The Saint - Commentary Review

Phillip Noyce directs and comments on his work. Sometimes, when I watch a film that has a lot of potential and then it falls on its face I wonder what happened. Phillip Noyce is kind enough to inadvertently tell us in his on his long winded boring ass commentary. Phillip is consumed by details, particularly by sound layering. He had as many as 16 different layers of sound in a scene. What is wrong with that you say? Well nothing, but he probably should have focused on that after fixing at his abysmal plot and equally abysmal characters. It comes through very clearly that he was micromanaging the wrong things, and not paying attention to the big picture. And in conclusion -- dumbass.
