Above average action/intrigue flick.
“Ronin” puts DeNiro at the center as a mercenary who is hired by people unknown to nab a case with contents unknown for reasons unknown. This international intrigue thriller set in France has all the usual Hollywood action excesses (car chases ad nauseam, stunts, pyro, firefights, etc.), and excellent cast, and even a bit of a story which keeps us, the audience, wondering what’s in the case, why do they want it, etc. during most of the film. “Ronin” is all business from the get-go and a cut above the average Hollywood formula action flick. Worth a look for those who few who may have missed it.
