    Synopsis


    The Saint
    Based on the popular novels about that other suave, globe-trotting man of action, this genre picture from director Phillip Noyce mixed romance and character development with dangerous stunts, geopolitical intrigue, and a variety of elaborate disguises, resulting in an uneven stew of a spy thriller. Val Kilmer is Simon Templar, a classy, cunning master thief and "man of a thousand faces" who cribs his phony names from those of obscure saints and sells his illegal services to the highest bidder. Hired by an ambitious Russian politician (Rade Serbedzija) to steal the formula for cold fusion, Templar falls in love with Dr. Emma Russell (Elisabeth Shue), the frail Oxford scientist who has unlocked the secret of the process. Back in Moscow, the thief debates whether to betray his new love or the powerful madman who is paying him millions, until he discovers that his client is concealing oil reserves that could save his freezing people. Often seen as an also-ran to the legendary James Bond, Templar, the creation of author Leslie Charteris, in fact predated the first Bond novel by decades and probably inspired Ian Fleming in his creation of the debonair agent. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

      The Saint is a great Spy Movie. Its the Story of A spy that gets his hands on a very valuable formula that falls in love with the Scientist that developed it. This movie is fast moving and thrilling until the very end. Its a definite must see. This movie stars some of the most talented actors and actress's in Hollywood. The Incredibly beautiful Elizabeth Shue and the astounding Val Kilmer.

      I got a craving for some Val Kilmer! This is not the best movie ever made. It's kind of a poor man's Bond film. Just the same, it's a fun romp through Russia in the years after communism fell and is almost believable given the then political climate... Except for the cold fusion part... Very enjoyable and literally unbelievable movie.

      It was great that Val Kilmer donned so many disguises in this movie. This movie was good throughout and kept my attention. This was the " classic" Kilmer from back in the day and featured Elizabeth Shue, as well. She is one of the actresses that I like to watch. This movie has an interesting plot and action elements as well.

      Very enjoyable film. The chemistry between Elizabeth Shue and Val Kilmer is awesome! Great story about a thief with many tricks and disguises who falls for a beautiful scientist. The bad guys play it very well too. Plenty of action and adventure!

      This is perhaps Val Kilmer's best performance. The story is also as clever as it is entertaining.
