Comic artist and writer Woody performs a simple courier operation for his friend Harry who works for the CIA. But when he successfully fends off hostile agents, he earns the respect of the beautiful Natalia, who requests his assistance for her defection. Woody uses this request as leverage to use the CIA's resources to bring his comic book creation, Condorman, to life to battle the evil Krokov. Written by Ben Evans <turlough@geocities.com>

Goofs

(at around 55 mins) In a European scene, youngsters are astonished that 'Natalia' (or Woody's comic book creation of Laser Lady' ) is before them. Several children have comic books in their hands. As the boy in the foreground turns his copy around, you can actually read the back cover (US) edition advertisements and further can realize the front cover is in US English! You will also note that all children have US versions. See more »

Quotes

Krokov: Have you seen this report on this Condorman? On this man Wilkins? He is an AMATEUR, do you hear? He is NOT an agent of the CIA! He is a WRITER OF COMIC BOOKS!

Far from great, but still a lot of fun.
14 April 1999 | by (Pennsylvania, USA) – See all my reviews

"Condorman" is not a great movie. However, it is a lot of fun to watch. "Condorman" follows cartoonist Woody Wilkins (Michael Crawford), an eccentric who refuses to have his hero, Condorman, do anything in a comic book that he himself hasn't done in real life. The acting is predictably predictable, but still fun. Aside from Crawford, the other characters include a ravishing Barbera Carrera as the gorgeous Russian spy Wilkins falls for, and Oliver Reed as her "old fling". If for no other reason than to see a pre-"Phantom" Crawford in an outrageous role, this movie is worth at least a look.
