This review is from: The Saint [DVD]  (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.
