QUICK TAKE:
Spy Thriller: Brought out of retirement to retrieve a deep undercover agent from Russia, a former spy tries to figure out what she was after, why she was killed, and get revenge on those responsible for her murder.
PLOT:
Peter Devereaux (PIERCE BROSNAN) is a retired CIA agent who was once called "The November Man" for leaving a wake of death in his path while on the job. He's called back into action by his former handler, John Hanley (BILL SMITROVICH), who states that an active agent needs to be extracted from Russia and he's the man to do it. She's Natalia Ulanova (MEDIHA MUSLIOVIC) who's working deep undercover for former general Arkady Federov (LAZAR RISTOVSKI) who's now in the running to be the next president of Russia and she apparently has a name that could spoil his political future.

Peter manages to find her, but his former protégé, David Mason (LUKE BRACEY), is ordered by his Langley boss, Perry Weinstein (WILL PATTON), to assassinate the agent who's reportedly believed may have gone over to the other side. Moments before she dies, Natalia hands Peter a phone with pics of people Federov has killed or is currently targeted by his steely contract killer, Alexa (AMILA TERZIMEHIC).

Among them is Alice Fournier (OLGA KURYLENKO), a social worker in Belgrade who was one of the last people to see a young woman, Mira, who both Federov and the CIA want their hands on. At the same time, Mason is ordered to kill Peter and enlists the aid of junior officer Celia (CATERINA SCORSONE) in trying to track him down, while on his downtime he ends up romantically involved with his neighbor, Sarah (ELIZA TAYLOR). With Alice now in tow, Peter tries to get to the bottom of what's going on and who's responsible, and will do anything to get revenge on them.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.
