Simon Templar (The Saint), is a thief for hire, whose latest job to steal the secret process for cold fusion puts him at odds with a traitor bent on toppling the Russian government, as well as the woman who holds its secret.
Simon Templar has no real family, no real home and Simon Templar isn't even his real name. Yet Simon Templar, also known as the Saint for his use of creating false identities using the names of Catholic saints, is one of the world's most successful thieves. Slick, debonair and a master of disguise, Simon manages to outwit the police again and again. On his next job Simon is hired by the Russian Mafia to steal a cold fusion energy formula from scientist Emma Russel, however the mission backfires as he falls for the pretty, intelligent scientist. Simon and his new love must now manage to outwit the Russian Mafia and work out the energy formula before the worst happens and the US is affected forever.Written by

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.
