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.

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!

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.

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.

"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.

Even though this film won the 2008 Script Pipeline Screenwriting Competition, it totally bombed at the box office and critics gave it horrible reviews. John Travolta is responsible for that because who looks like he's auditioning for Abraham Lincoln with that fake chin curtain beard and black sprayed on hair. The whole film I kelp thinking "where is your top hat, dude?" Either that or putting him to pasture on an Amish farm. But that's just looking at him, the real torture comes when he opens his mouth and tries to convince us that he is Serbian. His fake accent is so bad, there are times you can't even understand what he's saying. They expect is to believe that he is an angry former Scorpions soldier that was supposed to have been killed by an American death squad but wasn't (as if), so he's spent the last 18 years of his life looking for when he could get his revenge.

De Niro plays an American veteran and former NATO operative who lives reclusively in a gorgeous cabin in the Appalachian Mountains of upper Georgia. He's basically a hermit, avoiding even his own family because he's still haunted by his memories of war. He's exchanged his gun for a camera and does different kinds of shooting these days, the kind that requires a darkroom. You wonder then, why he would ever pick up a Serb in the woods of Georgia and invite him into his house for an evening of breaking bread, Johnny Cash records and shots of Jagermeister in the first place. It's just terribly unbelievable.

I want to blame Travolta for this whole mess, and wonder why they didn't they hire a real European actor to play the role instead. There are so many great ones.
