UPDATED: Ronin Special Edition Blu-Ray Detailed

UPDATED:  A new piece of artwork has been released for this one.  You can check out the Blu-Ray cover below, which has a nice retro look to it.  It wouldn’t look out of place at all as an old VHS cover.  This movie will be released at the end of the month.

    I remember watching this in the theater in 1998. Didn’t know much about it beforehand and what to expect, and then it blew away all expectations. Good times.
    It’s the kind of experience you never get in theaters nowadays. This movie is action quality on every level.

    Fuckin Gregor switching the cases in the background! Love this movie, it’s an old school action thriller throwback I didn’t expect from 90’s De Niro. If you haven’t seen it and are browsing this site you need to go watch it now!
