David Mamet wrote this screenplay under the name Richard Weisz as a gun for hire much like the masterless samurai of the films title who roamed Japan in the 19th century loyal only to themselves. A group of men with highly developed skills are called to a meeting in a deserted warehouse in Paris. Sam (Robert De Niro) an American may be ex-CIA. Vincent (Jean Reno) the terminally cool Frenchman is a mystery. Russian computer whiz Gregor (Stellan Skarsgaard) is presumably ex-KGB and Spence (Sean Bean) a British demolitions man and Larry (Skipp Suddith) another American round out the team. Theyve been hired by the IRA through liaison Deirdre (Natascha McElhone) to steal a briefcase of unknown contents somewhere in Europe. As the unit races from one spectacular location on the French Riviera to another the Tec-9 reigns the body count mounts some Russian gangsters get into the act and the betrayals come fast and furious. In a rare comic moment Sam stitches up his own bullet wound an act of tongue-in-cheek Hemingwayism and asks a friend to finish before he passes out. RONIN features an exceptional cast sumptuous locations and the kind of realistic high-coefficient-of-adversity car chases and action scenes that one expects from a director of John Frankenheimers skills.

Product Reviews

One of the better thrillers

Good casting and an excellent storyline make this very entertaining. Plenty of action and a brilliant car chase. A must see movie.
