Big Ben is back in action as a mathlete/assassin in theaters this week, plus we've got a superhero and a bit of stand-up comedy. Coming this Friday we've got the The Accountant, Kevin Hart: What Now? and Max Steel. It's gonna be a Rotten Week!

Just remember, I'm not reviewing these movies, but rather predicting where they'll end up on the Tomatometer. Let's take a look at This Rotten Week has to offer.

The Accountant
Rotten Watch Prediction
51%

I've got a bad feeling about The Accountant. Sure, on the surface you have Ben Affleck playing this weird mashup of Rain Man and Jason Bourne, which seems like it should be cool enough. The production level appears like they went for it budget-wise, and I suspect the studio has high hopes it'll cross-appeal between hardcore action folks and "good movie" lovers. But something just feels off. I don't know if it's Affleck not speaking at all during the trailer or just the confusing tone/nature of the proposed plot. Maybe I just don't get it.

Director Gavin O'Connor has helmed a couple of well-received sports movies in the past with both Miracle (80%) and Warrior (82%), but The Accountant looks like a whole new animal for the filmmaker - and it's hard to say exactly if he's standing on perfectly solid ground. There aren't any early reviews available yet to help determine what the ultimate outcome will be, but I can see it playing closer to his work in Pride and Glory (35%). I want it to be good, but I've got some concerns.
