Trivia

All but one of the film's leading actors have won Oscars. Robert Redford for Ordinary People (1980), Faye Dunaway for Network (1976), Cliff Robertson for Charly (1968) and John Houseman for The Paper Chase (1973). All the awards were for acting, except Redford's two, one of which was for directing, the other an Honorary Award. The only one of these actors [to date, September 2013] not to win an Academy Award was Max von Sydow, who has been nominated twice without winning, for Pelle the Conqueror (1987) and Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close (2011).

Goofs

It's hard to believe that Turner (Condor) wouldn't know the area code for Washington, DC. See more »

Quotes

Joubert: Condor is an amateur. He's lost, unpredictable, perhaps even sentimental. He could fool a professional. Not deliberately, but precisely because he is lost, doesn't know what to do. Unlike Wicks, who has always been entirely predictable.

Terrific tension
21 November 2003 | by See all my reviews

This film was very effective in maintaining the tension not only of the Condor's life and death mission to discover the reasons for the massacre of his colleagues but also the relationship between him and Kathy. The cast is uniformly good though Redford obviously carries the film. Von Sydow is again great as the strictly professional assassin. The entire film had an aura of authenticity that had me entirely engrossed. Recommended, 8/10.
