Product Description

Simon Templar (Val Kilmer), alias The Saint, is a gentleman spy and thief. After stealing a microchip from Russian oil magnate Ivan Tretiak (Rade Serbebzija), he is hired by Tretiak to appropriate a secret formula for a new energy process called cold fusion from American scientist Emma Russell (Elisabeth Shue). Templar discovers all he can about Russell and poses as a poet to seduce her and find the formula, but finds himself falling in love with her. Fans of the 1960s television series will be reassured to hear Roger Moore's dulcet tones emanate from a radio at one point in the film.

Format: DVD
Kilmer makes a suitably dashing hero but is a little too fresh faced in the role for my liking. Having said that, the back story to Simon Templar goes some way to telegraph our hero's motivation as the saint of the title. The two leads look great together and their relationship is well defined. High production values meant that no expense was spared on the superb sets and locations. The interesting plot involves a corrupt Russian oligarch and the search for a free energy source, the direction is lively and not without humour. The villian isn't as ruthless as I would've liked and the Saint's penchant for not using weapons is it's only downfall when compared to similar themed movies.

This movie is a wonderful piece of escapism, pure and simple and as such, it's a great film.
Although the Simon Templar we see in the film isn't the one we've come to recognise through the literature and other movies, he is still a very likeable character in his own right.
A master of disguise, thief and all round ladies man, Simon Templar takes a job to steal the formula for cold fusion from a professor so that he can retire on the money that he'll make from the job.
All goes well until he meets the professor and finds her to be a young beautiful woman. He falls for her and decides not to steal the formula from her but the person who hired him threatens to kill her if he doesn't complete the job as planned.
So, he takes the formula and from then on he does his best to keep one jump ahead of everyone using high tech equipment and pure good luck as well as trying to stop the cold fusion formula getting into the wrong hands.
Does he get the girl? The ending will not disappoint.
There are three steps to becoming a saint - he may falter along the way but eventually he takes them. Great piece of evening's entertainment after a hard at work when you just want relax.

Picture the usual Saint format - Rich handsome man, fast car, fighting the evil criminal and always gets the girl. All that is here in Val Kilmers characterisation of the "The Saint" but this time we get to see a little deeper into the character of the man beneath the smooth veneer. The opening scenes begin with a small boy in a seemingly dark and forbidding Catholic orphanage, and you can easily discern from his treatment how he is very much a tortured a soul - nightmares of his childhood haunt him through the plot. Not so much a man brave and fearless, but driven by the pain of his past, the need to try and escape the hurt as well as stay ahead of the game. Add to this a generous sprinkling of state of the art James Bond gadetry, plus the added bonus of witnessing Val Kilmer as a master of disguise - changing both accent and appearance where the need arises and you have an extremely watchable and entertaining film. One of the things that make this a very interesting film is that despite learning a little more about The Saint's life he remains very much an enigma, maybe even to himself, where in one scene he stares long and hard into the mirror running through different accents, perhaps as though even he is asking himself who he really is at times. This constant undercurrent throughout the film is what helps to generate interest and leave the viewer wondering as to who The Saint in fact really is.
Val Kilmer has shown himself to be an extremely fine and versatile actor. I think if the producers want to have another weighty trip to the bank then a sequel to this with Val Kilmer (perhaps to develop the character of The Saint to an even greater extent) wouldnt go amiss. James Bond fans enjoy!

Format: DVD
I was unaware that this film had been made and purchased it more out of idle curiosity that inherent desire.

This (and any other 'Saint')will always be compared with Roger Moore and his 'super suave Saint'. However, if one is looking for something more akin to the genuine Chateris Saint of the novels - this is the one to get.

The Saint is a crook - no doubt about it, and this Saint acts like a crook. The Roger Moore TV Saint only got on TV because he was honest and never made a penny. The Charteris Saint is nothing like that. This is more true to the books, the theme music is very well composed and perfectly suited to the character.

It will suffer fron Moore comparison (unfairly) and there are (perhaps) too many disguises, but Saint readers rather than viewers will appreciate its more accurate allegiance.

This film was surprisingly entertaining and interesting, it had a nice story with plenty of twists and turns. Val Kilmer makes the perfect action hero as the Saint. He manages to outwit and outsmart the bad guys by adopting a variety of disguises and funny accents. Elisabeth Shue is beautifully stunning in this film, she actually adds some wit and charm into her character. The soundtrack was an absolutely amazing work of art! The Saint has all the elements that sustain the entertainment with plenty of action, suspence and romance. All in all I would recommend this movie for an evening when you have nothing to do and want to watch a movie that you'll definitely enjoy.

In recent years there have been several movies based on earlier TV shows. Some have been well received, others less so. Val Kilmer's interpretation of the Saint deserves all the accolades it gets. You could take out any reference to the character and still have a top movie. Kilmer plays his role in several guises, disguises if you want, and does it all very well indeed to help create an excellent film.
