Back in the 90's great movies came out so often in rapid sequence that a few gems get overlooked. This is one of those. The suspense of disbelief can be a bit much at times, but all the elements which made 90's movies great are all here. Romantic plot, espionage, government take-over, etc... This is worth a fresh look as it stand very much above the current crop of products Hollywood is pushing out.

I liked this movie. There were some very cool parts in it, like when he constantly changes his identity.

Val Kilmer's Best Role Ever??

Val Kilmer plays Simon Templar aka The Saint, a guy-for-hire who steals things for the highest bidder. Simon steals a microchip from the leader of the Russian Mafia Ivan Tretiak, played by Rade Serbedzija, and is then hired by the same guy to steal the formula for a scientific experiment called Cold Fusion. Of course, the person who has the formula for Cold Fusion just happens to be a beautiful young nave scientist, played by Elisabeth Shue. The Saint falls in love with her and for the first time becomes vulnerable placing him in a predicament of fulfilling his professional obligations or staying with the innocent young scientist. Supporting roles were terrific, especially by Valery Nikolaev as Tretiak's cold-as-ice son, a worthy adversary for our Saint who shines in this movie as a prof...
