Absolutely boring and generic spy thriller. I predicted every plot twist and nothing at all surprised or amazed me. Yawn.

Rating of
3/4 

Former special forces soldiers and intelligence operatives—Spence (Sean Bean), Larry (Skipp Sudduth), Gregor (Stellan Skarsgård), Vincent (Jean Reno), and Sam (Robert De Niro) are tasked to steal a mysterious briefcase. Much like Pulp Fiction, the contents of the case were never revealed except to Seamus O'Rourke (Jonathan Pryce). The plot can be confusing but the action never ceases. Ronin boasts great car chases, CIA, Russian mobs and friendship among its figures.

Spies, terrorists, Europeans, treachery, friendship. Great car chases. This one really can be watched repeatedly.

One of Robert DeNiro's last "serious" films before he would appear in anything and everything. Frankenheimer mishandles some of the dramatic material making it a bit talky, but the action is superb. The minutes long insane car chase should be viewed by any action movie lover.

"Ronin" by Yojimbo

A group of mercenaries are hired to steal a mysterious case from a heavily armed organisation. Although it has a similar set up to Reservoir Dogs, Ronin is a rather more "adult" affair, echoing cold war thrillers spiced up with a liberal smattering of action. Veteran director John Frankenheimer obviously devoted a lot of time to the shoot outs and car chases which have a visceral realism lacking in most Hollywood thrillers; in fact the whole film is beautifully engineered and features a superb cast making it all but technically flawless. It also has a very "European" flavour, not only because of the continental locations, but also the lack of shaky cam or over-saturated colour filters and a cast featuring real actors instead of underwear models make it feel a million miles from your avera...
