Plot outline: Ronin is the Japanese word used for Samurai without a master. In this case, the Ronin are outcast specialists of every kind, whose services are available to everyone - for money. Dierdre (undoubtedly from Ireland) hires several Ronin to form a team in order to retrieve an important suitcase from a man who is about to sell it to the Russians. After the mission has been completed successfully, the suitcase immediately gets switched by a member of the team who seems to work into his own pocket. The complex net of everyone tricking everyone begins to surface slowly, and deadly... Summary written by Julian Reischl {julian.reischl@stud.uni-muenchen.de} I protagonisti sono un gruppo di ex agenti segreti disoccupati e pronti a mettersi al servizio del miglior offerente (RONIN era il nome dato nel Giappone medievale ai samurai caduti in disgrazia dopo la morte del loro signore e quindi costretti a vagare per il paese in cerca di occupazione o pronti a diventare banditi). Sam, ex agente della CIA, è assoldato da misteriosi individui per recuperare una preziosa valigetta, che fa gola alla mafia russa ed all'IRA (guarda caso, quando non ci sono più i nemici comunisti!). Il tutto condito da inseguimenti mozzafiato fra la Costa Azzurra e Parigi. Summary written by rosebud6 A woman assembles a team of professional killers from all over the world to get a hold on a certain case with some mysterious content. The case is in the hands of some ex-KGB spies and there are many people and organizations that will do anything to get it Summary written by Anonymous
Comment: Very well done, fine cast-DeNiro, Bean, Reno(the best!), Skarsgard, Pryce..Liked the intrigue and shifting sides, liked the great carchase up the wrong side of the freeway, thought that this was much like the French Connection. Nice to see a slightly old fashioned shoot-em up, without too much Hollywood razzle dazzle thrown in. Gritty, at times confusing(what is in that box again?)-and I don't Really think the skating rink would be a good place to make a Swap; but still.... Good show! *** outta ****, something to watch and watch again.
