Title - 'The November Man'
Artist - Marco Beltrami

'The November Man' was yet another movie that came out of nowhere for me. I hadn't heard of it coming out, didn't see any ads for it on TV, and yet here it is! It tells the story of Peter Devereaux (Pierce Brosnan) who is an extremely dangerous and highly-trained ex-CIA agent, who is lured out of quiet retirement on a very personal mission. He must protect valuable witness, Alice Fournier (Olga Kurylenko) who could expose the truth behind a decades old conspiracy.

Composed by the award winning Marco Beltrami - 'Snowpiercer,' 'The Wolverine,' 'Trouble With The Curve,' 'A Good Day To Die Hard,' etc. - it's his reputation as a musical genre innovator with non-traditional horror and action scores that, once again comes to the fore.

With a screenplay by Michael Finch and Karl Gajdusek based on Bill Granger's novel 'There are No Spies' from the bestselling November Man book series, this ultimate tale of cat and mouse is captured perfectly by Beltrami. Tracks like 'Natalia,' 'Mason Scores,' 'Confession,' and both 'Mason Saves Lucy' and 'Who Done It' are taut themes, one and all. Some inclusive of a guitar theme with a slightly eastern European meets Western motif, that only enhances this action thriller about international espionage.
