The Accountant (2016) the-accountant

Crime/Drama   2h 8m

Director: Gavin O’Connor

Produced by: Mark Williams

6/10 stars

This movie features Ben Affleck as Christian Wolff who, along with his brother, was raised by his father, who trained him in martial arts and many different skills. Now as an adult he is an accountant who is very smart with numbers, because of his disability. He works undercover, where he uses his fighting skills on bad guys.

I think this movie is fun, action-packed and really good. It is violent in some scenes. If you like action, drama and crime movies, you should see this film.

Hacksaw Ridge (2016)

hacksaw-ridge

Biography, Drama, Romance   2h 11m

Director: Mel Gibson

7/10 stars

It has a lot good actors in it, like Hugo Weaving and Rachel Griffith. This movie is true story about Desmond Doss (Andrew Garfield) who refuses to carry a weapon and kill because of his beliefs as a Christian. He joins the army as a paramedic; he faces many difficulties and risks his life to save others.

I was inspired by this movie, because of the way he stood for himself and his beliefs. The beginning is more light-hearted but by the end there are many violent war scenes. If you like war films, heroic stories and good acting, you should see this film.

Arrival (2016)  
arrival
Sci-fi, thriller     1h 58m

Director: Denis Villeneuve

3/10 stars

Alien spaceships appear around the world one day and everyone is confused and scared. Starring Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner and Forest Whitaker who play people sent to explore one of the spaceships and talk to the aliens.

There is not a lot of action, and sometimes got a bit weird.  But the characters are the best part of the movie, the acting was brilliant. If you like movies that make you think and space movies, you should see this movie. If you like this movie you should watch Interstellar (2014) or Gravity (2013).
