Plot Summary

Christian Wolff (Ben Affleck) is a mathematics savant with more affinity for numbers than people.

    All the more frustrating because of its conceptual freshness and Ben Affleck's sly turn in the title role, this sleek action thriller ends up delivering standard shoot-'em-up goods after initially suggesting it might provide something rather different. show more

    On the whole, it's a mess of action clich├ęs built on top of a shaky premise that's so out-of-this-world that it'll either enrage you - or make you laugh. I chose the latter. I'm not ashamed to admit that I had a lot of fun at this movie. show more
