The November Man Review
For The November Man to simply be uninspired would be one thing, but the cyanide capsule hidden in its smirk is a sexist streak that jolts you awake every time it rears its ugly head. The base of the conspiracy involves war refugees sold into sex trafficking and a slimy club owner that looks like a Russian Chad Kroeger, but as Devereaux follows the thread to the heights of power, The November Man finds a way to belittle, abuse, or just kill every major female character. Terzimehic, who’s setup as a major threat, is a complete incompetent in action, and Kurylenko’s backstory is upsetting enough to hear about, let alone have to witness in leering flashback. The women of the film are here to be used as victims or scapegoats, while dudes like Devereaux get all self-righteous and angry about it, despite perpetrating most of the violence against them (in a shockingly miscalculated moment of drama, Devereaux tests his protégé’s loyalties by holding his one-night-stand hostage at knife point, slicing open her femoral artery just so he can prove a point).
