Review Unlike many thrillers of this sort, which devolve into a series of mindless action sequences, 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. The film is consistently exciting, if a little overlong, and never fails to keep us guessing. Ronin also snubs a few conventions of the genre. For example, when a character departs before the midpoint, he does not suddenly re-appear later in the movie to either (a) cause trouble, (b) take revenge, or (c) save the day. That's certainly not the only reason to see this picture, but it's one of several small pleasures that, when they're all combined, make Ronin a significant cut above the average thriller.

Review I enjoyed the film on two levels: for its skill and its silliness. The actors are without exception convincing in their roles, and the action makes little sense. Consider the Stellan Skarsgard character, who is always popping out his laptop computer and following the progress of chase scenes with maps and what I guess are satellite photos. Why does he do this? To affirm to himself that elsewhere something is indeed happening, I think.
