Ronin (1998)


Synopsis...


In a world where loyalties are easily abandoned and allegiances can be bought, a new and deadlier terrorist threat has emerged - free-agent killers! Featuring "high-octane action" (Gene Shalit, Today), a "first-rate cast" (L.A. Daily News) and exhilirating car chases that "are nothing short of sensational" (The New York Times), Ronin is "the real deal in action fireworks" (Rolling Stone) directed by "a master of intelligent thrillers" (Roger Ebert).

The Cold War may be over, but a new world order keeps a group of covert mercenaries employed by the highest bidder. These operatives, known as "Ronin," are assembled in France by a mysterious client for a seemingly routine mission: steal a top-secret briefcase. But the simple task soon proves explosive as other underworld organizations vie for the same prize...and to get the job done, the members of Ronin must do something they've never done before - trust each other!
