These operatives, known as "Ronin," are assembled in France by a mysterious client for a seemingly routine mission: steal a top-secret briefcase. But the simple task soon proves explosive asother underworld organizations vie for the same prize...and to get the job done, the members of Ronin must do something they've never done before...trust each other.

Ronin Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Ronin represents something of a blast from the past from Fox/MGM; this 1080p presentation of the film features the antiquated MPEG-2 video codec while framed inside a 2.35:1 window. All things considered, the transfer could have been worse. Detail is solid, but unexceptional. Faces reveal a bit of texture and lines, as do clothing. The image appears slightly hazy at times, gray and dim, and flesh tones display something of a ghastly appearance early in the film, but later take on a redder appearance. Detail fluctuates at times, and the image appears overly soft in several instances. Black levels fluctuate from a very dark shade of gray to rock-solid. The film retains quite a bit of grain that spikes in several scenes. The print doesn't feature all that many blemishes, but like the grain, the presence of spots and debris spikes in certain scenes. Naturally-lit daytime scenes fare the best, featuring a strong and stable color palette, moderate detail, accurate flesh tones, and visible yet minimal film grain. Ronin is nothing more than an acceptable Blu-ray transfer. It certainly isn't ugly or poor; it's simply mediocre, hit-or-miss, and rather disappointing overall.


Ronin Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Ronin makes its long-awaited U.S. debut on Blu-ray with a powerful DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack, easily serving as the technical highlight of the package. Dialogue is slightly hard to hear at times, particularly during the film's opening act. Music isn't played with much vigor, and it's presented primarily across the front. The track picks up nicely during the early action sequences, but still doesn't deliver the aggressive, heart-stopping, clear soundtrack one might expect, and that is heard later on. Gunshots ring out with what seems to be a slight lack of authority, but the more hard-hitting music spills nicely from the speakers. Sound effects -- the revving of car engines and the movement of high speed vehicles around the soundstage -- offer a nice experience, oftentimes accompanied by a fair amount of bass, but none of it really makes for a first-class listening experience. The track picks up considerably in chapter 14 and onward as the chase for the suitcase begins. Gunfire erupts loudly and precisely, explosions rock the foundation, and the surround speakers kick into overdrive with plenty of discrete effects. Of note is a tunnel chase/shootout in chapter 25; a few gunshots reverberate through the soundstage with alarming clarity and power, and the speeding vehicles, too, allow the viewer to practically experience the thrill of the chase first-hand. When it counts, Ronin sounds fantastic on Blu-ray and the latter half of the film more than makes up for the early sequences, but a few minor blemishes keep it from receiving a perfect score.
