Pierce Brosnan in The November Man
Here’s a vintage 1980s thriller nobody remembers because it won’t open till next month. Based on an ’80s espionage novel. Directed by Roger Donaldson who made two terrific ’80s thrillers, Smash Palace and No Way Out. Starring Pierce Brosnan who made ’90s Bond movies that were still spinning their wheels in the ’80s. “The November Man” even sounds like a classic ’80s thriller title. Donaldson made The Bank Job in 2008 and it, too, felt like a better-than-average ’80s thriller. There are worse things than better-than-average ’80s thrillers.
