As a kid, this was my favorite movie for quite some time. I never thought I'd see them re-release it (as Disney would probably like to forget it ever existed) but I'm pleased none the less. Condorman is sort of a cross between James Bond and Batman with some Pink Panther ineptitude thrown in for laughs. While it is not by any means a masterpiece, it's still pretty fun and quite worthwhile. It's got lots of high tech spy gear, including cool cars, speedboats, lazers and other gadgets, humor, romance, an evil villain, and a likable hero who comes out on top. I've read some pretty bad reviews of the film, complaining that there's no plot to it. I don't know what movie they were watching, but the film makes pretty good sense to someone willing to just listen to the dialogue. It makes a great deal more sense than the plots of some other spy movies I could mention... Maybe Condorman IS mostly for the kids, but if you have an attention span and give it a chance, I think you'll find it's not nearly as bad as you may have heard.

I was in middle school when this movie came out. It was 1981 and I had saved up my pocket money to pay for the bus ride into the city and the admission for a matinee to a movie that seemed so exciting and lively to me.

I had read the book 'The Game of X' by Robert Sheckley as well as the adaptation of the movie by Heather Simon and imagined every scene in my head as I had gone through it. The movie was everything a young boy could have hoped for - a rollicking, comedic adventure with a very beautiful female Russian agent (Carrera) and a sinister KGB chief (played by Oliver Reed).

The only problem I have with this movie is the miscasting of Michael Crawford as Woody Wilkins, the cartoonist who helps out a friend of his at the CIA office in Paris. Englishman Crawford puts on the most exaggerated American accent imagineable, although admittedly he has the brilliant comedic timing necessary to pull off this role.

The CIA in France has a problem. They need a civilian to act as a courier to Istanbul. Of course Woody gets the job, but right from the start it's obvious he is taking his role just a little too seriously. By the time he arrives to meet his KGB contact in Turkey he has fully assumed the role of his cartoon creation - top CIA agent and superhero Condorman.

Barbara Carrera (who two years later would get to play a Bond girl - the very movies this one attempts to lampoon) plays KGB agent Natalia. Later, when she makes the decision to defect, the impressive Condorman comes to mind as the only CIA agent she will trust to handle her defection.

The only problem is the CIA does not have an agent with the codename Condorman.

What follows is an adventure filled race across Europe with enough gadgets to fill several Bond movies.

This is one of those movies that would have been a massive hit if it had had a star in it. However it is still a great movie with fantastic action set pieces and pretty good jokes. If you want to ask Disney to let you know when it's re-released use the link on the Disney DVD website and then follow instructions to be 'emailed when it is available'. (Can't post the link here on Amazon as it's a no no to include web addresses so do a search for Condorman on the Disney DVD site).

I am a little ashamed that my first review on Amazon wasn't this movie, instead I reviewed King Kong (new remake) - SHAME ON ME!!! This movie is fantastic! I remember watching it as a very young child and was mezmerized by it! It has a story, a creative concept, and a steller cast. The idea at the time was exciting because it was around the time of The Greatest American Hero and has some of the same kind of humor in it.

RE-RELEASE THIS DISNEY! I'm begging! I want to see if it holds up over time!!!

As a spoof of the spy genre, this is great. Michael Crawford plays the lead with endearing charm and innocence, and, knowing his sense of humor, tongue-in-cheek. Somehow it all works to be hilariously funny!

Wow! I love this movie! My younger brother and I used to watch it with our family all the time-it was our favorite. When I finally put two and two together and realized Michael Crawford was Woody-I loved it even more! I totally agree that the truck turned race car is the coolest, and the guy with the silver eye. My friends and I have been looking for this forever! Now we can watch it endlessly in our dorm rooms!

I just got the Region 2 Disney UK DVD of Condorman in the mail today and instantly put it in the player.

I am fairly certain that I saw this in the theater and then a million times on the Disney Channel, but have not seen it since the mid 80's when I was very young.

When I started to watch, I noticed how it was similar in concept to Gotcha! (1985), with an American civilian mixed up in international intrigue. And as much as I still like Gotcha!, Condorman is the superior movie. Gotcha! is all nerdy hormones and awkwardness, while Condorman just rolls out fantastic comic book surprises one after the next.

For an actor whose career apparently peaked with this movie, Michael Crawford does a great job and is very likeable. James Hampton is a guy with not a ton of name recognition, but has a ton of face recognition, and is great in this movie. Barbara Carrera went on to be a Bond girl opposite Sean Connery 2 years later, and is very much a Bond girl here and Oliver Reed plays a menacing villain.

Even though The Cat From Outer Space (1978) has more than 6 actors with speaking lines, and a cast filled with recognizable stars from TV and Disney movies, Condorman is just as much fun.

The Region 2 Disney UK DVD comes with no special features. Audio options are English, French and German. With Subtitles options being English, French and German as well. The credits all come at the beginning of the movie, which was how credits were done until George Lucas changed the industry with Star Wars, so the lack of end credits seems a bit jarring. When I played this on my computer with the VLC player, there was black bars both below and on the side of the image. But in my multiregion Blu Ray player, the image wiled my widescreen TV.

Several UK sellers on Amazon are selling this for under $10 plus shipping and at that price, you can't go wrong with this DVD, if you have the ability to play other region DVDs.
