After a bit of a hiccup where the post didn’t appear properly, my Ronin review is up over at The Fandom Post. This is one that I dug at the time, but it’s really appreciated over time in my mind.
Couple of thoughts not addressed in my review:
- This may be Robert DeNiro’s last genuinely good movie, unless we count that Rocky and Bullwinkle movie where he played Fearless Leader.
- Jean Reno is awesome, and I’m still mad he was a bad guy in the first Mission Impossible movie. Way to not get his charm, Brian DePalma.
- David Mamet wrote this, and he also wrote and directed another grimy, trust no one crime movie: Spartan. Y’all should check that out sometime. It’s awesome.
- More proof that Sean Bean only dies in terrible movies/TV shows. He doesn’t die here, and he doesn’t die in Silent Hill.
- It’s pretty messed up that they kill Katarina Witt.
Anyway, here’s the review.
