I’m loving this late period action thing that Pierce Brosnan is going for (The November Man, No Escape). He’s really riffing on his James Bond persona – and that’s a great thing. We need more Brosnan on screen and he’s still got the goods as a leading man.
Survivor, his next action-thriller is directed by James McTeigue and it sees Brosnan play ‘The Watchmaker’, an assassin attempting to take out Milla Jovovich’s Foreign Service Officer. The film looks like an enjoyable, no-nonsense action film with a strong supporting cast: Emma Thompson, Angela Bassett, Dylan McDermott and Robert Forster.
Check out the trailer and see if you agree:
Survivor will be released in select US theatres and VOD on 29 May 2015. It hits UK screens on 5 June.
