This film uses the classic "Saint" theme tune that, though often thought of as starting with the 1960s television show, actually began in the 1930s and 1940s RKO Saint films, and appeared in the radio show with Vincent Price. This theme tune, having appeared in numerous post 1960s television adaptations of the Saint, serves as one of the most frequently and longest lasting theme tunes of a media franchise. See more »

I enjoyed watching this movie from beginning to end. Val Kilmer portrayed his role very well. Elisabeth Shue is very beautiful. She also played her character very well. The acting is superb and the scenes are top notch.
Most negative comments are from people who compared this movie to the original one. I haven't seen the original, but, If I did, I will not make comparisons.
The chemistry between Kilmer and Shue is real and natural. The flow keeps me glued to the screen till the end.
The background music is a good choice and comes in at the right moment. I would definitely recommend this movie to friends and relatives.
