Saint > Wiki


Simon Templar (Val Kilmer), AKA The Saint, realizes his skill for trickery during his childhood in a Far East orphanage. He uses his natural born gifts, including a penchant for bizarre and effective disguises, to obtain things for people which they can not obtain themselves. When he is hired by a Russian crime boss (Rade Serbedzija, BEFORE THE RAIN) to use his chameleon-like abilities to lift the secrets of cold fusion from Oxford-based scientist Emma Russell (Elizabeth Shue), he has little idea he might fall in love with his victim--or be double-crossed by his snakelike employer. Based on the character created by author Leslie Chateris, which spawned dozens of novels and a popular 1960s British television series starring Roger Moore.

Pros: Kilmer     Cons: ......     I have never seen one movie where one actor could change is appearance so completely as Val Kilmer does in The Saint .      Kilmer/Saint/Simon Templar is hired to steal a formula that deals with the production of energy. This formula is in the nimble hands of Emma Russell (Elisabeth Shue). Templar, generally a loner, falls for the irrepressible Russell, but must still relieve her of her nasty little formula.   …
