The November Man Reviews

September 5, 2019
Like a semi-talented juggler that takes on one ball too many, Donaldson's film of furiously committed and concurrent clusters end up smashing into each other to concoct a rather silly and sallow end product.

It's rather hard to remember the Man of November: budget-Bourne action, stale plot.
April 8, 2019
The film falters most in its dual purposes: mentor/mentee cat and mouse versus international conspiracy leading to a puppet Russian president with a pension for under aged war refugees.

The November Man is diverting and Brosnan's fans should be pleased; it just isn't the kind of engrossing, thoughtful drama that its elements suggest it intends to be.

By the half-way point in the film, the outcome already is determined, but you still have to remain in your seat, painfully watching as the characters catch up to what you already know.
April 15, 2016
[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.
March 20, 2016
A few brain cells short and a handful of years too late.
September 2, 2015
The only purpose for its existence is potentially giving film students an interesting study in overcompensation.
July 20, 2015
A poor, poor script can zap the charisma out of any actor. Just look at what The November Man did to Pierce Brosnan.
May 14, 2015
Promising start, but by the midway point the film devolves to a generic action film with themes you've seen countless times already.
November 24, 2014
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.
November 9, 2014
It all looks terribly old-fashioned and a little old-hat.
November 6, 2014
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 19, 2014
Director Roger Donaldson has made decent thrillers before, but stuck with dud material like this, The November Man is one to forget.
