Awesome Movie – Condorman
Yes this week we have Condorman – before Disney bought Marvel they had to make up their own Super Heroes and Condorman deserves to be way at the top of the list…
I-Man and Captain EO not withstanding…
The best way I can describe him is a cross between Batman (no superpowers) and The Greatest American Hero (Awkward – but well intentioned)
Here is a clip:
OK so that is a trailer remake… and the movie cannot be taken as seriously as the music suggests though I suppose you figured that out all ready. The premise of the story is a comic book writer gets confused for a CIA Agent and accidentally becomes involved in a Russian Agent Defection. Since the CIA wants his help they have to provide him his gear… designed from the comic book he writes…Condorman. This is a great one for you to show younger kids especially to start the comicbook hero bug… Not too suspenseful just fun and quirky for the most part. I would say anyone 6 and older could enjoy this movie. Plus it is fun to see Michael Crawford out of his element a little. Other notable cast members are Barbara Carrera and Oliver Reed.
