Tough guys top this week’s new DVD offerings.
Peter Devereaux (Brosnan) is an ex-CIA killing machine who left the business behind after a tragedy during a mission. He is pulled out of retirement by his previous handler, Hanley (Bill Smitrovich ), to save a woman who means more to Devereaux than just another assignment.
Brosnan’s performance makes “The November Man” worth seeing.
Proves that when it comes to summer action movies, first and last impressions really matter. Both the explosive opening and the massive battle scene that caps the film offer some of the best full-throttle fun of the summer’s offerings. They are exciting enough to distract from a middle that sags under unnecessary dialogue, a travelogue to put together the next generation of Expendables and pages of silly banter.
Included in this collection are “Jungle Goddess,” “The Painted Hills,” “The Screaming Skull” and “Squirm.” They come in a tin box set stuffed with bonus features, including an interview with “Squirm” star Don Scardino.
