Ronin is a 1998 action-thriller directed by John Frankenheimer. Set in post-Cold War Europe, it follows a group of former intelligence agents and criminals as they are hired by a mysterious client to steal a closely guarded briefcase. Amidst intense car chases and gunfights, notably through Paris, betrayals surface among the team. The film's title, Ronin, refers to the Japanese term for masterless samurai, reflecting the characters who work without clear allegiance. It stars an ensemble cast of Robert De Niro, Jean Reno, Stellan Skarsgard, Natascha McElhone, Jonathan Pryce, and Sean Bean. Ronin was well-received by critics, particularly for its car chases.
