Cheezy yet sweet
31 December 2000 | by jknightSee all my reviews

Think of Batman meets Inspector gadget!

Even for '81 this movie can bring you along for thrill ride. Beautiful women, neat gadgets and one of the best car chases. The main musical theme is easy to remember and consist of a one word lyric "CONDORMAN!". Yet "Condorman" is so ignorant that he doesn't realize the peril he puts himself into. He's a cartoonist for goodness sake!

Wonderfully cheezy in today's standards!
