    As is common in a Frankenheimer picture, the plot lines get a bit tangled in Ronin, but the atmosphere is tense, the style impeccable.
  2. It's a welcome throwback to the days when the world didn't have to end or tanker trucks explode to get an action audience's attention.

    Ronin manages to remain focused on the plot and the characters, even while staging increasingly complicated pyrotechnic set pieces and offering its share of white-knuckle moments.

    Ronin represents an exhilarating return to form for Frankenheimer.
  5. What an impeccably crafted film this is -- slightly impoverished in theme, perhaps, but so rich everywhere else that it seems rude to notice.
  6. Ronin can be watched as appreciatively for its hard-boiled performances as for its visceral excitement.

    Pretty good all around. Had a good amount of intrigue, thrills, and action, to keep your attention throughout this one. It was a little confusing at times, but wrapped up pretty nicely. Full Review »
