Trivia

Production Designer Kevin Kavanaugh said of this movie's making: "We really wanted to mix it up, and not just stick with one style, so we used a lot of different 'character' buildings, different color palettes, and a mix of the old and new for dressing the sets. Detail is everything, even if the audience doesn't spot it, the actors need to be working in a set that feels authentic, and with Director of Photography Romain Lacourbas' influence, we had many different lighting schemes too. So I came up with as much variety as I could, and that was a direct influence of Belgrade itself. We had the city as a huge backlot, and it's an incredibly appealing place to shoot." See more »

Goofs

I liked it
23 September 2014 | by ln75See all my reviews

I liked "The November Man." I thought the plot was straightforward, and when it wasn't then a character made a statement explaining what was happening. So many of these types of movies just have characters running around shooting at one another without details being tied up along the way. I did not feel that way about this movie.

I found myself rooting for the good characters, and having fun running alongside the hero. No one is going to win an Oscar, but the acting was well done for this type of movie.

It was a good 1.5 hours spent watching a spy thriller where the resolution at the end leaves me without any lingering questions.

The movie plot/tempo felt familiar given that I have read the books. I am hoping that more movies with this character are made.

P.S. It's a movie, not a film--ease up fellow critics.
