The November Man is full of surprises

5 second plot: An ex-CIA killer is re-activated to extract a spy, who happens to be the love of his life. But she gets killed. He goes after the boys and girls that did it but runs into a whole lot more trouble than he bargained for. Old school Russian-American politics kinda trouble.

5 second review: This movie brings you right back to the good old spy movie days, without being too repetitive. Okay, maybe some cliches are tackled, but that's part of the deal: the good spy guy always gets the girl. I especially liked the fast moving action sequences. With a highlight when Olga Kurylenko hits her adversary right in the face with a big shovel. Auch, that's gotta hurt.

IMDb score: 6,6/10
