THE AC­COUN­TANT (MA) Di­rected by: Gavin O'Con­nor Star­ring: Ben Af­fleck, Anna Ken­drick, J.K. Sim­mons Re­view by: Ju­lian Wright In cine­mas: Novem­ber 3 The Ac­coun­tant is a mixed bag.

Of­fer­ing some­thing dif­fer­ent on the fa­mil­iar hit­man story, giv­ing him a men­tal con­di­tion and play­ing with the struc­ture of the film, it ends up be­ing an un­fo­cused ex­er­cise.

It clocks in at more than two hours but rarely feels like it though, with short and sharp ac­tion scenes that pack a wallop and punc­tu­ated with hu­mour.
