My Old Addiction



(out of 5)

Boring thriller by John Frankenheimer has  leading a wasted cast of exceptional talents. A group of ‘Ronin’ (leaderless samurai) are gathered from around the world by  for their various technological talents and sent on a mission to retrieve a politically sensitive briefcase. The job gets a little tricky when a member of their team pockets the thing for himself and tries to run away with it. The stunt work in the car chase scenes is inspiring (and what the film sells itself on the most), but like in Gone in 60 Seconds, there’s not much else to it.
