Luke (Jim Brown), an escaped convict, and Jaroo (Lee Van Cleef), a con-man, team up with a band of Apache Indians in 19th century Mexico to capture a large, heavily armed fortress for the millions of dollars in gold that are rumored to be stored inside.

This is an American Produced western that was filmed in Spain in the early 1970's. It does have a slight spaghetti western feel and is full of all the violence you would expect from one.

Lee Van Cleef and Jim Brown are great in their roles and this is my personal favourite out of the three westerns they made together. The film is full of action from vertually the opening scene and the end battle sequence is great. There is also a slightly downbeat ending that I wasn't expecting. The massive fortress built for this film went onto be used in, The Blindman, A Reason to Live a Reason to Die and more famously in Conan the Barbarian.

The catchy music score is by Maurice Jarre and is one of my favourite scores composed by him. A highly enjoyable film that in my opinion needs a proper DVD release, but with another Lee Van Cleef film 'Barquero' been re-released not so long ago, we can keep our fingers crossed that this will get the same treatment sometime soon.

Format: DVD
El Condor is directed by John Guillermin and written by Larry Cohen and Steve Carabatsos. It stars Jim Brown, Lee Van Cleef, Patrick O'Neal, Marianna Hill and Iron Eyes Cody. Music is by Maurice Jarre and cinematography by Henri Persin.

Luke (Brown), an escaped chain-gang fugitive, and Jaroo (Cleef), a gold prospector, decide to join forces in an assault on a Mexican fort that is thought to house the gold reserves of Emperor Maximilian. Backed by a band of Apache Indians, the mission is on, but the fort is heavily armed and General Chavez (O'Neal) is a shrewd and ruthless leader of the Mexican defenders.

Ebert didn't like it, it's most divisive amongst genre aficionados, while the charge of it being a mindless action film carries some substance, but oh what raucous - riotous - rambunctious fun it is!

It would be folly to argue about the acting being great here, it simply isn't, with both Cleef and Brown getting by on charisma, screen presence and light airy by-play. Yet Guillerman and producer Andre De Toth knew how to make an action film, and how to make the action impact with as much force as possible. The spectacle on show here is quite something, from the Technicolor photography that brings Andalusia vividly to life, to the magnificent adobe fort - and to the incredibly large cast members indulging in brutal and bloody battles, El Condor knows exactly what it needs to do to entertain the viewers.

There's also the sizzle factor, brought about by some nude scenes that ensured the picture would get the highest classification upon its original release. Yet regardless of these scenes being tame by today's standards, they surely are not in the film for gratification sake anyway, there's a simmering sexuality in the movie from the off.

This is a largely unheralded, and perhaps unfairly overlooked, early 1970's Western, set in Mexico.
Jim Brown and Lee Van Cleef play a couple of petty criminals. They decide to form a partnership, in order to search for a massive gold bullion hoard, which is reputedly hidden behind the walls of a heavily guarded desert fortress. The fortress is controlled by a renegade Mexican general, named Chavez, who has a full army of soldiers at his command. The rogue army rape and pillage the local agricultural communities, and their fortress is bolstered by heavy artillery.
Nonetheless, Brown and Van Cleef formulate a cunning plan to take control of the Mexican fortress and to grab the fortune in gold, aided by some local apache warriors. Inevitably, their plan goes awry, and they then need to use their street smarts to outwit the soldiers and make good an escape.
The cast is very impressively large for a Western. The battle inside the fortress is extremely well choreographed and executed. The fortress itself is incredible, a huge structure that dominates the surrounding desert landscape. The repartee between Brown and Van Cleef is first rate, reminding me of the barbed exchanges between the two central characters in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Van Cleef comes across as an amusing, likeable bounder, whilst Brown is stoic, stubborn and determined.
The rather lovely actress Marianna Hill provides the eye candy, she plays the mistress of Chavez, although effectively she is his captive. She dominates one segment of the film, when she performs an extended and complete strip-tease at her bedroom window, to distract a large number of soldiers who are manning the fortress walls.

Format: DVD
To contradict an earlier reviewer 'A.J.Harrison', this was a British-made western out in Spain, where the majority of the one-hundred-and-odd British westerns had their exteriors.

National General (NGC), a unification of cross-American theatres, burst onto the filmmaking scene in the mid-sixties and created some of the freshest new films: their distinction is THE STALKING MOON (1968), one of the very most underrated of all westerns. They also produced CHARRO! (1969), way better than most of its notices give out. They arrived in England - where the world's filmmaking emphasis had gradually moved to from the mid-fifties onwards - and set up Carthay Center Productions Ltd off Piccadilly. They placed money into bigger Rank films, were naturally partnered to Associated British / ABPC, and also placed joint funding into a British Lion film starring Hayley Mills. EL CONDOR was Carthay Center's own production - ahead of several planned to be made by the British division. Andre de Toth - who could direct westerns in a range of very different styles and who could well-use a big budget next to coping exceptionally with far lower outlays - became an independent producer in England during the sixties. De Toth was even a partner in a Harry Saltzman company - the one which made PLAY DIRTY (1968) during the time he was developing EL CONDOR. To comply with the Board of Trade, De Toth selected a British director in Guillermin.
