Storyline

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>

Trivia

When Woody is glamorizing Harry's job at the CIA, Harry responds, "Not everyone in the CIA is Robert Redford." This is a subtle joke regarding the 1975 movie, Three Days of the Condor (1975) in which Redford plays a CIA agent whose codename is Condor. See more »

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 »

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 »

Remember when we were young
18 August 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This film reminds me of the first 'flick' our entire family went to see. Oh and the last. Condorman will only be a good film for those who remember times gone by. This is a very watchable family film but don't expect major laughs, especially with Michael Crawford's (Ooooh Betty) poor American accent. This was Disneys alternative to Superman with a splash of James Bond, and quite simply it was anything but. Please watch it so you can see how much storyboards, acting and special effects have progressed. If you like Porsche's chasing a gypsy waggon, then this is for you. If you are going to analyse this film for its kit-ch humour, and the directors/studio's desperation to get a film out for Summer, don't bother, however it is a way of introducing a spy film to your 3 year old.
