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!

    DeNiro and Reno are great together. The whole cast is excellent in this well acted and directed action thriller. It delivers on everything you want from a movie like this. It also holds up. It's as good today as when it was released. As I said in the title, it's a must watch if you like this genre.

    Got this because it was in the bargain discount bin and I like Robert DeNiro. It was to me, just O.K. It tends to leave you filling in some of the blanks yourself. Movies that are more current and newer than this one, make it seem dated.

    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.

    The espionage in Paris was a great setting for the movie plot. The movie chose a variety cast for the mercenary team that was doing the operation to obtain a highly guarded brief case that had a lot of money and covert information in it.

    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.

    I got this DVD to give as a Christmas gift. The recipient has raved over it since receiving it. I've watched it with him & found it to be a great movie full of action & unusual twists. Both he and I highly recommend this movie.

    I first saw this when it originally opened way back when. Action, intrigue and , oh yeah, action. Nice twist and great picture on Blu-Ray for $5.
