Mamet was so upset by the Writers Guild's refusal to give him sole writing credit that he chose to be listed under a pseudonym; turns out he unwittingly made the right decision.

More fruitful by far to take the auteurist view and say that for Frankenheimer, Ronin is surrender.

As relações entre os personagens e as seqüências de perseguição são fascinantes, mas a tentativa de "amarrar" a trama acaba comprometendo um roteiro que não precisava disso.

Frankenheimer goes out, well, if not exactly on top, at least on a high note with this slightly insubstantial but stylistically sophisticated song in a minor key

Depicts the amoral world of masterless warriors whose lives are filled with unending violence and betrayal.

What carries the film is the style, which is fast, furious, and impeccably paced.

It is a tribute to the film's earnestness that we are able to overlook most of its absurdities and simply revel in its deeds.

The stunts make a considerably more vivid impression than any of the movie's potpourri of characters.

Ronin is a generally familiar if murky and occasionally pretentious exercise.

A somewhat muddled yarn that's more tease than delivery.

But despite some attempts to make this a deeper than usual actioner, Frankenheimer's film is just your typical actioner.
