So It's not fair to judge them evenly with other genre's. Ronin is great within It's genre. It's better than a majority of action films but isn't up there with the all time greats. It's good. Second tier action film, in the 70-85 range.

And I do agree with the torture porn thing. Pretty terrible.

yeah id say thats fair

What say you about Ringu?

yeah, good. nice concept scared me fully, but my god have the japanese milked this to hell, talk about starting phases of film many damn imitations with exactly the same concept spewed out from that country- and subsequent american remakes- the grudge etc etc etc etc, i even saw one traversty called dont answer the phone- the remake it was literally the ring accept with mobile phones instead of video tapes....
