5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless Classic 28 Sep 2008
Format:DVD
Even with an abundance of flares and feather-cuts this this film is timeless. It raises so many issues that are still relevant today. This is one of Robert Redfords finest performances but it is Max Von Sydow as the hitman that steals the picture. Cannot recommend this highly enough plus it includes great footage of inside the twin towers.

4.0 out of 5 stars 3 Days of the Condor 11 Feb 2012
Format:DVD
This is a favourite film of ours from the past, and we settled down to watch it in anticipation. Just as good as ever....the only problem was we kept getting flashes of foreign sub-titles on the screen - has this DVD been originally sub-titled, and then re-mastered? We bought this as new, so were a bit surprised by this. It was irritating, but other than that,we were satisfied with the purchase..Brilliant film - would recommend this to any Robert Redford fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic 4 Oct 2007
By Gary
Format:DVD
For some reason this film is yet to get a UK release, but I have this Dutch DVD which is R2 and of good quality. Sydney Pollack was too modest to describe his own film as a classic but that's what it is. The only problem with it is Redford's looks which always make him seem out of place in any "ordinary" role. Also, the sexual politics are somewhat dubious. It does have a great ending which bravely concludes on uncertainty, whatever the lead actor's matinee looks may imply.

The Special Features menu has the most annoying interface I've yet encountered. You try pressing the feature you want. Nuts!

But when you eventually succeed, you'll be rewarded with a fascinating documentary on the talented Mr Pollack. What is surprising is how many films you've seen and enjoyed over the years that you didn't realise were directed by him. Oh, and Bobby Dearfield is a favourite of mine too, Mr Pollack, so despair ye not!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Condor Soars 24 July 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Redford's charisma has continued to shine in latter day films such as 'Sneakers' and 'Spy Game' but '3 Days of the Condor' found him at his peak. I originally saw this fine conspiracy thriller on its release in the U.K during the 70's and it made a lasting impression. The character portrayals are exceptional and the basic premise of the movie was ahead of its time. Of course it is slightly dated now, but it is also a classic that should be viewed in the proper spirit if one is to do justice to it. I was very pleased to finally be able to buy it on dvd. If you enjoy Ludlum's work then you'll be glad that you bought this.

5.0 out of 5 stars A real classic 29 Mar 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This was the first 'AA' I saw as a kid and thoroughly enjoyed it and it's still as good today. A twisting 39 Steps style resourceful underdog thriller. The opening ten minutes shocked me back then and I still find those scenes uncomfortable today. I cannot recommend this film highly enough.

4.0 out of 5 stars CONDOR MAN 13 Sep 2008
By A.D.M.
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A stylish, low-key 70s thriller carried by the man Redford. The first half hour is excellent, setting the scene and presenting Redford as a book-ish, happy go lucky CIA research operative. His co-workers are brutally murdered whilst he's out to lunch and upon discovering their bodies on return he goes on the run. The movie settles into periods of quiet contemplation and sudden bursts of action, as Redford becomes more and more paranoid. He develops a rather unusual relationship with the striking Faye Dunaway (who he takes hostage), and this occupies a lot of the middle period of the film. I got a bit lost around this point, but things start to come together towards the end, with the unsettling hitman Max von Sydow tying up some of the loose ends. I didn't enjoy Three Days of the Condor as much as some of the other crime / thriller movies from this period, but it is certainly enjoyable and if you are able to adapt to the slower pace, this is well worth a look. Redford's character is a little perplexing as at the start of the film he is a genius bookworm, and by the end of it he is wrestling villains, shooting guns and rewiring phone exchanges. Yet Redford is always watchable, charistmatic and frustratingly handsome. Damn him! I should note that the wrapping up of the story is particularly fascinating as it seems to be about 25 years before it's time.

4.0 out of 5 stars 1970s Conspiracy thriller ***1/2 27 Nov 2008
By purpleheart TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Robert Redford plays Joe Turner, the type of CIA agent that we can stomach - his job is to come up with possible scenarios from books, magazines and media from around the world. His world in the faux American Literary Society is shattered when he return from picking up a deli lunch to find his colleagues have been gunned down. Post the pacy Bourne trilogy the treatment of the killing and the aftermath seems almost leisurely - Redford's character has time to think and that's enjoyable to watch.

Turner has nobody to trust when it becomes clear his CIA boss is ready to kill him and he kidnaps and then persuades Faye Dunaway's character to help him. His amateurism makes him unpredictable and helps him evade the hitmen as he tries to work out what's gone on.

The musical score is very dated - it's best when there is silence but Pollack's treatment holds up overall. The ending is interesting given the film's post Watergate date. Watch and enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fine tangled web movie 18 May 2008
Format:DVD
Entertaining espionage/political intrigue type movie which asks the viewer to concentrate to try and work out what's going on. In other words it engages the viewer instead of just blowing the whole story early on and focusing on the action scenes, as many movies annoyingly do. The role of compromised intelligence agent suits Redford perfectly, and the story unfolds nicely. Well directed, well acted, just short of being a real classic, possibly because it seems a little contrived, or a little too concerned with seeming clever and intricate. A great effort.
