Pierce Brosnan is back in action in The November Man. In many ways it’s a reprise of his Bond role, an action-packed drama involving a retired CIA operative searching to unravel the final clue to a decades old conspiracy. His ex-pupil is pitted against him and there’s a babe to die for, slinking about in a mini dress made out of a handkerchief. Oh and yup, there’s blood, car chases, shoot outs and all that stuff too.
The film is obviously seeking to capitalise on the big bucks made by Red and other oldie-action-flicks. And since it’s based on a series of novels by Bill Granger, there’s plenty of material for further outings of the Peter Devereaux character, should there be enough bums on seats to tempt producers.
