The greatest motion picture of all-time. Hands down.
23 January 2000 | by (Edinburgh, Scotland) – See all my reviews

Forget Ben-Hur. Forget Casablanca. Forget The Godfather. Forget them all. Condorman is the greatest movie of all time. The epic story of the larger-than-life hero Condorman, brought to life by comic book writer Woody, a common man. When he is asked to partake in a secret mission of helping a beautiful Russian agent called "The Bear", but known passionately to Woody as Natalia, defect to the United States. Things go awry when the evil Russian Krokov sends the deadly assassin Morovich and his deadly Prognoviach. But just when Krokov thinks that "the best kept secrets of Woodrow Wilkins can be found by any small child for the price of a tiny coin", Woody uses one of his many disguises to fool Krokov. An amazing boat escape is the climax of this epic. So, order yourself a Triple Istanbul Express and sit back and enjoy the greatest single piece of art ever.
