Roger Donaldson was so impressed by Belgrade, that he immediately saw it as a very real and tangible character in the film, and set out to take advantage of the rich variety and texture the city backdrop offered. The aim became to dispel the image of a grey and depressing ex-Communist metropolis, and to present the city as it really is: colorful, vibrant, and with a hugely mixed and often unique cultural and architectural palette.

When I first viewed the trailer for "The November Man", I thought it looked average and kind of like a straight to DVD movie. So my girlfriend and I were looking for a movie to watch and I suggested this and went in with low/average expectations. I must say, I was surprised by the movie and how entertaining and thrilling it was.
First things first, Pierce Brosnan proves he still has that charisma and flair which most people seen when he played James Bond, he brings that same level of personality to the role and is just pure bad ass and cool as "The November Man". I felt the actors all did a wonderful job from Luke Bracey as the cocky, young, and easy to hate protégé to the smoking hot Olga Kurylenko. The story may seem predictable and simple, but is still intriguing,thrilling and provides for some edge of the seat excitement. The action comes fast, bloody and unexpectedly. The scenes are shot with crisp and it will invigorate your adrenaline rush for all the action junkies out there. Like many of the reviews have pointed out, the story takes some twists and turns which may leave the viewer confused. It still provides an above average, edge of your seat, action thriller.
Overall, a decent popcorn flick that will surely entertain. It has a little bit of everything. Action, suspense, thrills, drama, humor and is surprisingly quite entertaining. It will surely make you gasp or jump at least once! Don't listen to Rotten Tomatoes, go watch and judge for yourself.
