“You know what we used to call you, Peter? The November Man, because after you passed through, nothing lived. You were one bleak motherfucker” This might sound at odds with Pierce Brosnan’s grinning James Bond. It is. I wonder if Brosnan watched Taken and appreciated what that movie did for the career of Liam Neeson and thought, “I need some of this.” Brosnan is more callous in this movie, probably more than we’ve ever seen. And it’s good for him ...

Although there isn’t much in the way of mystery going on, it could have otherwise been ‘average’ were it not ...

Anyone who remembers Sudden Death (1995) has seen this movie before, and anyone who has seen Sudden Death had seen it before with Die Hard (1988). It is of course a new Die Hard Clone, this time it’s action man Dave Bautista’s turn to deal with terrorists in a locked down venue. This one is a VOD effort, albeit a somewhat weighty one with a $20 million budget and some decent names to go along with Bautista (Pierce ...
