A good action movie, but some viewers may be disappointed
Well, what do you expect from a "mainstream" action movie?
A good plot, nice looking actors, plenty of suspense...
well, suspense you get, and nice looking actors as well,
but the plot is somewhat weak. So don't expect too much.
From my personal view point this is a movie, contrary to
its weak plot, that I did like a lot. The movie got me
really hooked on Elisabeth Shue, and I really liked the
love story that develops between her and the character
that Mr. Kilmer portrays. I like the scene where she
looks into the mirror and is completely overwhelmed
by her impression that the character that the "Saint"
portrays seems to have fallen in love with her.
So somehow I was hoping for the two of them to finally
"get" each other, and it's only very rarely that
I do identify with the characters in a love story
movie that much. Mild spoiler, I did like the
ending as it wasn't an overly "happy" one but
not a sad one either... but rather one that
allows for the character to continue.
Bottom line, there are a *lot* much more awful
movie to waste a nice weekend afternoon or night

Val and Elizabeth have great chemistry in this movie.. well done.
A guilty pleasure
I love this movie. As a movie buff, I must admit, objectively, this is a
bad movie. The writing is ridiculous, the plot is convoluted, and Val
Kilmer's accents are bizarre. But I love this movie. It is that
combination of danger and romance that makes for great fantasy. The
chemistry between Kilmer and Shue holds this movie together. It is a
delight to watch them realize that their skin deep attraction goes much
deeper. If you can suspend your disbelief and just enjoy the ride, the
Saint is a fun movie. Despite its flaws, the Saint is a guilty pleasure
indulge in when your own life is lacking in explosions, gun fights, and
sudden, passionate romances..
