Released:
1998
Rating:
R

Ronin is a thriller centering on a group of ex-special forces and intelligence agents pulled together in a mission to grab a suitcase but as their plans come into action, American Sam and French Vincent discover that not everyone is on the same side. When an IRA member Deirdre pulls together a group consisting of all former military ops of various origins, such as Spence, Larry, Gregor, Vincent, and Sam, they are given only the smallest of details. Their job is to grab a briefcase, contents unknown, before competing Russian gangsters grab it before they do. As the chase begins, the members of their freelance team begins to drop as Gregor double-crosses them, Deidre's handler Seamus O'Rourke has made some plans of his own, and only Sam and Vincent are in it to complete their original mission.
