Movie Info

A volatile, oil-rich Nigerian community wages war against their corrupt government and a multi-national oil corporation to protect their land from being destroyed by excessive drilling and spills. To seek justice, a rebel organization kidnaps an American oil executive and demands that his corporation end the destruction and pollution. Inspired by true events, Black November is the gripping story of how a community rises up and takes drastic measures to make sure their voices are heard. (C) eOne

News & Interviews for Black November

Critic Reviews for Black November

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (6)

There's little going on in the final product other than good intentions, as Jeta Amata always seems overreaching for the right buttons to push.

January 9, 2015 | Full Review…

Hollywood and Nollywood collaborate to underwhelming effect in Jeta Amata's impassioned but inert issue thriller.

Top Critic

At once passionate and cynical, Amata skillfully lays out the ways that Nigeria is screwed.

January 8, 2015 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

There's a go-for-broke vigor to the way Mr. Amata cuts to the conflict in most scenes, but the heavy-handedness across the board imposes some significant limitations. Mr. Amata, though, pulls no punches with his ending.

January 8, 2015 | Full Review…

Filled with declamatory speeches, stereotypical characters and heavily telegraphed, melodramatic plot developments, the film fails to work as either thriller or politically themed drama.

January 7, 2015 | Full Review…

Basinger, Rourke, Anne Heche, Vivica A. Fox, Akon and Wyclef Jean all appear lost or disengaged in bit parts that give a B-movie feel to a political passion project.

January 7, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
