    The 1975 Condor was a gem of a movie. It didn't need car chases or outrageous gunfights. It was a well done drama that made sense. I'm afraid the new Condor is just another special effects movie designed for the video game set.

    Condor is kind of a mild CIA renegade who literally cuts security corners at lunchtime and it saves his life.The quirky staff includes a receptionist who keeps a loaded .45 in her desk and Condor instinctively grabs it, although he is a pacifist, when he finds everyone dead.

    In the remake, Turner will have to be transgender who works at an e-book publisher. Every day at noon, Turner leaves the office to grab a kale salad at a low carbon footprint food cart. Of course, his main means of transportation to and from the office will still be a bicycle, except he will wear a helmet in this version.

    During his flight after the office massacre, the woman he/she kidnaps will have to be a bi-racial CEO of a software company. They will cross paths in a Starbucks, escape in a Prius, and a white hitman dressed as an Amazon delivery driver will show up at her Manhattan loft to kill them with an AR-15 with a high capacity magazine.
