Dallas Observer
As is common in a Frankenheimer picture, the plot lines get a bit tangled in Ronin, but the atmosphere is tense, the style impeccable.
88
ReelViews
Ronin manages to remain focused on the plot and the characters, even while staging increasingly complicated pyrotechnic set pieces and offering its share of white-knuckle moments.
88
Ronin represents an exhilarating return to form for Frankenheimer.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
What an impeccably crafted film this is -- slightly impoverished in theme, perhaps, but so rich everywhere else that it seems rude to notice.

Chicago Sun-Times
I enjoyed the film on two levels: for its skill and its silliness.

L.A. Weekly
A film in which the mechanics of the plot are far less interesting, and vital, then the interior landscape of men who exist outside the law.
67
It remains head and shoulders above what little competition there is by virtue of its stellar casting, editing, and above all, Frankenheimer's fluid, explosive direction.
50
Washington Post
Although laced with adrenaline and flavored with noirish seasoning, John Frankenheimer's Ronin is a disappointingly conventional thriller.
50
Ronin eventually becomes tiresome, but the pairing of De Niro and Reno never gets old.
50
Film Threat
The concept is intriguing and the car chases are pure adrenaline.
