The police car that's being used in the rooftop-chase scene is a Volkswagen Golf V. But when the horse falls off the roof and onto the car, the dented car we see in the next shot is an older model Golf IV. As a matter of fact, the license plate numbers are different. The newer Golf has a license plate released somewhere in 2004 and the Golf IV has a 2001 plate. See more »
You are not always getting what the title is literally suggesting as you know. So "Saint" has to be taken lightly in that regard (but I'm guessing you know that from the trailer and/or the synopsis here). And seeing the genre of the movie, you can guess where this one is heading, so don't hold that against it.
Still quite a few movies have gone that way in recent times (Rare Exports being a superior one) and you'be forgiven if you only wanted to see one of those movies (which as you can tell should be the other movie). But if you don't mind that and like to watch movies in general, you will be entertained with this one too. It really is more than decent and quite funny too.
