Five highly skilled freelance operatives gather in Paris for a no-questions-asked snatch job of a metal briefcase, contents unknown, held by the Russian mafia. The title refers to a masterless samurai; presumably, these five are paid by the IRA. Gripping and complex thriller, with one of the best and longest car chase scenes ever committed to film.
