The dvd : November Man


For some people, action movies have to be an endless display of martial arts, who kills faster and who uses more guns at a time. But I prefer that they also have a good storyline to justify the use of force and bloodshed. If you like this kind, then watch this one.
The movie stars an ex-CIA agent Devereaux (Pierce Brosnan), who goes on a personal mission when he learnt that a spy he recruited and helped raise his child is in trouble. He steps in to save her but fails. Thankfully, he is left with information leading him to the bad guys. That is how he meets Mila Filipova (Olga Kurylenko), the sole survivor willing to make her tormentors pay. Together they attempt to get in the way of two powerful men, a Russian president, and a CIA top official Hanley (Bill Smitrovich) who he thought had his best interests.
Something about Hanley reminds me of Brad Bellick, (Wade Williams) the prison officer in Prison Break. I like the assassin’s attitude, though we do not get her name. She does not allow hotel attendants to carry her bags, does not say thanks and just throws her taxi fare on her seat. She is something. I would love to see her dominate a movie with the same attitude. Just like many such movies, evil is justified but thankfully good triumphs. And how that happens is an interesting ride. This movie though is not appropriate for the younger ones because of two adult scenes and blood spills.
