That's what I felt when I read about The November Man, starring Pierce Brosnan. While away from my regular movie theater, Handsome and I had limited movie choices. Sometimes, my home paper rates movies lower than other review sites. Like a C might resemble a B. The whole thing is subjective anyway. So with the limited choice thought, we picked The November Man.
Blurb: An ex-CIA agent is lured out of retirement by an old colleague and finds himself protecting asocial worker who is a potential source as to the truth about the origins of the Chechen War that resulted in the deaths of thousands of innocent people.
Based on the novels by Bill Granger.
Thoughts: I liked the movie. Yes, there are some holes, but not insurmountable. Today's movie audience accepts the holes sometimes and goes for the ride. There is a large body count which I could handle fine. I didn't like the hitting folks with large blunt objects. It's an action spy thriller and went very quickly. I was never bored.
