Spy v Sigh.
November 4, 2014
The spy who bored me.
November 3, 2014
Such lameness is all the more disappointing considering how much more tightly Donaldson once pulled together a similar package in the 1987 Kevin Costner spy drama No Way Out.
November 3, 2014
Ploughing through this tedious by-the-numbers thriller is less Bond, more of a bind.
November 3, 2014
Serviceable, but entirely predictable.
November 1, 2014
Brosnan shows enough in the action scenes to make this an effective audition piece for the next Expendables movie but there's nothing here you haven't seen in countless Eurotrash thrillers.
October 16, 2014
...a misguided thriller that squanders its promising opening stretch...
September 21, 2014
A standard by-the-numbers spy thriller, "The November Man" rides squarely on the broad shoulders of Pierce Brosnan
September 19, 2014
Director Roger Donaldson has made decent thrillers before, but stuck with dud material like this, The November Man is one to forget.
September 16, 2014
Donaldson punctuates numerous scenes with sub-John Woo physical calisthenics and slow-motion violence that does nothing to enhance the intensity and everything to divert our attention
September 14, 2014
This is R-rated territory. So move over, Bond and Bourne.
September 11, 2014
Bronson nails his tough, ruthless, bleak character
September 7, 2014
The pace of the film is fast and it generates a lot of tension. The acting is solid, led by Brosnan, who handles this role with aplomb, along with veteran actor Bill Smitrovich ("Ted") who plays CIA section chief Hanley.
September 5, 2014
This formulaic espionage thriller of vigilante justice and international intrigue only serves to remind moviegoers of better days for both the star and the genre.

Codename: The Spy Who Staggered Up From The Dead. This dismal little affair slops into cynicism and uncaring brutality (to women). Clichs abound; hi-tech's whipped out whenever convenient; chases and showdowns seem genre-formulaic and rote.
September 4, 2014
The stale stench of late summer is hitting movie theaters.
September 3, 2014
For a guy who used to be James Bond, Brosnan makes a surprisingly unconvincing superspy and the story is a meatheaded misfire riddled with loose ends, plot holes and action clichs.
September 1, 2014
It's a thrill seeing Brosnan in action once again.
August 29, 2014
A scatterbrained rehash of From Russia with Love, with all of the Russia and nothing to love.
August 29, 2014
The agent is called "The November Man" because "after he passes through, nothing lives" - but it's doubtful there will be more movies after this one. It almost seems as though the character did a number on his own story.
