Synopsis


The November Man
A legendary ex-CIA agent emerges from retirement to protect a witness, but his mission lands him in the sights of his former protégé in this cat-and-mouse spy thriller based on the novel There are no Spies by Bill Granger. Having serves the CIA loyally for years, Peter Devereaux (Pierce Brosnan) retreates to Switzerland to live out the rest of his days in peace. Peter finds himself drawn back into the fray, however, when he's tasked with watching after Alice Fournier (Olga Kurylenko) - a witness who some very powerful people would rather see silenced. Meanwhile, Peter meets his match in the form of David Mason (Luke Bracey), the very agent he once trained. Now, with the bullets flying from all sides, Peter must survive long enough to protect Alice, and root out the mole who has put his entire mission in jeopardy. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Right off the bat: am a fan of this type of "guy against the system" movie, and of Pierce Brosnan in particular. The general concept has been done many times - and often recently: "retired" agent lured / forced back into action by duplicitous former boss (or Whatever). So the basics are familiar: but if done well (or well-enough) still make for an enjoyable viewing. Found "November Man" enjoyable enough to plunk down a few hard-earned dollars - and regret that the initially hoped-for sequel seems unlikely to ever happen.

    November Man I was exactly what I expected. Pierce Brosnan walking around being a bad***. Problem is, this isn't the 80s-90s and he's not Arnold Schwarzenegger. The plot line has a few twists that are somewhat predictable; even if you don't predict them they at not at all surprising when they occur. The blu ray itself is a fine example, especially with great video performance. Some of the outdoor scenes are stunning as a lot of shooting was done in beautiful Belgrade. Overall, not my favorite 2014 release but still a good watch.

    I was really entertained by this movie. As many have, I grew up with Pierce Bronsan as James Bond so this movie was a real treat to have him back in a similar role. In this film he plays an elder statesman spy so to speak but shows he hasn't lost his edge. Pierce did a great job especially with the layoff from action movies. I give it four stars. The story and other actors weren't too bad, but it's Bronsan that really carries the movie. If you are a Pierce and/or Bond fan get this movie.

    Pierce Brosnan's character is an ex-CIA agent who is brought back into the world of spies to help an agent and friend from the past get out of Russia with vital information. A witness to a mass murder has been targeted for elimination by a Russian killer which he tries to keep alive while he is being hunted by a former friend and protege for his involvement in trying to help his one friend's escape from Russia. In the shadows there is a mole who wants the witness and Brosnan dead.

    Finally! Another well written thinking man's action drama flick that isn't 007 or Bourne! Others come close and are very good in their own right (Taken among them). However, this movie has a rawness that reminds me of early Connery/Bond movies without the gadgets. Well throughout and executed dialog, great action scenes, very good story line, one of the best(although a smidge weaker than I had hoped) protagonist, and a modern-day plausible action movie.

    This movie is a different kind of Pierce Bronson, James Bond Movie.. It follows Daniel Greg's Brute style of James Bond, as being cold blooded with no ties to almost everyone.. Pierce was allowed to roam free, killing people as he sees fit, without regard to anyone.. No justice for king and crown here.. Besides he used to be a CIA operative anyway. If you want to see Pierce live out his dark side, I suggest buying this DVD.

    Bought my Samsung 60" TV for my grandchildren so mainly they could play there Wii games and video games on it, but my wife and I have truly enjoyed it more than anything the past few years. The payment plan Best Buy offered was easy on our budget and we paid it off in no time.

    Along the same lines as 3 Days to Kill, November Man's plot feels stretched a little too thin. There's very little background/history, a hasty set up and then suddenly a vendetta and some chasing. The action is fairly good, the acting is ok, but overall it felt like this movie was made just because it could be, and for no other reason.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
