More Info:
  • Steven Rea

    An efficient, if not exactly inspiring, espionage thriller, full of high-tech gadgetry (surveillance drones! flash drives!) and low-tech action (car chases! shootouts! a shovel to the head!).

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • James Rocchi

    A nicely-made action-thriller, one with analog car chases and non-digital explosions, like a long tall glass of cold water in a world that mostly offers you Bud Light or Crystal Pepsi. Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    A predictable espionage thriller undercut further by loose ends left dangling, November Man is worth seeing only for Pierce Brosnan's dynamic lead performance.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    Appropriately pulpy — fuss-free and fast.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Barbara VanDenburgh

    Nothing fresh is being brought to the table, but it's a sufficient bit of fun for anyone who longs for the days of Brosnan's spy swagger.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • John DeFore

    Though the film's cat-and-mouse scenes hardly compare to those in a Bourne movie, they're enjoyable and only occasionally ridiculous.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Jesse Hassenger

    Too frequently, the movie also treats its female characters as props to be shuffled in and out of danger as the screenplay requires — a nasty tendency that undermines its ongoing (and murkily argued) debate about whether a successful agent can maintain his humanity.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Marc Mohan

    Makes good, unobtrusive use of its European locations, and has a couple of well-orchestrated urban chase scenes. But, even in these days of renewed U.S.-Russian tensions, its Cold War demeanor feels anachronistic, and its simple cynicism comes off as recycled and cheap.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    The November Man feels like just about every B-grade spy thriller that has ever been committed to the silver screen.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    The November Man is diligently executed, and Brosnan gives a fine performance as an action hero who can convey a character’s thought processes as well as deliver a punch.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    The November Man is one of those thrillers that grows progressively more incoherent, and it simply isn’t fast enough to glide over its gaping narrative holes.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Jason Clark

    The utter lack of originality eventually sinks the movie.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Matt Zoller Seitz

    The November Man wants to be taken seriously, except when it doesn't. This creates viewer whiplash. The movie is confused and often untrustworthy. Full Review
  • Peter Keough

    Sadly, the film rapidly devolves into an AARP version of a Jason Bourne-like vendetta, only bloodier and less meaningful.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    Although The November Man shows us some attractive people in motion, the cumulative effect leaves us neither shaken nor stirred.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Ben Kenigsberg

    There is something to be said for a thriller that rips along with no regard for anything other than its own pace, coasting on Mr. Brosnan’s blunter-than-Bond suavity and Ms. Kurylenko’s beauty.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Nikola Grozdanovic

    As far as the spy genre goes, Pierce Brosnan’s The November Man is more filler than thriller.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Ken McIntyre

    Pierce Brosnan, a long way from his Bond days, huffs and puffs his way through a boilerplate thriller that finds his ex-CIA hitman, Peter Devereaux, retired to a coffee shop in Switzerland.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Jordan Hoffman

    There’s no way around this: The November Man is asinine. It is not without its pleasures – if you like seeing people get hit in the face with shovels, that is – but it might be the most irresponsibly dumb spy thriller I’ve seen in some time.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • John Anderson

    In their engaging, fast-paced and ultimately ludicrous combo of espionage and mayhem, the makers of The November Man give us a very Putin-like villain in Arkady Federov (veteran Serbian actor Lazar Ristovski).

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Alan Scherstuhl

    As far as escapist fluff laced with totally unnecessary real-world horror goes, The November Man isn't wretched.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    The November Man doesn’t pause for a moment’s breath, which tightens up the action at the expense of clarity, character development, wit, politics, themes, subtext, and all the other things that can go into a thriller besides bang-bang and crash-crash.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Eric Henderson

    Roger Donaldson embellishes an already overly plotty scenario with hollowly attractive genre superfluities.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    A humorless, muddled, bloody and generally unpleasant thriller.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    The rest of the film couldn’t convince a sixth-grader it might happen. CIA agents search a home for evidence but leave the front door unlocked and unguarded, so Devereaux sneaks in and knocks them out.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Robert Abele

    It's called The November Man, but it's really just another forgettable August release.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    Even in the lazy days of late August, this movie is hardly worth the price of popcorn.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Andrew Barker

    Runs through spy-movie cliches with such dogged obligation that it often plays like a YouTube compilation of scenes from older, better thrillers, generating little overall tension and only occasionally approaching basic coherence.

    Variety Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    The November Man turns out to be the classic August movie: a triumph of competence over imagination and schlock over taste. Its highest value lies in reminding filmgoers that fall can’t come too soon.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Peter Hartlaub

    Often frustrating and at times incomprehensible, the Bourne/Bond clone keeps the pulse racing but ultimately fails to satisfy.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Alonso Duralde

    This is the sort of film where the plot and even the action become so uninteresting that you start asking plausibility questions.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    This one resembles a James Bond film about as much as Belgrade resembles London.
