About the Movie

John Frankenheimer directed this $20 million international action thriller from a screenplay by Richard Weisz (pseudonym for David Mamet) and J.D. Zeik. In Paris, Irish organizer Deidre (Natascha McElhone) assembles a team to grab a mysterious briefcase from criminals. They are never told who hired them or the true identity of their targets. The hired specialists: Former CIA officer Sam (Robert De Niro), former Euro intelligence agent Vincent (Jean Reno), German electronics expert Gregor (Stellan Skarsgard), driver Larry (Skip Sudduth), and British weapons wrangler Spence (Sean Bean). After a Seine shootout, the action moves to the South of France, with a recon mission in Cannes, and a chase that brings everyone to Nice. Inevitable betrayals ensue, along with more pursuits.

Customer Reviews

Probably the best Heist movie ever

I first saw this at the movies and it was love at first sight, I really like the acting between Natascha McElhone and Robert DeNiro. The musical score is brilliant especially the main theme made by composer Elia Cmiral. It really is enjoyable on so many levels and remains one of DeNiros best movies to date.

Ronin rocks!

Two words: Robert DiNiro. Jean Reno is solid as always. The plot will grab you. Oh, and did I mention that Ronin has the best chase scene ever? Take my advice: get this movie!

One of My Favorite Car Chases

This movie has one of my favorite car chases, and is a great action movie. The only disappointing thing is that you never really figure out what was in the case. A must see.
