november_manReviews for this film from our members:

  • José Arce @ [Spanish]
    • Excerpt: Dos décadas después de huir despavoridos de Dante´s Peak, Roger Donaldson y Pierce Brosnan unen fuerzas para ofrecer un thriller soso y poco esforzado en lo técnico y lo humano. Un rollo de sobremesa.
  • Nicholas Bell @
    • Excerpt: like a semi-talented juggler that takes on one ball too many, Donaldson’s film of furiously committed and concurrent clusters end up smashing into each other
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: …an OK time passer.
  • Jim Dixon @
    • Excerpt: From the eastern European locations to Marco Beltrami’s score, “The November Man” has a major case of Bourne envy. It doesn’t really have the budget for the gigantic, action set pieces that are one of the hallmarks of the Bourne movies, and so director Roger Donaldson ups the ante on the violence, which is the primary reason for the movie’s well-deserved R rating.
  • Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
    • Excerpt: There is a great amount of confusion about the central character in The November Man, which is quite at odds with the character himself.
  • [New – 4/2/15] | Panagiotis (Pete) Gkaris @ [Greek]
  • Susan Granger @
    • Excerpt: Slick ‘n’ sturdy, stumbling only occasionally….
  • Vadym Grygoriev @ [Ukrainian]
  • Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
    • Excerpt: Will give you your spy thriller fix but nothing else. Treads in the safe waters of spy films past rather than exploring any new territory.
  • Ben Kendrick @ Screen Rant
    • Excerpt: In a genre where smarts and thrills are pivotal, The November Man delivers only routine (and uninspired) spy drama.
  • Kristin Dreyer Kramer @
  • Dan Lybarger @
    • Excerpt: Meat Loaf once sang that “Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad,” but in the case of The November Man, having an able leading man and a proficient director can’t make up for a limp script.
  • Matthew McKernan @ FilmWhinge
    • Excerpt: Bill Granger wrote the November Man novels during the Cold War, but that is not the reason that this film feels so dated and so tired. It is simply down to laziness.
  • Brent McKnight @ Paste Magazine
    • Excerpt: There’s nothing egregiously wrong with “The November Man,” but there’s nothing particularly remarkable about it, either.
  • Jamie S. Rich @ DVD Talk
    • Excerpt: The kind of thing you probably won’t watch again, but that you don’t mind having watched the first time, because, hey, at least it delivered what it promised.
  • Diego Salgado @ Guía del Ocio [Spanish]
  • Frank Swietek @ One Guys Opinion
    • Excerpt: A pastiche of old-fashioned espionage cliches, clumsily stitched together and even more ineptly executed.
