Ronin (DVD, 1999)
A clever movie involving a stellar cast of players. There is Sam (Robert DeNiro) probably ex-CIA, and Vincent (Jean Reno), who never really says, but more than likely is Ex-French counter espionage or Interpol. Stelland Skarsgaard is Gregor, the Ex-KGB Russian computer expert, and Larry (Skip Suddith), another American who is the transportation expert. Another early associate is Spence (Sean Bean), who is supposedly a British Demolitions expert, but is identified as a fraud, and subsequently dismissed. They are all working for Dierdre (Natascha McRlhone), the IRA liaison to Shamus O'Roark, an internationally wanted terrorist.
They have all been summoned to a warehouse in Paris to formulate a plan to steal the unknown contents of a case from a group of gangsters in the South of France. Exactly is in the case, no one ever says, but the body count is going to be large. The Russians want the case badly. When the team finally steals it, Gregor, the Russian, double-crosses the team and takes it for himself. He tries to kill the entire team with a fake case filled with explosives. A hunt for him begins as he is trying to sell the case to the Russians. The team breaks up the sale but Sam is wounded and Larry is killed by Shamus, who takes Gregor hostage to recover the case. Vincent takes Sam to a contact of his and he is treated for the gun shot wound. Vincent's friend also is able to locate Gregor. Deirdre and Shamus have Gregor. Gregor mailed the case to himself in Paris so they must keep him in order to retrieve the case from the Poste. Gregor is able to escape again and meets a group of Russian Gangsters who want to buy the case. It is to take place at an ice skating arena where a big name Russian skater is to perform. Everything is a double-cross, and this time Gregor is killed. Almost immediately, Shamus show up again, dressed like French police, and shoots the Russians and grabs the case. Deirdre is also dressed like police and waiting for him in a police car. Sam sees her and tells her to leave. She says that she will leave, but only if he will too. He tells her that he is still CIA and they are there to get Shamus. She leaves. Now trapped, Shamus shoots Sam and Vincent. Both are wounded again, but Shamus is killed and Sam gets the case. In the end, nobody ever finds out what was in the case. It was all an elaborate ruse by the CIA to get to Shamus.
