Now, your expectations for your son may change over time, they might include marriage, children, self-sufficiency. They might not. But I guarantee you. If we let the world set expectations for our children, they'll start low and they'll stay there. Maybe your son is capable of much more than you know. And maybe... Just maybe... He doesn't understand how to tell us. Or... we haven't yet learned how to listen.

I was trying to connect. I think no matter how different, we're all trying to do the same thing.

Some of my clients are...quite dangerous.
-I kind of consider fairly dangerous myself.
Well, you've made an improvement.

Say you're the head of the Sinaloa Cartel. Now the cartels count their money in eighteen wheelers. But one sunny Mexican day, your in-house money scrubber comes to you and says you're 30 million light. Who can you trust to do the forensic accounting to track your stolen cash? Deloitte & Touche? H & R Block?

Dolores, when you order supplies, do you order online?
-I don't, I just run over to the beads store.
Example?
-I drive, the truck.
The company truck.

Well, initially he was just stealing and garden-variety taxes evasion. But he came up with a better idea. You see, by taking his own money, stealing it and putting it back on his books. It was raining cash. He took the company public at eight dollars a share. A year later it was trading at seventy-five.
