The spy who bored me.

A welcome throwback spy thriller that is as old-fashioned as it is derivative, but gives Brosnan's fans a taste of the former 007 agent.

Spectrum (St. George, Utah)

The November Man is a second-rate espionage thriller that desperately wants to be in the same tier as Jason Bourne and Jack Ryan, but thanks to dull characters and an unengaging plot, it merely ends up being a flat and forgettable spy outing.

Full Review… | November 24, 2014

It all looks terribly old-fashioned and a little old-hat.

Observer [UK]

While hardly a revelation, it is a welcome return for the actor to the genre that made him famous.

Radio Times

Even though it never feels believable, this twisty spy thriller has such a quick pace that it's consistently entertaining.

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.
