WHAT ARE CRITICS SAYING?

Film Threat by

The concept is intriguing and the car chases are pure adrenaline.
90

Dallas Observer by Bill Gallo

As is common in a Frankenheimer picture, the plot lines get a bit tangled in Ronin, but the atmosphere is tense, the style impeccable.
88

ReelViews by James Berardinelli

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.
70

L.A. Weekly by Manohla Dargis

A film in which the mechanics of the plot are far less interesting, and vital, then the interior landscape of men who exist outside the law.
67

Austin Chronicle by Marc Savlov

It remains head and shoulders above what little competition there is by virtue of its stellar casting, editing, and above all, Frankenheimer's fluid, explosive direction.
