Editorial Reviews

Deep in the Appalachian mountains, a reclusive American military veteran (Robert De Niro) and a European tourist (John Travolta) strike up an unlikely friendship. But when the tourist's true intentions come to light, what follows is a tense battle across some of America's most forbidding landscape proving the old adage: the purest form of war is one-on-one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great movie July 22, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I was SO surprised by this movie. The acting was very good, the scenery was beautiful and the story was such that it really made you think afterwords. Not because it was confusing, but because of the moral implications, etc. I would HIGHLY recommend this movie to anyone. Some of the fight scenes are a bit graphic, so just be aware.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Acting, So-so Story July 18, 2013
By Simon
Format:Amazon Instant Video
When two powerful actors of our time star in a movie, there is no doubt that you have to watch it. The acting is nothing short than great on either side, DeNiro vs. Travolta, but I didn't dig the story that much. Never the less, it is a good movie and definitely worth watching. If you have seen and liked movies like Sleuth, either 1972 version or the 2007 remake, then you will like this one as well. DeNiro is truly at home and comfortable with his well-known grumpy yet intelligent attitude, while Travolta has taken a different yet challenging role. Honestly, I cannot say more about this movie without ruining it for you, since it is really a two man movie, so I just end my mini review here. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Timely and disturbing August 9, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Killing Season is a movie that thrills and leaves you thinking. It is timely because the tension echoes many of the current situations going on in society. In their own right each of the two in the movie have their reasons (and justifications) for their points and places. In the end (sorry, no spoiler here) the stark realization of the view from the other side really brings home the powerful moral of this movie. De Niro is his usual amazing self and Travolta delivers a nearly convincing eastern bloc persona. Well worth seeing.

"Sometimes things become part of you whether you like it or not." Benjamin Ford (De Niro) is a former American soldier who served in Bosnia in 1992. Emil Kovac (Travolta) is a former Serbian soldier who served in 1992. Twenty years later Ford lives alone in a remote cabin trying to forget the past while Kovac has been searching for Ford for twenty years. When the two meet up again a new war begins, this time it becomes personal. I have never really been a Travolta fan and lately it seems that De Niro is very hit or miss so my excitement was tempered for this one. I have to say I really did enjoy this and the movie kept me interested the entire time. The movie is basically just these two hunting each other in the woods while they try to get inside the head of the other and try and understand why this is happening. The only real problem with this is that when Kovac catches Ford he lets him get away and vice versa so it gets a little repetitive but that doesn't really detract too much from the enjoyment of the movie. Overall, kind of a cross between First Blood and the Killer Elite. I enjoyed it. I give it a B.

I really enjoyed the whole story line of the movie. It really had so many twists and turns that you didn't know what to expect next. They picked a beautiful scene for filming and you can really see the true beauty of this wonderful country.

John Travolta really did well portraying his character and use of the accent. If you had never watched John perform before you would think he really was from Bosnia. Robert Di Niro as always does a great job and cannot complain about his role in this film.

I did get a little annoyed with the back and forth torturing but that was what kept you waiting to see who has the upper hand next. I was a little disappointed with the outcome of the ending but then again I didn't expect that turn at all. I would like to see more films in the future with John and Robert acting together.
So watch and enjoy this suspenseful action film.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than I expected August 9, 2013
By JimS
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I was more interested in seeing how they could make Robert De Niro and John Travolta work out in a movie such as this. I didn't expect much, but was actually impressed with the flip-flop of predator/prey that took place. I didn't even recognize John Travolta at first. He plays a great crazy Bosnian. Some of the graphics are a bit intense so be ready to squirm if you don't like the sight of blood or torture.

Saw this film last night and could not believe how good it was. Exciting as hell (top 30 action movie all time), and the story is excellent. Cinematography is excellent. Travolta (always good), and Deniro (best role for him in a long while) make Killing Season a must watch. Way above the cut movie about cat and mouse battle between two former soldiers (with each switching who is the cat, and who is the mouse throughout), but more importantly, about the devastating effects of war on a man's soul and psyche. This one will stay with you for awhile. Real emotional impact. I only regret not having seen this on the big screen.

Absolute must see in my opinion. Thanks for reading.

3.0 out of 5 stars Travolta & De Niro August 13, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
If it weren't for Travolta and De Niro, two outstanding actors, I would have given this a 2. But both these guys are favorites of mine and played their roles well as usual, but the storyline didn't do a whole lot for me.
