Three Days of the Condor Reviews

August 9, 2016
A piece of dotty, slightly paranoid intrigue. Three Days of the Condor promises little and keeps its word. It is hard to get indignant about it, or enthusiastic either.
March 1, 2007
Basically a B, it has been elevated in form -- but not in substance -- via four bigger names, location shooting and more production values. Sometimes the trick works, but not here.

If the story had stuck to its guns as a political thriller, it would have been fantastic. However, the sideline story of a codependent lover made things screech to a halt.

It's got the mystery aspect down beautifully, but because I wasn't given a chance to get behind the characters and get to know them, I had a hard time getting into the film itself.
March 1, 2007
Basically, the film is a throwback to the 60s anti-Bond spy thriller (a la The Ipcress File), except here the genre's annihilating irony has been replaced by Pollack's liberal piousness.
May 26, 2008
Exciting but frequently incomprehensible.
February 9, 2006
The action rarely falters, and at its best the film offers an intriguing slice of neo-Hitchcock.
May 5, 2015
Tense, violent '70s spy movie shows its age.

Bringing restraint and composure without skimping on the requisite tension and intrigue, Pollock builds a credible, character-led adventure.

Three Days of the Condor is a well-made thriller, tense and involving, and the scary thing, in these months after Watergate, is that it's all too believable.

Fine espionage thriller that features great performances by Redford and Dunaway. It's not perfect, but it's pretty close.

A careful work of adjustment and prophecy
November 7, 2002
Redford, Dunaway, Von Sydow, Cliff Robertson and John Houseman turn in superb work, and the film is as pure a thriller as one could hope for, with a gripping premise, hurtling plot and a marvelous air of menace.

A tense, taut and atmospheric thriller...
August 7, 2016
While its thriller elements deliver, the film is undermined by a subplot that was surely over-egged even when it was made and which has only been further diminished by the passage of time.
