Buy it... if you'd like a good James Bond imitation score that serves as the best blend of symphony, choir, and electronics that Graeme Revell has ever achieved.

Avoid it... if the score's darker, more ambient half is too similar to Revell's usual electronic output to ignore.

Revell
The Saint: (Graeme Revell) On the British side of the big screen adaptations of famous old television spy series, one thing The Saint definitely had going in it's favor is that it wasn't as bad as The Avengers. Director Philip Noyce certainly had high ambitions for The Saint, replacing Roger Moore with Val Kilmer and offering top notch production qualities to perhaps, if successful, start a franchise of Saint-related films to rival the James Bond franchise. Critical and public response to The Saint was immediately poor, however, and the project quickly faded into obscurity. Surprisingly, this failure was not due to the hot-headed Kilmer, whose performance was actually quite convincing and funny; instead, The Saint was lacking that "special something" that would appeal to audiences above and beyond similar material being offered by the Bond franchise. One aspect that was definitely not lacking was Graeme Revell's score, which continues to serve as an anomaly in his career even ten years later. With a career overflowing with ambient, synthetic creations from his electronic library, Revell has never been associated much with dynamic orchestral scores. Ironically, his writing for The Saint in 1997 would foreshadow David Arnold's rejuvenation of the Bond franchise music more than any other, presenting a style of orchestral and synthetic blend that would serve well as an entry in Arnold's Bond endeavors. For The Saint, Noyce obviously wanted a blend of the old harmonic romanticism of the John Barry Bond scores and a touch of Revell's own electronic soundscape, and the result is a highly varied score that would seem more at home in fellow countryman Craig Armstrong's career than Revell's. Nevertheless, the score for this film is an easy highlight in both the film and in Revell's entire career. For fans of the original series, Revell even appeals to nostalgia by quoting Edwin Astley's old theme and integrating it into several cues.
