So bad, deliriously bad, but also one of the best action films of all time. The car chases are essentially unrivaled and the shootouts are top-notch, they just happen to be situated between some of the most overblown plotting/dialogue ever devised. I love it
John Frankenheimer just knew how to make a great thriller and this well knit ensemble of badasses presented in this film are no exception. Why haven't Robert DeNiro and Jean Reno made more movies together?
Frankenheimer's thrill a minute film sets the tone for the bourne films. Unbelievable action pieces that will leave your jaw on he floor. Not to mention DeNiro in full action mode. A true thinking man's action film! Flawed at times but who cares with car chases this good!
Unadulterated mcguffin chasing goodness. I was surprised by how engrossed I was from the very beginning. The movie is gorgeous and the cast has a great chemistry. It may be blasphemous but I would love to see a sequel. Mostly to see DeNiro and Reno together again. Their pairing is what made this movie so strong, they brought the best out in one another, and I'd love to see it again. Light Mifune vibe from DeNiro.
A masterpiece and auteuristic in execution, despite being fully depthless entertainment. Ronin is easily one of the best action films of the 1990's, if not ever. Period. It's sleek, cool, and full of twists and turns and somehow has tension despite marginal character dimension. The scant details are purposeful: it's purely a job for these professionals, akin to Frankenheimer who keeps the momentum up always.
Buonissimo film d'azione diretto da un grande mestierante del genere come Frankenheimer. Lo script non è proprio il massimo,nonostante l'espediente riuscitissimo del MacGuffin,i tradimenti e gli snodi a volte sembrano messi lì per vivacizzare le cose,ma tutto ciò è compensato da un action di primo piano,con l'inseguimento contromano che sale davvero tanto. De Niro e Renò un pò imbolsiti,ma cmq regge bene.
The best car chase movie ever. Bullitt can kiss Ronin's ass to be blunt. Beyond that there is some great on screen chemistry between the ensamble and Frankenheimer keeps the direction old school and engaging. They sure don't make them like this anymore. Shame...
