November Man is a hard edged mother of a ride that demands you pay attention. I went back and watched it a second time because it was just to intense to figure out every layer and twist. Between the velocity of pace and the multiple story lines, I guessing these writers must be gamers in their time off.
Finally, this is the Brosnan we have been waiting to see. A hard man with only a drop of humanity left that is closer to a bass ass killer than a government agent. And definitely not a spy who would boat in on a mission, slowly gliding through hundreds of torch lights, to get information. Olga is another revelation. Admittedly, Quantum was not her finest hour, but, Alice, her character in this film, might be one of the best performances of her career.
That brings me to Luke Bracey. Masculine, likable and a charming opponent for Pierce. Not a star yet, but someone to take note of. Another cool aspect of the film is that it is shot in Serbia which feels like the perfect place to shoot this kind of movie. All the actors were amazing including Lazar, the Russian president elect.
This is a spy film that makes you feel like you are witnessing real events. Let's hope they continue to make more.
