Nobody Knows Why Pierce Brosnan's New Movie Is Called 'The November Man'

Oh Pierce Brosnan - isn't there a decent role out there for you somewhere? Can't you delve deep into that old pile of scripts in the corner and dust off a little independent nugget? Maybe we're being a little too hard on the former Bond actor - Love Is All You Need was pretty good - but one thing's for sure: The November Man, Brosnan's latest movie, is a stone-cold dud.

Codenamed after a winter month, the Irish actor plays Peter Devereaux plays a lethal and highly trained ex-CIA agent who has been relaxing into the quiet life in Switzerland. However, when Devereaux is lured out of retirement for one last mission he must protect witness Alice Fournier while being chased by his former friend and CIA protégé David Mason.

"It's called "The November Man," but it's really just another forgettable August release," said Robert Abele of the Los Angeles Times.

"The film is nearly over before you begin to wonder why it's called "The November Man," and giving any thought to the explanation is beside the point," said Ben Kenigsberg of the New York Times.

"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," said Andrew Barker of Variety.

"Bad. Really bad. This wannabe Bond movie features many elements of Brosnan's Bond films except for one: quality. This is easily one of the year's worst films," said John Hanlon Reviews.

'The November Man', directed by The Bank Job's Roger Donaldson, hits cinemas in the U.S this weekend.
