Absolute rubbish.<br/><br/>I endured 20 minutes of this tripe before I wanted to wash my eyes and brain with bleach.<br/><br/>Poor acting combined with cheap looking sets and filming doth make a bad rehash. This film (and I use the term lightly) is a huge GAPING blemish on the name The Saint. <br/><br/>It&#39;s like someone thought it would be a great idea to do Carry On The Saint, bad lines / stupid &#39;jokes&#39; delivered in abysmal style means I couldn&#39;t take this effort even vaguely serious. So much so I just HAD to come comment on just how bad it was and I don&#39;t post often. Generally only when something has affected me right to the core with just how bad it actually is. <br/><br/>Avoid if you even saw one episode of the original as it will ruin it for you, forever (as it actually has Roger Moore (who hasn&#39;t aged well) in it, I presume to try and add some validity to it). If you have no idea what the original The Saint is and are looking for a crappy action film with juvenile one liners then, well, maybe still avoid unless it was free and you having nothing better to do. Although even watching dry paint would be preferable in my opinion.<br/><br/>It is The Saint by name only, sadly.

The Saint was intended to be a relaunched television series starring Adam Rayner as Simon Templar. A few years after the initial pilot, there were some additional footage shot to turn it into a feature length direct to pay TV release.<br/><br/>Simon Templar also known as The Saint is called on by a man who has robbed billions for the shadowy organisation he works from a poor African nation. The man works for the Fixer (Ian Ogilvy) who is most unhappy that his right hand man has grown a conscious, he wants the money back and so he has kidnapped his daughter.<br/><br/>Templar has to find his daughter as well as evading an FBI agent who is determined to track him down. However when Templar sees a certain ring, it brings back memories of the past and a betrayal by someone he was once close to.<br/><br/>Ever since the interminably dull Simon Dutton television movies from 1989, the reputation of The Saint on screen has suffered. The viewer wants something more than just a posh gentleman but slightly shady adventurer who comes to the rescue of a damsel in distress in some exotic location.<br/><br/>This film has extensive location shooting and still at times looks cheap with green screen. Rayner seems to get there as Templar at the end, it helps that he seems comfortable with some of the action footage. However the story is just workmanlike and generic.<br/><br/>The film has the gimmick of actually having the Three Saints. Ogilvy plays the villain with some links to the Knights Templar and he certainly seems to be enjoying himself. The late Sir Roger Moore pops up as well giving his successor, Ogilvy a telling off.

This movie had potential to be good, but fell short. <br/><br/>It tried in numerous occasions to lift its game but with low budget looking sets, questionable dialog, sketchy editing, accompanied with generic background music, sees this movie dragged back down.<br/><br/>I think the two main actors - Adam Rayner &amp; Eliza Dushku - did a reasonable enough job, but some of the supporting cast are left wanting. <br/><br/>I would love to see a modern take of The Saint that befits the original, but sadly this movie isn&#39;t it. Having said that, they classed this as a TV Movie which is appropriate since this feels like a two TV episodes in one.
