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
Peter Devereaux is a man who is not only forced back into battle, but everything, seems to unfortunately come full circle when his one-time protégé is on the hunt for him. This complex character was a great fit for Pierce Brosnan, who executively produced the project and said: "For me it seemed like a great idea. As an actor, you go on gut instinct and intuition most of the time, but Bill Granger's work is really solid. Devereaux is very well defined, and the writers thoroughly invested in every nuance of the book. Audiences love this genre, and when it has heart, a real real real sense of human drama, and great action scenes, then you hope you have a good film." 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 »
I'm going back to work.
[takes her place at the table]
Don't worry, I checked her out.
Scenario: Agent falls in love with girl. Agent runs an op. Girl gets kidnapped. The other guys want to know the agent's source. What does he do? What do they do to the girl, hmm?
Is there a point to this?
Yeah, over your right shoulder.
[seeing another agent]
Us or them?
How the fuck should I know? Does it really matter? You feel the need for a relationship? Get a dog.

Surprisingly Good - Pierce Own's It!!
When I first viewed the trailer for "The November Man", I thought it looked average and kind of like a straight to DVD movie. So my girlfriend and I were looking for a movie to watch and I suggested this and went in with low/average expectations. I must say, I was surprised by the movie and how entertaining and thrilling it was.
First things first, Pierce Brosnan proves he still has that charisma and flair which most people seen when he played James Bond, he brings that same level of personality to the role and is just pure bad ass and cool as "The November Man". I felt the actors all did a wonderful job from Luke Bracey as the cocky, young, and easy to hate protégé to the smoking hot Olga Kurylenko. The story may seem predictable and simple, but is still intriguing,thrilling and provides for some edge of the seat excitement. The action comes fast, bloody and unexpectedly. The scenes are shot with crisp and it will invigorate your adrenaline rush for all the action junkies out there. Like many of the reviews have pointed out, the story takes some twists and turns which may leave the viewer confused. It still provides an above average, edge of your seat, action thriller.
Overall, a decent popcorn flick that will surely entertain. It has a little bit of everything. Action, suspense, thrills, drama, humor and is surprisingly quite entertaining. It will surely make you gasp or jump at least once! Don't listen to Rotten Tomatoes, go watch and judge for yourself.
