Bettie's Box Office: The November Man Review

Updated: Friday, August 29 2014, 05:25 PM CDT

Pierce Brosnan gets back to his (now-graying) roots as an action hero in The November Man


Brosnan is Peter Devereaux, a jaded, former CIA operative who’s called out of retirement for that one last mission. If that plot sounds familiar, it’s because the script feels like a recycled mashup of a hundred other spy movies – and not necessarily the good ones. 


Devereaux has a hard time telling his friends from his enemies while looking for a refugee girl whose story could bring down the next Russian president. Brosnan is definitely the veteran actor compared to the rest of a mediocre cast, and this role does give him the chance to show a darker, meaner side. But the story has more holes than the trail of bodies he leaves in his wake. Don’t the police ever show up in these movies? 


I’d leave The November Man on your DVD list – that’s probably about when it will come out on DVD anyway.


The November Man opens on August 27 and is rated R for strong violence including a sexual assault, language, sexuality/nudity and brief drug use.
