Condor

Critics Consensus

Condor never aspires to be a realistic depiction of spy games -- instead, it excels at evoking a uniquely 21st century brand of paranoia with its slick concept and propulsive pacing.

Tv Season Info

Joe Turner (Max Irons) is a young CIA analyst who develops an algorithm that helps identify terrorists; when his entire team is assassinated, he goes on the run. Throughout Season 1, Turner has to always stay one step ahead of those that want him dead, while at the same time trying to uncover a conspiracy within the U.S. government. Not knowing who he can trust, he turns to his uncle Bob Partridge (William Hurt), who recruited him into the CIA, and his friend Sam Barber (Kristoffer Polaha). However, things aren't what they seem, and Turner soon learns that those he thought were his enemies might be his only allies.

For those of us who grew up on stories of why governments can never be trusted, this is unmissable entertainment.

Smilovic and Katzberg surround Irons with proven talent who more than do their part.

Within minutes [Condor] turns into quite the little pulse-pounder - the sort of thing "24" fans can eat with a spoon.

Jun 14, 2018 | Full Review…

Condor is also more intellectually aggressive than the Pollack film... [and] the most rewarding at its most thoughtless...

Jun 13, 2018 | Full Review…

Condor, rewiring the anxieties of classic paranoid thrillers for contemporary nervous systems, presents every citizen's sense of isolation as the product of a state overrun with double-dealing.

Jun 7, 2018 | Full Review…

Fraser has many years of experience using his broad shoulders, looming height, goofy smile, and sad Pekingese eyes to create characters who are simultaneously menacing and sympathetic, and this performance is another keeper in that vein.

Jun 7, 2018 | Full Review…

Stands out for its ability to entertain and the hooks in its narrative that leave you wanting more. [Full review in Spanish]

Jun 3, 2019 | Full Review…

A very entertaining series that proves that literature, film and television are not exclusive to adapt a story. [Full Review in Spanish]

Nov 6, 2018 | Full Review…

There is absolutely nothing mold-breaking in "Condor," but it zips along swiftly and smartly enough to let you overlook most of its flaws

Jun 26, 2018 | Full Review…

You don't have to believe it; just enjoy it.

Jun 21, 2018 | Full Review…

Though it hits a lot of the familiar notes inherent to the subgenre, Condor is a gripping and jolt-driven thriller that isn't interested in slowing down for distracted viewers.

Jun 7, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Condor does its best to overcome the burden of not being the best of its genre.

Audience Reviews for Condor: Season 1

  • May 03, 2020
    If you're looking for an excellent TV version of '3 Days of the Condor' keep looking....this isn't it. In this TV version Robert Redford's character [Joe Turner] is played by Max Irons. He's neither bright nor likable. Yes, the writers try and pass him off as 'off the charts' intelligent in numerous flashback scenes as a child, but instead he comes off looking arrogant and obnoxious. In present time, as a CIA analyst, he can't seem to do anything other than make one stupid decision after another....and he's still not likable. In this TV version the incomparable Max Von Sydow character [the assassin Joubert] is now a 90 lb woman/sociopath played by Leem Lubany. She actually sleep's with Joe the night before the hit on the CIA building where Joe works. Why this supposedly elite assassin doesn't just kill him that night and kill the rest of his team the next morning is anyone's guess, but I'm going to put it down to writer's who think their audience is stupid. And based on the rave reviews of this show so far, it appears they may be right. It just goes downhill from there. By the time you hit episode 8, all credulity is thrown out the window with the writer's now scrambling to try and make sense of the mess they themselves have created. It's too bad really, this show had tremendous potential. Esp. in light of the deep state coup attempt we've recently witnessed in Washington by un-elected officials of the CIA, DOJ, and FBI. There's no doubt the movie was political, with the underlying message being we can never fully trust our government. But the movie didn't take sides, there was no good political party/bad political party. Unfortunately, the writer's of this garbage just couldn't help themselves. In this version, it's not the Islamist's who are the terrorists, it's America. It's the CIA. Or more accurately Republican's within the CIA that are part of a group mockingly referred to as "Christians In Action"[C.I.A.]. And it's these Christian/conservative Republican CIA officials who decide it's time to end the war with Muslims by unleashing the plague on them in Mecca during Hajj and killing 200 million+ Muslims. At the end of the day this show is nothing more than not so subtly wrapped leftist propaganda. It's like putting wrapping paper on a turd. Sure it looks nice on the outside, but when you unwrap it, it's still a turd. And this is one giant turd.

    Great 1st season, awaiting season 2 that will have a lot to live up too!
  • Dec 08, 2018
    Excellent spy serie. Suspensful, dark, with a bunch of nicely developped characters.
  • Nov 28, 2018
    Must see! Love it! Lots of twists and turns. Great acting!
  • Oct 09, 2018
    Starts well but really runs out of steam by episode 8. It gets more confusing toward the end and the finish couldn't be any duller. I assume the reviewers who liked it, only saw the first few episodes.
  • Oct 07, 2018
    One of the best shows I've watched a long time. Brilliant, from the inside out.
  • Sep 04, 2018
    Loved it! Wish it was available to other providers!

    Hurt si Brendan Fraser rup baraca dar toata lumea face treaba buna

    This show is amazing. It will keep you engaged and on the edge of your seat. It is one of the best new shows that I have seen in a long time.
