Synopsis


Ronin
John Frankenheimer directed this $20 million international action thriller from a screenplay by Richard Weisz (pseudonym for David Mamet) and J.D. Zeik. In Paris, Irish organizer Deidre (Natascha McElhone) assembles a team to grab a mysterious briefcase from criminals. They are never told who hired them or the true identity of their targets. The hired specialists: Former CIA officer Sam (Robert De Niro), former Euro intelligence agent Vincent (Jean Reno), German electronics expert Gregor (Stellan Skarsgard), driver Larry (Skip Sudduth), and British weapons wrangler Spence (Sean Bean). After a Seine shootout, the action moves to the South of France, with a recon mission in Cannes, and a chase that brings everyone to Nice. Inevitable betrayals ensue, along with more pursuits. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi

    A high quality remaster to one of the best action/spy movies of the last 20 years. This movie has never looked this good on your screen. Everyone talks about the incredible car chase scene in this movie, but this movie is so much more than that! If it has been a while since you last saw Ronin, don't watch it again unless it is this copy. It is worth it!

    Ronin is a very solid no holds barred action movie. This blu ray from Arrow Video-upgrades the quality of the previous MGM disc by a lot. The extras remain solid. A worthwhile buy if you love the movie and want the upgrade-it's noticeable.

    Upgraded from the previous release to get all the behind the scenes stuff. If you already own, not worth the upgrade unless like me you want all the special features. Film is great and action scenes are tense.

    This is a stylistic, Japan/Asian style movie that was just ok for me. I'm into Asian films, but this didn't know if it wanted to be that or an American take on it. Ultimately didn't do either well.

    If you like Keanu Reaves acting, this is a great movie. But Keanu is essentially the same personality in all his movies, just bare that in mind. Cool visuals, decent story.

    Wrong Movie

    The movie is not right for the view. The Pic poster is 47 Ronin and the movie view is RONIN.

    I didn't feel the characters, and everything was just so blah.
