This weekend, Pierce Brosnan rejoins the action-star ranks with The November Man, a new thriller from director Roger Donaldson (The Bank Job) about a retired CIA agent lured back into the game for one last mission. But if the sight of the former James Bond coolly wielding a pistol reminds you of Brosnan's past secret-agent glories, we're here to remind you that his filmography is about so much more than characters with a certain set of skills; in fact, he's been part of a long series of critically acclaimed -- and eclectic -- projects. How many of your favorites match up with the critics? Let's start the countdown and find out!
