"Your ally could become your enemy."


  • Director: John Frankenheimer
  • Genre: Mystery & Suspense, Action & Adventure,
  • Studio: United Artists
  • Subtitled | Widescreen | Duration: 125 Mins

This deliberately retro thriller from director John Frankenheimer resembles a 1970s European espionage caper in atmosphere and style, and bounds along at a cracking pace. While the action is engrossing, there's also a sobering political slant as Robert De Niro travels to Paris to join an international gang of criminals (including the always watchable Jean Reno) who have been hired by Irish revolutionary Natascha McElhone to steal an important suitcase. No excuse is missed for a frenzied car chase in the Bullitt tradition, or the chance to add a menacing hard edge to the deliciously convoluted plot. By the way, the word "ronin" is taken from a Japanese legend about 47 samurai who avenge the killing of their master and then commit mass suicide.
