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 »

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!

Crazy Credits

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 »

The ultimate action/adventure movie for kids.
4 October 1999 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

If the best James Bond movie had a "G" rating, it might very well have looked liked "Condorman". It has all of the cool gadgets, world-wide locations, a sexy femme fatale, creepy Russain villains, and best of all, some of the coolest car and boat chase sequences on film. Keep in mind that this is a kids movie, so the humor level is elementary, but nonetheless funny. The acting is over-the-top and cartoonish, but regardlessly enjoyable. Everyone looking for a fun, fast-paced adventure movie should check out this movie.
