What a fun little adventure espionage movie! Woodrow Wilkins is a cartoonist who likes to test real-life costumes for his comic book character Condorman. Also, his best friend is a CIA desk agent who ends up asking Woody to do an innocuous civilian exchange for the agency. Only Natalia, the other civilian, is actually a KGB agent and when she decided to defect, she requests “Condorman” as her liaison.
The whole thing is very silly, but silly Cold War-era espionage movies with a ton of fun gadgets is very pleasing to me. I mean, it’s James Bond but with the cheese factor knowingly turned up way higher. There are quite a few cliches, especially in how Natalia is written, but that’s pretty much all made up for when you have a chase with a gypsy wagon that turns into a car that turns into a hydrofoil, all at the push of a few buttons.
I…really can’t think of much else to say about this. I can definitely see it being something I return to in the future because of how fun and silly and endearing it is.
