Ronin is really a great movie

I'm sitting here watching Ronin on TV and realizing I really should buy the DVD. It is just such a great movie. And it would be probably be even better in widescreen.

Now, it's no Citizen Kane or Deer Hunter, it's just a good flick. The director, Frankenheimer, redefined the movie car chase in this movie and even managed to surround it by a pretty good plot.

Just thought I would let you all know.

Ronin is the best movie I have evr seen.There are some great gunfights and a great plot . and that car chese is the second best I have ever seen(still not as good as the tommorow never dies carpark chase. An RPG or a bazooka always sets off a good car chase. But does anyone know what the irish are actually trying to steal? I never got that bit

Ronin is excellent. I have it on DVD. The best car chase movie ever. The director of this movie made a movie in the '70s call Grand Prix It also has some great car scenes. Also check out The French Connection for another great car chase.

There is another great movie with an actor from Ronin called Bravo Two Zero. It stars Sean Bean(the fake former SAS guy in Ronin). It is about an SAS squad in Iraq during the Gulf War. I don't want to give too much away, but if you get the chance, see it.
