Product Description

Amazon.ca

A pre-Phantom Michael Crawford plays Woody, a goofy cartoonist-accidentally-turned-spy in this Cold War-era lark. In Paris visiting his friend, a CIA "file clerk," Woody is sent on a cloak-and-dagger errand and is mistaken for an operative by his beautiful Russian counterpart. She then contacts the agency with the demand that he, and only he, help her defect. Writer adopts comic book persona and voilà: Condorman! This wide-winged hero thwarts the pesky Soviets at every turn. From the old run-down farmer's truck he's driving emerges a flashy race car that outruns a fleet of Russian vehicles. Later, in a Chitty Chitty Bang Bang moment, the car sprouts floaters, allowing the pair to escape their pursuers by sea. Barbara Carrera's Natalia--the true spy of the two--is really just along for the ride. It's Condorman's show, as confirmed by the ending: a shot-filled showdown off the shores of Monte Carlo.--Kimberly Heinrichs

As a kid, this was my favorite movie for quite some time. I never thought I'd see them re-release it (as Disney would probably like to forget it ever existed) but I'm pleased none the less. Condorman is sort of a cross between James Bond and Batman with some Pink Panther ineptitude thrown in for laughs. While it is not by any means a masterpiece, it's still pretty fun and quite worthwhile. It's got lots of high tech spy gear, including cool cars, speedboats, lazers and other gadgets, humor, romance, an evil villain, and a likable hero who comes out on top. I've read some pretty bad reviews of the film, complaining that there's no plot to it. I don't know what movie they were watching, but the film makes pretty good sense to someone willing to just listen to the dialogue. It makes a great deal more sense than the plots of some other spy movies I could mention... Maybe Condorman IS mostly for the kids, but if you have an attention span and give it a chance, I think you'll find it's not nearly as bad as you may have heard.

Yes, it's Condorman, vulture of the western world and superhero/spy extraordinare! Disguised as mild-mannered comic book writer/illustrator Woody Wilkins (Michael Crawford) by day, Condorman must fight a never ending battle to save the world from the ever growing forces of evil that threaten to engulf it, while at the same time trying desperately to protect his beautiful Russian spy girlfriend Natalia (Barbara Carrera) from the clutches of the villainous Krokov (Oliver Reed)!
Highlighted by a well above average cast and an exciting musical score composed by the one-and-only Henry Mancini, and loaded with tons of adventure, action and excitement..."Condorman" is certainly a very fun movie to watch and is one that can be enjoyed by anyone, no matter how young or old they may be!

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun but not very good Feb. 12 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I first saw this movie five years ago, as a preteen, with my father. We made jokes about what low-quality it was until I read a year ago that it stars Michael Crawford(Phantom of the Opera). It was still low quality (except the special effects, which are pretty good), but it is definitely worth it for Crawford fans. Crawford plays a cartoonist who, with an amazingly coincidental association with the CIA, acts out the exploits of his hero, Condorman. Not especially funny or thrilling, Condorman is a uniform mock-spy-thriller, with a good supporting cast but bad writing. Would probably be good for younger children (note the PG rating, though), and has gorgeous scenes in the Alps.

1.0 out of 5 stars Movie is 5 stars, but dvd is 1 star Sept. 19 2002
Format:DVD
I love this movie, and have been waiting for it to be released on dvd. Unfortunately, the dvd was not worth the wait. The dvd has no features whatsoever, not even subtitles. The main menu has two options, play movie and chapter selections. The sound and picture are no better than the video; the only benefits the dvd has over the video are that you can fast forward directly to a specific scene, and you have your choice of full screen and wide screen (double sided dvd). What's the point of making a dvd if it is as bad as this one? Very disappointing....
P.S. This is for the 1999 dvd version. I noticed that a new version was released in 2003. Hopefully that version is better.

Here is an example of classic movie making. It reflects the old values of passed generations, and though there are romantic moments, they are not dwelt upon nor exploited for sexuality as so rudimentary in modern films. I recommend it to all who love their families enough to show them wholesome movies. Crawford is a great actor, playing a kind of "Clark Kent/Superman" split role at times, trying to be a regular guy one moment, then a superhero another, and incorporates innocence in his less than eloquent attempts to impress a pretty woman. It is definately worth-while, clean fun.

I am such a fan of Michael Crawford's singing that I would probably pay to listen to him gargle. When I saw this film I thought, "How does a man whose singing makes people weep get to be Condorman?" After watching it twice I decided it is what it was meant to be; a huge put-on. Not that it matters to a Michael Crawford fan. If you are a fan be sure to buy "Knack...and How to Get it"...What a guy! Actor,dancer,gymnist,wonderful comedian,and sings like an angel!

4.0 out of 5 stars An Absolute Classic! Aug. 7 1999
Format:VHS Tape
Wow! I love this movie! My younger brother and I used to watch it with our family all the time-it was our favorite. When I finally put two and two together and realized Michael Crawford was Woody-I loved it even more! I totally agree that the truck turned race car is the coolest, and the guy with the silver eye. My friends and I have been looking for this forever! Now we can watch it endlessly in our dorm rooms!

As a spoof of the spy genre, this is great. Michael Crawford plays the lead with endearing charm and innocence, and, knowing his sense of humor, tongue-in-cheek. Read more
