Code named "The November Man," Peter Devereaux (Pierce Brosnan) is an extremely dangerous and highly trained ex-CIA agent who is lured out of quiet retirement on a very personal mission. He must protect valuable witness, Alice Fournier, (Olga Kurylenko) who could expose the truth behind a decades-old conspiracy. He soon discovers this assignment makes him a target of his former friend and CIA protégé David Mason (Luke Bracey). With growing suspicions of a mole in the agency, there is no one Devereaux can trust, no rules and no holds barred. With a screenplay by Michael Finch & Karl Gajdusek based on Bill Granger's novel "There are No Spies" from the bestselling November Man book series, THE NOVEMBER MAN is the ultimate cat-and-mouse game set in the world of international espionage.
Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
The utter lack of originality eventually sinks the movie, and the climax has more howlers than a wolf convention.Jason Clark, Entertainment Weekly, 08.27.2014
It's called "The November Man," but it's really just another forgettable August release.Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times, 08.26.2014
It's a serviceable, pleasingly CGI-unenhanced run-and-gun flick I will find on Encore Action after midnight a year-and-a-half from now and watch for 17 minutes before remembering I've already seen it.Chris Klimek, NPR, 08.29.2014
Often frustrating and at times incomprehensible, the Bourne/Bond clone keeps the pulse racing but ultimately fails to satisfy.Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle, 08.26.2014
