The November Man (2014)



Critic Consensus: The November Man has a few of the ingredients necessary for a better-than-average spy thriller, making it all the more disappointing that it falls back on dull genre clichés.

The spy who bored me.

Time Out
Top Critic

[The film] very deliberately trades on whatever nostalgia moviegoers might have left for Pierce Brosnan as a secret agent, and ticket-buyers' mileage will vary accordingly.

A few brain cells short and a handful of years too late.

The Film Stage

The only purpose for its existence is potentially giving film students an interesting study in overcompensation.

Consequence of Sound

A poor, poor script can zap the charisma out of any actor. Just look at what The November Man did to Pierce Brosnan.

Directed with old-school grit and clarity.

Audience Reviews for The November Man


Another Russian/Spy blah blah blah
Pierce Brosnan can't even save this drone of a plot!

Film Crazy

Super Reviewer

A stylish, hard-edged and terrifically old-school action-thriller. A crisp, wickedly unpredictable, pulse-racing thrill-ride that's packed with nail-biting suspense and sizzling action. It's the coolest spy thriller in years. It's sharp, brutal and intensely relentless. Director, Roger Donaldson has not lost as his touch when it comes to making an intelligent thriller and keeps the pace fast and moving frequently. A great, grown-up action movie for adults that is a ticking time-bomb of twist and turns that will blow your mind. Finally, we are back into the area of mature action movies. Pierce Brosnan is back in top form regaining his action hero crown. Brosnan's first action film in over a decade and he shows like Liam Neeson, he can still mix it up with anyone and makes you enjoy the ride. Brosnan gives a dynamic and sensational performance, I loved watching him in this and he works great with is co-stars Kurylenko and Bracey. Olga Kurylenko is terrific. Luke Bracey is excellent. An explosively entertaining and awesome movie.

Pierce Brosnan is slick and suave as the title character, but just when you think the film can be described as the same, you leave the theater unfulfilled. Forgetful and familiar, 'November Man' feels like a film you've possibly seen a few hundred times before. That isn't to say it doesn't keep you entertained for 2 hours, however. Just don't expect anything more than that.
