" You think that not getting caught, is the same as telling the truth? "
11 January 2009 | by See all my reviews

Every now and then a film emerges which illuminates our government and all it's secret covert operations. Sometimes, government official are very embarrassed with just how close the movies are to their real life escapades. In this story a small group of government researchers are working at their daily humdrum jobs, when without notice, an assassin enters their building and murders them. Did I say all? Well unfortunately for the assassin, one employee Joseph Turner (Robert Redford) was literally 'out to lunch.' When he returns and finds everyone murdered, he keeps his cool and with a logical approach, must discover the who and why, his entire team was eliminated. It's a real-life cat-and-mouse game which if not played correctly, will end with the last member of the team code name Condor, dead with the outside world never knowing why. As Condor seeks those who ordered the murders and cover-up, he also discovers a professional killer is after him. Further, his immediate superiors do not want his coming in from the cold, they would prefer him dead. Condor learns quickly not to trust anyone and therefore takes steps to stay away from making 'predictable' mistakes. With the superior cast of Cliff Robertson as Higgins, John Houseman as Mr. Wabash, the international star, Max Von Sydow as Joubert and Faye Dunaway as Kathy. this film easily generates enough platitudes to support it as a Classic. ****
