An ex-C.I.A. operative is brought back in on a very personal mission and finds himself pitted against his former pupil in a deadly game involving high level C.I.A. officials and the Russian President-elect.
Peter Devereaux is a former CIA agent who is asked by the man he worked for to extract a woman who is in Russia and is presently close to a man running for President, who is believed to have committed crimes during the Chechen war. She can give them the name of someone who can prove it. His friend says that she will only come to him. So he goes and she gets the info and tries to get out but the man finds out and tries to stop her.Written by
The film's source novel is the seventh novel in "The November Man" book series. Pierce Brosnan used to play James Bond Agent 007. See more »
The scenes that happen in Moscow with the van chase were filmed in Belgrade, Serbia, which can be seen from the street signs and cars. Some signs were changed to Russian though (e.g., Parking entrance), but there are lots of smaller signs that give it away. See more »

Good movie, don't listen to the haters. It takes a bit of intelligence to follow the story. They just couldn't cut it.
I am reading so many negative reviews on this movie, but they are clearly caused by poor judgment and lack of attention.
The story builds up nicely. The characters aren't underdeveloped at all. However, that character development happens mostly in the last 20 minutes or so. This is a movie that is unfolding through several threads, coming together at the end, clarifying the characters.
I do not need to add any words about the plot. It may seem puzzling to those who are used to be fed the cliché clues, overstating what comes next, but I think it was a very good plot and well executed. True, there should have been some more depth in the acting to enjoy but that would contradict the cold professionalism which is inherent to CIA, hit men and war criminals.
I say, make sure your IQ is three digits worth and enjoy this movie which does evoke 007 much, but harsher.
