    Full of mystery and intrigue, Ronin is an intense espionage thriller. The story follows a group of mercenaries hired by a mysterious woman to retrieve a briefcase, but when one of their own betrays them the mission is thrown into chaos. Featuring Robert De Niro, Jean Reno, Natascha McElhone, and Sean Bean, the casting is fairly good. The directing is also well-done, and creates an atmospheric tone that brings a lot of suspense to the film. Additionally, the action sequences are quite impressive, particularly the car chases. However, there's a level of ambiguity built into the plot that doesn't quite work. It has some weaknesses, but overall Ronin is a dark and provocative film.

    One of the better "recent" DeNiro films which isn't saying much. Ronin is like a poor man's French Connection when it so easily could have been elevated to the same level. Instead we just have decent entertainment.

    A thrilling suspense/action film with some unexpected turns. A great cast.

    The script is fairly mediocre, but Frankenheimer keeps it engaging with inventive chases and terrifyingly brutal action sequences.
