The November Man – A spy is never out of the game.
Will Patton————————————————-Perry Weinstein
Lazar Ristovski——————————————-Arkady Federov
Directed by Roger Donaldson.
Screenplay by Michael Finch and Karl Gajdusek.
Based on the Novel “There are no spies” by Bill Granger.
Pierce Brosnan returns to the world of espionage and although he is no longer James Bond he gives us a very entertaining movie. This movie follows Devereaux as he is called back into action by the CIA. He tries to get his wife out of Russia but the plan goes sideways and Devereaux’s wife is slain. As the movie continues we see that his former pupil is actually being used to hunt Devereaux down.
Alice/Milla Mulkovich (Kurylenko) gets dressed up and attacks the Russian Mob she has become quite the leading lady, Quantum of Solace, Oblivion, and now The November Man. She is perfect for the role.
The movie itself is very good we get an edgy spy with Brosnan, not the light fluffy gadget ridden Bond he had become. There are plenty of excellent action sequences and some intelligent spy moves that give this movie some authenticity. You get the feeling you are part of the espionage world. There are a few moments where you have to suspend disbelief but all in all the action is top notch. This movie is a welcome reward for those of us that watched Pierce Brosnan’s last movie “The Love Punch”. I am glad to see he still has what it takes to make a decent movie and this movie is worth a watch.
