Full of action, great acting, and nice pacing, this movie has twists you may not see coming (I didn't---well, maybe one), and never lets up till the end.
Ben Affleck plays an accountant who was diagnosed as autistic since childhood , but possesses extremely high intelligence .
Director Gavin O'Connor takes a great deal of care in mounting Bill Dubuque's extremely intricate screenplay that might take a little too much time in setting up Christian's childhood as an autistic savant and how it affected his relationship with his family, but once the story gets going, the viewer is given very little time to breathe or try to figure out what appears to be red herrings and plot holes at every turn; however, I was delighted to learn that by the time final reel commences, all questions and plot holes that had been nagging at me were tied up in an effective little cinematic bow that left this reviewer a little spent, but satisfied.
