Trivia

In one scene, Barbara Carrera's character is terrorized by Oliver Reed's. A perfectionist, Oliver felt that Barbara's acting was wooden and not fully projecting the true fear her character would be feeling at that moment. Frustrated with her, he actually opened the door of the helicopter they were in and threatened to throw her out. The fear on her face is real. Getting the shot needed, Oliver shoves her back and then relaxes with a slight smile. In anger, Barbara actually elbows him painfully, which you can see in Oliver's face. But not wishing to sour the scene, he takes the punch, though his displeasure is plain on his face. (This little fight is in the film during the escape attempt from the ski lodge.) See more »

When the Condorman logo appears, a cartoon Condorman poses next to it and gets his wing caught underneath it. This is followed by the Condorman cartoon flying (and crashing) over live-action footage of Paris during the opening credits. See more »

Unlikely hero in comical family film
25 January 2005 | by (Seattle, WA) – See all my reviews

I love this movie. I grew up watching Condorman and I always think of it with fond memories. The special effects may not be the best; however, the movie is over two decades old, and I think the effects are quite adequate. Besides, the movie is not supposed to be realistic, but rather it is a comedy with action elements. It provides a window into what people worried about in the early eighties; Cold War espionage is a major part of the story. Overall, it is charming and is a feel-good movie. It has all the classic elements: good verses evil and boy meets girl. It is a quality family movie and I would recommend this film to all who are young at heart.
