The truth — the first victim
Of course, I was intrigued to learn that is cleared, "Kondor" — 10 serial spy Thriller with max irons in the lead role. By the way, not just because I had previously seen the famous film, Sydney Pollack, his inspired — "Three days of the Condor" with Robert Redford in the role of John Turner. For me attractive and the genre: I love thrillers, detectives in a tangle can be linked to a catchy title, dynamic, intriguing plot and good action, which in this case was already the name of the series.
Just note that in recent times the boundaries of genres in the film are so vague that it is difficult to separate the political and spy Thriller and remove them leaving the detective: the crime, the investigation, looking for clues... it Seemed such "layering" may cover only a show, but often these presents bestselling action movies, sometimes series of films, where the main character needs in the shortest possible time to find a way out of an explosive situation as it was movies the CIA Jason Bourne ("the Bourne Identity" and etc.) or with the character of Professor Robert Langdon ("the Code da Vinci" and ex) on the novels of Dan brown. With a rating of high expectations is the next film in the interesting best-selling novel by Robert Ludlum "the Manuscript Cancelaura" with Leonardo DiCaprio in the title role.
The series "Condor" also begins with a extraordinary the tragic situation that occurred in the invisible, the company engaged in technical development and analysis at the CIA: from a sudden attack on their office dies the whole Department involved in the development of an algorithm for the identification of terrorist threats and the author — a young talented analyst Joe Turner (Max irons), the only accident survivors, forced to hide as the main suspect. It the task — not just to stay alive, but and to find those who are the attack was profitable. The task is not easy, because the mask of complacency, patriotism, loyalty to the interests of the country may be hiding ruthlessness, cruelty, desire in any way, even any human casualties to achieve the desired result, when it comes to a modern bio-weapon capable in a matter of moments to turn the whole world in chaos.
It is significant that being a spy series, "Condor" is not is in his narration "breakneck" speed. Joe Turner is running, it was persecuted, he can not to stop anywhere for long, but it in the show is a place for reflection, debate, perspectives in family history or picture of the modern world, and each episode is preceded by a relevant quote. Sometimes it seems that it takes side of the development of the plot. To really meaning in fact, to more fully reveal the image of the hero, Joe Turner. After all, the main idea of the series is not is, what Turner runs, or rather, not only it but they move over he is ready to fight! Rather, it is drama series with Thriller, where the internal component of the character is not less important than the political spy intrigue.
Interesting detail: "Condor" in the name of the series — not just a vivid image of a bird, it's call the main character — Joe Turner on the novel "Six days of the Condor" by James Grady and film — predecessor of the series. It is a pity that the authors have forgotten this to clarify, because in the series about call no question. Another one disadvantages: a bit boring valid team on the analysis of the attack on the technical office, one that is as times should create or strengthen action. Thus, all dynamics the show rests on the John and the people that it involves is detrimental to them swirl in their time of flight.
The show was mixed and naturally, someone will find in its pros, some cons. Personally, I love to have a look at max irons in the role of a genius analyst classified firms. I he remembered in the role of king Edward IV York in the historical series about the war between the red and White roses "the White Queen". Excellent, sensual, charismatic actor with a wonderful, sincere smile and I hope a great future for your acting career. It should be noted and appearance after a long absence, Brendan Fraser. It character — quiet, slippery — causing a twofold attitude: actions, the case, which he used have a negative connotation, but completely touching it love daughter. Here such that the ambivalence, and brilliant!
Good luck to you in the preview!
