David Mamet wrote this screenplay under the name Richard Weisz, as a gun for hire, much like the masterless samurai of the film's 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. They've 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 Frankenheimer's skills.

Good film. I'll always remember this as the one where De Niro got acting lessons from Reno & Bean.

cracking film,if only to see how an audi S8 SHOULD be driven

When is this out in HD? Awesome car chase :-D

Watched this last week on blu-ray the picture quality was poor , you'd better off buying this i'm sure with a decent upscaler the picture would be similar.

100% agree. In no particular order the most highly regarded car chases in movies are from:

1) Bullet
2) French Connection
3) Ronin


Another, though not highly thought of but one of my personal favourites, is from The Rock :w00t:.

Ordered and voted hot..... thanks.

i went to my local carboot today ( i havent been there for nearly a year) and i was shocked to see original (and not pirate) DVDs selling for £1 and thats by many sellers..the last time i went you will expect to pay £10 for 3 films....i bagged 11 good movies for £10 and all in pristine conditions (box and disk)...that will make HMV prices look astronomical at £2.99....the only problem is at this rate i will not have a space to store all these DVDs

Reno - Yes. Bean - Are you joking? Bean is appallingly bad in this.

Great film though - even though De Niro says Here-Ford instead of Her-e-ford (that bit really annoys me!!)
