Saint has been infused with a plodding, hopelessly humorless sensibility that inevitably drains the viewer's interest and cements the movie's place as a missed opportunity of nigh epic proportions.

Little White Lies

Whether all these [genre] elements stack up into a compelling, or even interesting, whole is questionable, but they make for a strange chimney-top view of contemporary Holland, caught somewhere between myth and reality.

At 84 minutes, this is a breezy holiday horror which doesn't outstay its welcome and has a dash of wit to go along with the ridiculous premise, not to mention firm, stylish direction despite the low budget.

The story is superficial but the fast pace, gore and the easiness of the movies is compensating this flaw. The special effects might not be amazing, however,… More
