Format: Blu-ray
Hello, I purchased this version of Ronin on Blu-ray expecting more then the standard DVD have, unfurtunatlly I was incorrect in doing so. The movie by it self it's amazing however the Blu-ray of it it's just not good for it at all. Single-layer BD-25 with a 1080p/MPEG-2 codec that does little to spruce up the image. With no supplements or even what the standard DVD have. Simply in a nutshell don't buy this Blu-ray version of Ronin.

The company should be a shame to release such a great movie like Ronin with this poor quality and cheap, and only money grab version of Blu-ray ..

“I really don’t know how Amazon could say this is helpful,when you have Twelve,count them Twelve
different posters (pictures) of the same movie (Ronin) and all has a different price,some as high as Can $191.91.
but that’s not the problem (price),every review they have here is listed to the Twelve different movies,
the problem I have ,I would like to purchased one, but which one is the question,some reviews are not so good
for the product in question,like quality of the picture, the car chase is the only thing that give the movie a bigger
feel,other than that what a great movie,
So I don’t know if you will see this you people at Amazon,but it really don’t help when you say, Most Helpful Customer Reviews,
Love To Buy But???

Tight and gritty story line and it moves at a fast pace. Good acting and best car chase since "Bullit". This is one of those movies that has unpredictable twists and turns as well as keeping the viewer in suspense. Too violent to be a family movie but a great film.

Interesting story and some of the best car chases ever. Great shots of France and especially of Paris. Excellent film

Top notch acting especially from DeNiro (no surprise) and Jean Reno. Plenty of well done action and great locations. Can't miss spending the time to watch this one.

"Ronin" is wildly entertaining and highly crafted. Some think De Niro was in a 'trough' when he made this film; instead, I feel he is -- quite simply -- exceptional and REAL, as always DeNiro is doing nothing he hasn't done a 1,000 times before in this role but it's precisely *because* he does such characters all the time that he's so good at it. Jean Reno is equally capable of matching De Niro on screen and they form a nice relationship that doesn't grate. The other actors are all acceptable although not outstanding.

The plot is decent, but not dripping with originality. Look it's a terrorist organization. And look it's the IRA again and the Northern Ireland situation depicted with all the lack-of-knowledge Hollywood is so good at. The double crossing is amusing and makes sense - these characters aren't exactly on the side of angels are they? The action sequences are great fun too and, it must be admitted, feature the best car chases of any movie I've seen from the 90s. Which is saying something. On a down side to the plot it gets a tad ridiculous when, over the course of the movie, approximately half of France's population gets wiped out in the various car chases and gun battles... it's a tad over the top (though adrenalin pumping)

John Frankenheimer directing was very competent. The chase scenes are done particularly well with the cameras mounted to the front of the car to give you the feeling of speed. It's what helps lift this movie up that bit more from the other dross. Other than that I'd recommend this movie, especially for fans of the heist genres or those who like car chases. You won't be bored ever and will spend an enjoyable couple of hours viewing it.

I'm still not quite sure why David Mamet used a pseudonym in the credits, but the movie absolutely drips with his rhythms of speech. It complements the action well, otherwise the movie would be a bore outside of the car chases. The unique element is the band of mercenaries who cannot trust each other long enough to complete their mission. The cast is great: De Niro and Jonathan Pryce are Mamet veterans. Jean Reno is quite at home playing the Jean Reno character. Natasha McElhone is painfully beautiful, and one of the most capable actresses working today. She more than holds her own with the boys. But the movie's greatest strength isn't the actors or Mamet's hypnotic chit-chat, but Frankenheimer's car chases, which are "au natural". Nobody working with digital effects has generated the same level of excitement and realism, no matter what genre. The European locations are great, the cars are great, and the characters are well-rounded. Oh, and we've got a suitcase filled with who-knows-what, a la "Pulp Fiction."

"Ronin", is for everyone who enjoys Robert DeNiro, a great spy tale, a host of great supporting actors, and some of the more amazing car chases filmed on Europe's very narrow, pre-automotive designed streets. The word Ronin describes a Samurai who has lost his master, and in this film, the word serves as a metaphor for cold warriors that no longer have the same Cold War to fight. The threats are not gone only changed, so the great games that have played host to a variety of films and movies are still available to talented writers and directors who can adapt.
A great deal of the action takes place at high speed on either very narrow urban roads, or wildly twisting mountain stretches that lack the same manner of safety barriers we are accustomed to in The USA, that make the chase scenes all the more amazing. The director and other key players who made the film have racing backgrounds which allowed them to bring a type of realism that goes beyond the typical Hollywood chase.
Jean Reno, Natascha Mcelhone, Stellan Skarsgard, Sean Bean, and Jonathan Pryce all make for a wonderful ensemble cast. The chase is for a case, and the cast that is assembled are allegedly a team in the hunt for a box that no one knows the contents of. The traditional players like the Russians are involved, the CIA, and then the new Russians along with the Irish, and members of agencies that either are active or are not, you never know until the film ends. And even when it does, the DVD offers an alternate ending that changes in a very dramatic manner how the film you just watched concluded.
"Ronin", is a very good film, a definite cut above the average, and well worth the one minute and two hours of your time it will occupy.
