Ronin | 1998 | R | - 1.8.6

A group of unemployed intelligence agents are hired to steal a box and try to complete the job even when they're double-crossed by their employers. With Robert De Niro, Stellan Skarsgard, Jean Reno, Jonathan Pryce, Natascha McElhone, Skipp Sudduth, Sean Bean, Michel Lonsdale and Féodor Atkine. [2:01]

SEX/NUDITY 1 - A woman climbs onto a man's lap and they kiss. It's implied that they go on to more serious stuff. We briefly see a few women in bras.

VIOLENCE/GORE 8 - Lots of gunfire exchanged is in several different scenes; lots of people are shot and killed (we see some bloody wounds and in a few instances we see blood spurting from wounds and lots of blood on clothing). A man is shot in the forehead; we see a dark hole where the bullet entered and then see him lying in a pool of blood. A bloody, wounded man crawling away from a car is shot and killed. A man in a car is shot in the head and blood splatters on the window. A little girl is nearly shot. A man pours alcohol on a man's very bloody knee; we also see a man cut a man's side open with a scalpel and pulls a bullet out with clamps (the wound is very bloody and we hear lots of squishy noises as the man tries to find the bullet). We see a man who's neck has been slit from ear-to-ear (his neck and clothing are very bloody). Several fights in which people are punched, shoved and kicked (after one fight, a man's face is bloody and we later see scabs and bruises on his face). After a man tackles another, they fall over a railing and tumble down some steps (we see a little blood on one of the men's faces). Several car chases; several cars are bombed and burst into flames, many crash into each other and/or flip, several are bumped off the road and many nearly hit pedestrians. A driver is shot; his car spins into a pole and explodes. A car drives off a bridge and flips several times (we see bloody cuts on the passengers' faces). A car hits a motorcycle and the driver is flung to the ground. Cars drive through fruit stands and one drives into tables at an outdoor cafe and hits several diners.

LANGUAGE 6 - About seven F-words, a scatological reference and a couple mild obscenities.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
