Two Line Reviews - #393

Movie: Ronin (1998)

Plot: A group of freelancing experts are hired for a covered operation on snatching a mysterious package before it reaches the hands of either the Russians or the Irish both of which gangs are hell-bent on getting their hands on it!

What Works?

  • The mystery that shrouds the film's plot is what makes it tick; Kudos to Frankenheimer and Zeik for that.
  • Robert de Niro is scintillating as ever and here again, showing bursts of temper and cool, he shows real stuff!
  • Aiding him adequately are Jean Reno and the beautiful Natascha McElhone; The chase-action sequences are pulsating.
  • Music by Elia Cmiral sets the mood brilliantly right from the start!
Action that sends your adrenaline up!
