Dr. Lev Botvin:

I liked this movie. Not as "The Saint" but as an elaborate action movie with a twist. Val Kilmer bears nothing in him that even gets close to Roger Moore's character - but if you look away from that and try to see it as an ordinary film, it's really good.
First of all, Val Kilmer performs fairly well, despite his weird accents. I really liked his artist type guy who seduces Emma Russell, he was great fun.
As for the story, well...I didn't bother to check for anomalies, I knew I'd find plenty. I only have two more things to say:
1. Elisabeth Shue is absolutely stunningly beautiful in this film.
2. The cool car that we only get to see a few seconds is a Volvo C70, a worthy replacement for the Volvo P1800 that Moore's Saint drove around in.
